Book Review - How to be God's Little Princess

How to be God's Little Princess. Royal tips for Manners, Etiquette, and True Beauty by Sheila Walsh. Sheila is also the author of the GiGi series. 

There are a lot of things I like about this book and some things I really don;t care for.

I love that this book is about Manners. I think it is a very good idea to focus on girls having great manners as well as building Godly Character qualities in little girls. The thing I am concerned about with this book is the emphasis it seems to give about self beauty and image. As a child of God we are to put God first then others and then self.

Some great aspects of the book I really liked:
I liked that it teaches girls to set the table and proper place settings.

I like that it talked about having a good attitude.

Also the importance of good friendship
Some things I did not really care for:

One thing is about wearing the right kind of Tiara

Another thing is how to wave like a princess.

I think there are so many other more important aspects that I think Godly parents should encourage in their daughters above all the princess stuff work on being Christ like and building Character.
I received this book free for review from Thomas Nelson  The opinions posted here are my own.

We've not read this book - we've read another GiGi book from the library and watched a video that was given to us.

My problem with it is that neither the book nor the video explained that being God's Princess involved making a decision to repent of sins, ask Jesus to live in your heart, and then live like Jesus wants you to live.

I am glad to know about that book because I have a little princess of my own. Thanks for the honest recommendation--I'll prepare myself for tiara talk!
