Format: Paperback
I have been using this as a read aloud book for my daughters and they have really enjoyed it. It is refreshingly old fashioned and encourages girls to be kind, truthful, unselfish, a disciple of Christ, to think of others before themselves, to be modest, industrious, thrifty, to grow into a virtuous woman, etc. It is not very politically correct and the author is pretty blunt in her assessments of people and situations at times (at least more blunt than I would be). The King's Daughter is probably for girls not over around 13 or so years old (unless they are not used to worldly reading, then they would enjoy it even beyond that age). I would compare this book to Beautiful Girlhood, although King's Daughter is probably for a younger girl than Beautiful Girlhood. Another book it could be compared to is Dear Princess, although King's Daughter contains stories as opposed to Dear Princess which contains short statements on various topics. The King's Daughter is also a good lead in to a short devotional or discussion on various topics.

Format: Paperback
If you want to plant christian seeds before your girl(s) are quite old enough to understand Beautiful Girlhood, this is the book to get.

This book has a wonderful way of teaching biblical virtues, such as guidng your tongue from saying hurtful things, the consequences of not keeping clothing and/or bedroom clean, and how you can be kind and genourus no matter how rich or poor you are. Even though the book talks of things such as "keeping your clothes mended and tidy" it is not mennonite. it is clearly christian, though staged in the 19th century. In case you can't tell, I highly recommend this book!

Format: Hardcover
"The King's Daughter and Other Stories for Girls" is part of my daily Bible Study curriculum for my daughters and I. The stories use sometimes serious situations to show moral choices and consequences. There is depth and heart in each short story, which I admit has frequently brought me to tears. One story in particular involved a cause and effect involved in bearing false witness. The consequence was to the point where all of us ladies were choked up, my youngest sobbing. Think "Little House on the Prairie" in short story form. I recommend this book to all of my Christian Homeschooling friends.

Format: Paperback
We are reading this book to our daughters. After reading some of the others feedback, I have to ask, "How can teaching your child the value of picking up her room feminist?". One of the stories is of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette's daughter. How she was in a prison, and had grace. She also kept her room clean! It parallels a story of a daughter who wants to be a princess and have servants to not keep her room clean. So, she tells her of "The Kings Daughter". It has many lessons in this book ( and was written in the early 1900's ) that are not of the same value as most people today. I think it's a beautiful book, with traditional teaching.

We absolutely loved this book. We used it as a read aloud resource for my daughter, & it really helped strengthen her reading skills when we read it together because the language is so rich. The stories are wonderful & get the child thinking. I love the short story format. We homeschool & have taken a story a week to read & reflect on the moral meanings. I can't say enough good things about this book! A must buy if you have girls!
