Book review: How To Be God's Little Princess

I recently had the opportunity to review a new book from Sheila Walsh, called How To Be God's Little Princess. Here's a bit about this fabulous book, from the publisher's website:
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.
I absolutely adore this book, and it's going on to my daughter's bookshelf along with several other special books that I'm looking forward to sharing with her when she's older.  How To Be God's Little Princess teaches important lessons about etiquette and manners and behavior, but does so in a fun way.  Lessons like dealing with conflicts in friendship or table manners are mixed in with tips on wearing a tiara and tie dying shirts.

I also really appreciate that, even beyond all the lessons on manners and etiquette, this book shares the message that the princess is wonderful just how she is, that mistakes are okay, and that she is always loved and beautiful in God's eyes.  There are so many influences in young girls' lives that spread a different message, so I think it's important for girls to have books like this that remind them of the truth.

The book itself is attractive, with a nice, pink, hardcover and lots of shiny lettering. The information in the book is nicely laid out, with a very detailed table-of-contents, pretty fonts and nice graphics throughout. This would be a wonderful gift for the young girl in your life!
