Specifically for Persian parents, it is essential to encourage their children to read good Persian stories and children books. This wonderful book is one of the few well written Persian story books in English. Mehry Reid tells these anecdotes with Persian passion. This book is exciting to read for children and it is reminiscing for the parents, remembering their old stories which they have heard from their grandparents and parents.
I purchased this book for my little princess who is at age 7, already a hardcore Persian Nationalist just like her Papa! It is so wonderful to see Iranian American children and in general Iranian children abroad or Expats to cherish their rich Persian culture.
I publish the largest Iranian website on Internet and my job is to protect and serve the Persian culture. One way to do this task is to get your children to learn the Persian culture. Indeed, one way to learn the Persian culture is to read Persian stories. This book is one of the best. We must support good Persian children authors by reading their books. There are many Persian story books written in English, but this one is nostalgic, well written and exciting to read. Go for it, Little Persian Princess test drove it and loved it!
