I think after reading this that a princess should fold her clothes and hang them the right way.
I like doing a book review because it is fun. If you come to Scotland or I go to your country, I will share my princess book with you anytime!" Malika Afif-Watt
Malika and I enjoyed reading this book together and it makes a refreshing change to find a princess book about emotions and behaviour instead of image. (Although we love the books Princess and the Pigsty and The Worst Princess which also promote the idea of non-conformity!)
This book asks us to "Look inside your heart!" and focusses on positive behaviour. Mimi, Princess Naevah's grandmother, tells us that Princesses "never hit, kick or bite."
My youngest daughter Ameenah bit Malika on the arm tonight so I think I will have to read it again!
Anyway an enjoyable read with a positive message - Thanks! Emma Afif-Watt

These morals and rules should be instilled and set during these critical formative years, because the difference between right and wrong is not clear at this age. The naysayers who feel this book is "counterintuitive" clearly forget this children's book is for YOUNG children. When bad names are crossed out and good lessons have impact in Princess Neveah, they are powerful reinforcements of positive LEARNED behaviors. None of the ideal behaviors in children are INNATE, and children look to their Mimis, Mamas, Grandmas, Nanas, Mothers, Grandmothers and other role models in their lives to help them find the right path. Children are shaped by environment--a fact documented in a plethora of research on child psychology, so our duty as parents is to provide a positive, instructive environment.
The principles outlined in this beautifully illustrated book are ones I've worked to teach my daughter from a very young age and continue to do so on a daily basis; bullying, bad manners, and other ill behaviors do not make for good princesses. My goal is to raise my daughter to be a gentle queen and a child of the light, and Princess Nevaeh supports my spiritual beliefs and the morals I instill in my little girl.Read more ›
However, Mimi goes on to explain that she can see how Nevaeh works hard to improve her behavior, and that Nevaeh has always been her princess, from the moment she was born. In the end, Mimi encourages Nevaeh to keep behaving well, that she is beautiful inside and out, and that she can accomplish anything she can dream of.
This book is well-written and I can see it being quite engaging for young children, in my opinion maybe 4-8 year olds. It explains very succinctly that it’s not nice to hit, or call names, or bully others (and as you know, bullying in school has become a very big problem as of late), and it lays down the rules in a way intended to be easy for young children to relate to, as well as retain. Anyone who has young children around, parents, grandparents, caretakers, or foster parents, should consider this book for the library of their children. It has the feel of a book they’ll want to read (or have read to them!) over and over again. It's encouraging as well as educational! Nicely-done!
As a parent this was a good read because I loved that it is not just a pointless story line but one that they can learn from. It encourages obedience and respect which is very important to our family. I love that the grandmother explains that it is not how you look and what you have or the crown that makes you a princess but rather how you behave that makes you a princess and sets you apart from others.
Overall this is a very sweet book with a life lesson that any child would benefit from but specifically little girl or princess would love. I really like the bright pretty pink and colorful pages. The book reads well on a kindle, computer or laptop.
I would say the best age range for the book is ages 2 to 7. While older children can certainly learn from it the littles will enjoy it most.
I will recommend this to my teacher friends for their classes. It is very cute and what a great price too!
