Book Review: My Princess Bible

"Little girls are enchanted by princesses, and they love reading about them.... to teach young girls about princesses in the Bible and show them that they, too, are God’s special princesses. My Princess Bible by Andy Holmes (September 2010) is a unique Bible storybook that will help girls ages 0–4 learn about and fall in love with the princesses of the Bible."

A description of the book, from Tyndale House Publishers.

My daughter is 5, a little older then the book's target age group, but she loves princesses, she loves anything pink, and anything with glitter one it; so the book, laying on the table, where I had placed it, immediately caught her attention since the cover is of princesses, is pink, with glitter.

The book has 20, short, stories, about women in the Bible; most stories you may have read before, some you may be new. The stories are written in a rhyming format, focusing on a different woman of the Bible, and the character trait which made them special in God's eyes. Bible references are given for each story.

At the end of each story, the character trait to learn is reinforced by the opportunity to insert the little girl's name, to whom you are reading to, reminding her that she "... is God's special princess". That was my daughter's favorite part, to hear "EM is God's special princess. EM ...."
It captured her attention, and kept her interested in the book.

As mentioned before the stories are short; the perfect length to read one for a bedtime devotional, or several for afternoon story time.

The book is a board book, perfect for the young audience it is written for. If your daughter is a little older, but still loves princesses, then they may also enjoy this book.
