5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding for teaching virtue to young and old alike!, January 27, 2005
"The Princess and the Kiss" is an outstanding book for any family who is striving to show their children, from an early age, the value of purity and integrity. In a very tasteful manner, even a small child can follow the plight of the princess who hopes for a suitor who will be worthy of her kiss (her "precious possession")and her hand in marriage. She dare not share her kiss with a man who shows himself as self-centered; her gift is too valuable to be wasted on these. She waits for the "hero" who is humble and generous -- and capable of authentic love -- and at last she can safely entrust her kiss to him. Hence, there are several valuable themes in this book: purity (and the preciousness of it); self-esteem (where the princess recognizes and values the gift of herself, and discerns who is worthy of her gift); the value of integrity and simplicity above vanity and superficiality; and the classic fairy tale ending where good has the ultimate triumph. All of these mature lessons(that will also benefit adults!)can be joyfully highlighted for children with this one book, and the simple text and delightful illustrations make it effortless to teach some truths that are often neglected
