Introducing Gigi, an adorable, self-assured little girl who just knows she's a princess--and always has! "But where is my castle?" she wonders, "and where are my royal jewels?" Children will be thrilled to listen in as Mom and Dad explain that Gigi's not just any princess, but a daughter of the King of kings!
A wonderful discovery for little princesses everywhere, Gigi, God's Little Princess will subtly teach girls of their importance and that they belong to the King of all kings. Recommended for ages 4 to 8.
Sheila Walsh is a powerful Christian communicator who is a unique combination of singer, songwriter, author, and speaker. Formerly co-host with Pat Richardson on The 700 Club and host of her own show, Heart to Heart with Sheila Walsh, she is now a featured speaker at the Women of Faith Conferences. Sheila has created a children's project, Gnoo Zoo, to introduce children and families to God's deep love for them.
A girl discovers that she really is a princess-just not of the variety she had originally thought-in this perky, but ultimately hollow picture book. Gigi feels certain she's royalty, as she enjoys tea parties and all things pink and fluffy, plus her father says, "Goodnight princess, sweet dreams!" to her every evening before bed. But when Gigi asks Daddy about the princess accoutrements she expects (jewels, a crown, loyal subjects, more manageable hair), she learns the truth: "We are children of the greatest King of all... and you are his daughter too. You are God's little princess!" Unfortunately, this revelation is too long in coming in Walsh's (the Gnoo Zoo series) uneven text, which sometimes adopts a knowing, adult tone that may be off-putting to young readers. The tale ultimately comes off as an exercise in semantics: it's not clear that Gigi understands her father's explanation of her princess-dom, as she playfully wonders on the last page "just exactly when will I get my crown?" On the lighter side, Johnson's two-color art (pink and white with black outline) has the loose and breezy feel of fashion sketches, and occasionally suggests the precocious spirit of Hilary Knight's Eloise. Ages 4-7. (Mar.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Whats not to love about a curly-haired, freckle-faced princess with an attitude? Gigi had known from the day she was born that she was a princessalthough she wasnt exactly sure why. With no castle or royal treasures, she didnt live like a princess. She had no subjectseven her cat didnt obey her. Yet, through this little story, Gigi learns that it is not the castle or the crown that makes a princess, but the declaration of the Kingyou are Gods little princess.
This simple message of belonging to the greatest King of all was created by Christian communicator, singer, and songwriter Sheila Walsh. Pink-loving princesses will love the whimsical illustrations by Meredith Johnson. Although royals of all ages may enjoy Gigi and her quest, its simple story line is probably geared to the youngest princesses who lay in wait for a bedtime story and a sweet reminder of Gods gracious love. -- Susan Hammond, Christian Book Previews.com
