    This book begins by introducing a young girl who calls herself a princess. "Would you like to start your princess training with me?" she asks. Then, every four pages features one attribute: caring for the "castle," being a good friend, meeting strangers and traveling through the kingdom with good manners, being pretty on the inside and the outside, dining, and having a grateful heart. In a conversational manner, our young princess explains the best way to behave, often reminding us what God desires of us in these areas. What I Like: Barnes makes learning good manners fun by incorporating playtime activities many girls enjoy, like tea parties and playing princess. Michal Sparks' watercolor illustrations show lots of fun costumes, and the last two pages of the book are actually paper dolls. (If you don't want to cut up the book, you could easily make color copies of these pages.)What I Dislike: While the author does a pretty good job of bringing up biblical principles where appropriate, I wish she'd included Bible references and quotes, too. And although the Golden Rule is mentioned a few times, the author never explains that it comes from the Bible. Too, all the girls in this book are conspicuously caucasian (although I do appreciate that they have healthy figures). Some parents will also be put off by the mention of "magic words" (like "please" and "thank you").Overall Rating: I've hemmed and hawed whether to give this book a "Good" or "Very Good" review. For my daughter and me, it's somewhere in-between. She likes princess things only somewhat. If your child adores princesses, however, this is probably an ideal book for her

    I love Emilie Barnes stuff but was not a fan of the magic side of things my daughter who is 6 did not like the fantasy and magic stuff that for most kids who grow up with Cinderella suppose that would be fine but for our family was not what I was looking for. All the manner stuff was covered in a nice pretty girlie manner though.

    This is an excellent book that almost every little girl can relate to. Every little girl wants to be a princess. This is also an excellent way to teach manners. My little girl remembered to use her manners in many different ways due to this book. The only reason I didn't give the 5 stars is because there are no pictures of people of color (african or latin heritage) in the book at all. Every little girl wants to be a princess and I considered purchasing this book in bulk but later decided not to since it does not reflect the ethnic population that my children and their friends represent.
