Princess Stories is must have book for girls ages 4 through 8 years old. No make believe fairy tales here, the stories here are taken and written in a first-person narrative about twenty nine woman whom stories can be found in the Bible. The 30th story is about the child reading the book or the child you’ll be reading this too. I love that this was added to remind us that we are all daughter’s of the King and that makes us special Princesses.
This book is beautifully illustrated. It very colorful and very eye appealing from the characters representing the women in the Bible to the full page colored backgrounds. It’s exciting to turn the page to see what’s next.
Each story is four pages and written in a first person rhyming style. There is title addressing who the character is, a bible verse where her story can be found, a short write up that talks about her life, another passage of scripture that focuses on her character trait, and a section called Princess Pondering in which their are questions to be discusses about what was just read.
This is a great book to read through in a month as a devotion with your child, to incorperate into a Sunday School Class lessons, and so much more. I highly recommend this book! I am excited to jump into this book with my daughter soon since she’s been asking a lot more about God, Jesus, and the stories that can be found in Bible.

Raising a Modern-Day Princess: Inspiring Purpose, Value, and Strength in Your Daughter By: Pam Farrel, Doreen Hanna
By Pam Farrel & Doreen Hanna / Tyndale House
Help your daughter journey into womanhood with a healthy self-image and knowledge of who she is in Christ! Writing from their personal experiences, co-authors Farrel and Hanna stress the importance of creating a rite-of-passage ceremony for your young woman; provide helpful tips in chapter-end “Mentor Moment
The book Raising a Modern-Day Princess by authors Pam Farrel and Doreen Hanna has moved me and it’s entirely changed my way of thinking in how to raise my own daughter as well as taught me how to influence the young woman around me.
Grace, dignity, inner beauty, and self worth, traits every daughter of the King should have instilled into her life. Often enough no one is taking the time to celebrate daughter’s journey into becoming the woman God has created them to be. It’s not hard at at all to do this, in fact Raising a Modern-Day Princess suggest many types of rite of passage celebrations both big and small that can change and impact a girls life forever. The examples of personal testimony of mothers, fathers, and daughters that took part in this are ever so moving.
Not often is it that a book speaks such revelations that tugged at my heart strings and left me in tears. I encourage every sister as well as brothers in Christ to pick up this book and read it.
I promise you, if you take the advice of this book, whom ever God has laid on your heart will feel purpose, value, and strength in moving forward and following the path God has laid in front of them.
This book is on the top favorite reads for 2010 and ten for me, and I am quite honored and blessed by those that contributed in writing these words of truth. If I could, I would personally give everyone I know a copy of Raising a Modern-Day Princess.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Generosity, Intelligence, Beauty, and Confidence are character traits that should be instilled into every little girl. These four very important traits also known as the four pillars of princess hood which are highly encouraged to learn by My Princess Academy.
If you visit My Princess Academy, you’ll find many enjoyable interactive games and activities which build skills in the four pillars before mentioned. As your child goes through each level/game, she will gain points to use in the My Princess Academy Shop. Know that this site is geared toward ages of girls three and up though my 18 month old daughter enjoyed watching mommy explore it.
My daughter is definitely our little princess, so I was really thrilled when I saw how affordable the products in the princess academy store were. You’ll find the store is filled with dresses, tiaras, wands and boas and more!
My daughter and I were given the chance to review the princess pettiskirt thanks to My Princess Academy! Oh my goodness gracious, it’s adorable! As soon as I received it in the mail, I put it on my daughter right away! She felt pretty special I could tell, and had fun spinning in circles with it on and giggling ever so sweetly.
The pettiskirt is Lilac and Teal Trimmed in color, made of yards of fluffy soft polyester chiffon, a gathered satin elastic waistband and tied with a deluxe satin ribbon. It even comes with its own hanger! Our hanger read explains about the character trait of patience and reads… patience is your ability to wait you turn or work through a challenge. Princesses should try to be patient with themselves and other people and things around them. I love it, your child can have fun playing pretend/dress up as well as learn and improve her own personal character traits.
