Book Review: How To Be God's Little Princess

How To Be God's Little Princess
by Sheila Walsh

A fun guide book for God’s little princesses.
What does it take to be a princess? Sheila Walsh has some important answers to share for every little girl. This trendy design features black & white line art and a two-color pink and black interior. The art will tie to each how-to topic in the book—how to make the best pink cookies, how to wear a tiara, how to earn money at home, how to care for a royal dog, how to be respectful, how to use good manners, how to help Mom, how to follow Jesus, how to act like a princess when things go terribly wrong, and many more.


This book is about so much more than being a "princess."  It's about becoming the girl that god wants you to be. It's such a great little book for girls. Not only is it filled with fun quizzes, crafts, and recipe's, its has lots of good life lessons as well. I think that this is very important. That's is the thing that I like most about this book. Sometimes in this day and age we put too much emphasis on being perfect - and that being a "little princess" means being perfect. This book shows that that's not what it means at all. Walsh puts emphasis being modest, listening to parents (royal advisers), and even how to say sorry.
 I also really liked the fact that she drops in scriptures to go along with some of the things that she's saying. In one of the chapters she even talks about what it means to be God's princess - a daughter of the most high king! She injects God into this book without making it sound droll and boring. She actually relates it to young girls. As a christian, it makes me very happy to see young girls learning to see themselves in God's eyes, and this book certainly does that and more.
