How to Be God's Little Princess: Royal Tips on Manners and Etiquette for Girls by Sheila Walsh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As a mother to 4 girls, I figured that this would be a good read for me and them in contributing to "princess type behavior" around our house. I was not disappointed. Sheila Walsh does a very nice job giving "Royal tips for Manners, Etiquette and Beauty" in a contemporary and practical way. She covers table manners- "one must know which fork to use when" as well as being gracious both in a restaurant or home setting. She also covers things like dressing appropriately, (my favorite was picking the correct tiara shape for your facial shape )how to make friends and basic hygiene. Sheila also makes sure to include important safety issues concerning the internet, phone manners and how to use your time wisely to make the most of it. She winds up the book with an important chapter on inner beauty and has the reader look at their actions to make sure that they are exhibiting character qualities that are "princess like" (fruits of the spirit)- Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Gentleness, and Self-control. Most importantly the book talks about the readers considering themselves to be a "daughter of the King" and that a true princess is others focused instead of self- focused. Sheila Walsh accomplishes all this by giving the reader fun quizzes, word games, arts and craft ideas and great scripture to back up all of her points that she is trying to get across. This is a wonderful read for your "tween girls" (9-12 year olds). It will help them to develop "Godly confidence" in lots of situations This book was a part of the Book sneeze program sent to me free of charge for an honest review.
