I had the chance this week to review a book by one of my favorite authors! His Little Princess by Sheri Rose Shepherd is a precious book for young girls. Have you ever heard of Sheri Rose Shepherd? She has an incredible line of women's devotional books: His Princess-Love Letters From Your King, His Princess-Prayers to My King, His Princess Bride-Love Letters From Your Prince and more! The adult books are short little letters that are Biblically based reminders of how much God loves us. I bought the boy's devotion for my son a few years ago because I knew we would use it one day - His Mighty Warrior-A Treasure Map From Your King and am thrilled to have the one for little girls now. His Little Princess features a two page spread for each topic. On one page is a "letter" from the King that is based on a scripture, and reminds little girls of how special they are to God. On the opposite page is a "prayer" to God - an example of how we can thank God for what He has given us and blessed us with. Some of the topics included in the book are: "My Beautiful Creation", "My Unselfish Princess", "Take Courage, My Princess", and "Jesus Died for You". I highly recommend anything by Sheri Rose Shepherd and am happy to be adding this to our library. My little girl is only 4, but I would guess this is ideal for 5-10 year olds.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
I was hesitant to get this book at first, thinking it might just be full of "fluff." But my husband and I are putting together our own preschool homeschool curriculum this year for our 4-year-old daughter based on the theme of what it means to be a true princess of the King of Kings, so we thought this just might be perfect if the content was sound. After reading through this book in its entirety (all 50 letters, each including a corresponding bible verse & prayer), I can't tell you how pleased I am that we found this resource! The letters speak to so many truths our daughter needs to hear, and are written in such a gentle way that even the most instructive among them remain affirming, yet honest. We plan to use these as an opening devotion for the day or a bedtime reading at night. A wonderful way to instill in your little girl her tremendous worth in Jesus' eyes, an understanding of her Father's heart, and an excitement in living for Him.
