Not far from here lives The Rose Princess in a kingdom ruled by her father the King. One morning she awakes to find a splendid package at the end of her bed full of gifts and a card from her father encouraging her to use the gifts wisely. Unaware of what lies ahead, the princess sets out on a journey of learning and adventure where she meets several people who are in need. Suddenly she realizes that the gifts she has received can help the others, and that she has to make a choice…keep the gifts to herself, or help others by giving the gifts away.

The Rose Princess and the Special Gift is a delightful treasure that teaches children the value of forgiveness and how their decisions can impact the lives of those around them.

Our Thoughts…

The Rose Princess and the Special Gift by Mike de Vetter is a wonderful book that teaches children the importance of being generous with what you have as well sharing with others. A great character building book teaching such an impacting message!

My nearly three year old daughter is quite the fan of this book! She was captivated by the very colorful cheery illustrations as well as the story itself. I love when my daughter shows concern towards others and she was asking many questions about the people the princess came across in the story. My daughter has always been very observant of others and very vocal in her concerns so I was happy that this book really sparked her interest!

I recommend this book for the little princess in your own life and I know I personally am going to be looking for more books by this author.  This book is geared toward children ages 4-8 probably because it has a lot of words and the younger crowd just might not have the attention span for it.
