Girls long to be loved and adored, and give their heart to their hero. God is that hero! The characteristics focused on in this Bible storybook will help your little girl blossom into the princess she was created to be. Virtues to create beauty such as compassion, sharing, and truth are highlighted in fun and engaging ways. The perfect format for girls to learn about their destiny as a daughter of their King. Features included are: Beauty Secrets, Bible Princesses, My Hero (Scripture promises), Take a Bow (Easy plays that are Bible-focused), I Adore You (Put girls energy to use with songs, scripture and worship), Royal Truths, Down In My Heart (Scripture Memory), Princess Charming, Worthy of Love (Ideas to show how to love her royal subjects: family, siblings, friends and those in the community).
I just have to say, WOW. My daughter (Abigael age 7) and I love this book! First of all it’s ADORABLE! There are gemstones set inside the tiara on the front cover and this sent my frilly frills daughter over the edge. She is a girls girl and all things shiny impress her! Also, some of the pink writing on front is glittery and this adds to the ‘princessness’ of the book. Then, you open the book and there is so much color and fun printed paper that it’s just all out eye candy for a little girl like mine. The appearance alone makes my daughter want to open it everyday. Luckily, it doesn’t stop there.
The book itself is broken down into short bible stories that teach daily life lessons on a 4-7 yr old’s level. After each story there are nine different features. Those include:
- Down in my Heart
- Beauty Secrets
- Bible Princesses
- My Hero
- Take a Bow
- I Adore You!
- Princess Charming
- Worthy of Love
- Royal Truths
Each of these are different exercises or examples of how to be God’s little Princess. They teach memory verses, how to be beautiful in the inside, women of the Bible, God’s promises, songs for worship and praise, manners poise and charm, how to love your friends and family, and basic values from the Bible.
Abigael and I especially enjoyed the “Take a Bow” section in which you play out a little scene from the Bible Story you have read. We had some giggles and enjoyed a devotional together. I think if you are looking for some purposeful bonding with your little princess, whether you are mom or dad, this book is perfect for that.
God’s Little Princess Devotional Bible is a fabulous way to instill good Bible based morals into your child from an early age, in a way that appeals to them. Try this book out and you will not be disappointed! Sheila Walsh has done an excellent job of using examples that a child can relate to, an argument with a sibling, feeling left out in a group of friends, getting a bad grade, etc. These things may not seem like a big deal when we look at them from our big grown up world, but this books takes those examples and turns them into a teachable opportunity.
