Princess Stories: Real Bible Stories of God's Princesses: Book Review

I received a complimentary copy of Princess Stories this morning from Tyndale Publishers.  I had hoped to receive this in time to review it for those looking for quality books as gifts for a daughter, granddaughter, niece,  or other young girl on your gift list.  However, it is Christmas Eve and much too late in the day for a Christmas gift in 2011.

You may want to consider, however,  if your child receives a gift of money taking them to a book store and letting them purchase their own copy of  Princess Stories with their gift.  Now, let's talk about Princess Stories.

"Princess Stories" would be  appropriate for girls ages 4 to 8.  The book contains stories about 29 women in the Bible.  It wraps up with the 30th story about the reader, who is God's princess too. Each story has a rhyme about the featured Bible princess followed by a narrative about the woman. There is a Bible verse from a passage of Scripture different from the actual Bible story that relates to that Princess' character trait.  There is a teaching moment opportunity presented via the Princess Ponderings which are questions to guide discussion at the end of each story.

This little book is a delightful way to begin introducing young girls to women in the Bible with more detail than your typical "story book."  Girls are inundated with Princesses in fairy tale literature and other venues of entertainment and play, it is time we introduce them to God's princesses and let them learn the real meaning of being a princess.

This hardcover book is printed in lovely feminine colors and designs on durable paper.  The illustrations are nice and appropriate for the storyline.
