Format: Hardcover
If you have a daughter whose swept up in the princess craze, A Little Princess in the Making by Emilie Barnes may be just the book to help teach her good manners.

The book begins by introducing a young girl who calls herself a princess. "Would you like to start your princess training with me?" she asks. Then, every four pages features one attribute: caring for the "castle," being a good friend, meeting strangers and traveling through the kingdom with good manners, being pretty on the inside and the outside, dining, and having a grateful heart. In a conversational manner, our young princess explains the best way to behave, often reminding us what God desires of us in these areas. For example, when discussing caring for the "castle," she says:

"When I'm at home in my castle, I have lots of chances to use the magic kingdom words. I say these words when I need something or when someone does something nice for me or when I do something wrong. (Even princesses goof up sometimes!) And these magic words always work! They make me feel happy, and they make everyone around me feel happy, too. Are you ready to learn them? Here they are -
Please
Thank you
Excuse me
I'm sorry
...And did you know that every princess has a special rule she follows? It even has a royal-sounding name! It's called the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

What I Like: Barnes makes learning good manners fun by incorporating playtime activities many girls enjoy, like tea parties and playing princess. Michal Sparks' watercolor illustrations show lots of fun costumes, and the last two pages of the book are actually paper dolls. (If you don't want to cut up the book, you could easily make color copies of these pages.

Format: Hardcover
When I came across this in the local Christian bookstore I immediately loved it. My 5 year old daughter ADORES princesses and this book is right up her alley. My husband and I have always been ones for good manners, but this book really puts it all together in a way my daughter understands and also wants to emulate, not just something Mommy and Daddy make her do! I'm a Christian and I'm quite okay that it's not preachy. I'm actually considering buying this for a friend's daughter and also the one for boys for her son. It's nice to see a book teaching nice ways to behave without all the characters, but still in an appealing way for children. Great book!

I bought this book for my 4 year old granddaughter, who is a little princess. The pages are nicely illustrated,so they hold her attention while she learns manners and how to conduct herself. I highly recommend this book!

Format: Hardcover
This is truly the best book I have found that teaches important life skills in a sweet and princess-fun way. It really helps to reinforce all we are taching our 4 year old at home. She loves being a princesss and is now more aware that being one comes with responsibility.
