Sheri Rose Shepherd’s latest offering Bible Stories for His Beautiful Princess has been a delightful devotional to share with my daughter. This book shares stories from the Bible, truths pertaining to God’s love for us, how we are all God’s princesses, and how we can apply these truths to our lives. Every little girl loves to learn about and play princess in their own way and what better a way to learn of these things than to grow in their faith of God.
The visual appeal is quite high thanks to illustrator Shelley Dieterichs. There are pretty pastel water colors designs of butterflies, flowers, birds, crowns, and jewels decorating the pages high and low within. The illustrations of each of the stories shared as well as the princesses are done very well!
The book is geared mainly toward toddler and preschoolers though my five year old daughter enjoyed it quite a bit as well. What really drew my daughter in were the illustrations and wanting to learn more about God through the stories. She was eager not only to be read to but to also read it herself aloud. She can read this aloud well because it is written simply as if speaking to a child. Nothing over the top and no large words that wouldn’t be understood.
There are thirty-seven Bible Stories followed by a Prayer of Salvation. The stories start with a Bible verse, a text pertaining to the story the verse comes from, followed with a prayer as well as an application (princess jewel) to take away from the story read. All scripture is taken from the New Living Translation of the Bible.
These is a sweet devotional to share with any little girl under the age of five years old. I believe it would make a wonderful gift! The truth of God is powerful and a book geared toward little girls on how much God loves them like this is a must have. To apply the words of wisdom here can do great and marvelous things in the life of a child and those around them. Highly recommend it!
