Editorial Reviews


Receives a 5 Star Review from Readers' Favorite by Emily-Jane Hills Orford 

A little boy is his Mommy's "little prince." He's not so sure he likes the idea because he would have to wear a crown that doesn't fit and sit on a throne. And his mother's not even a queen, so the poor little boy would have to be a prince with a big crown sitting on his throne all alone. Daddy tells the little boy not to worry, "What will be, will be." And the little boy dreams of being an astronaut, a rock star musician, a teacher and much more. But not to worry, there's still plenty of time for dreams and, at bedtime, which is story time, the little boy is quite content to be Mommy's little prince, just as long as he can cuddle up to her and listen to her reading a story.

With so many stories about little girls wanting to be a princess, this story is a real treat: a story about a little boy, who really doesn't want to be a prince, but his mother calls him her little prince. This is definitely a role reversal to the typical what-I-want-to-be-when-I-grow-up children's book. In this age of making sure that little girls don't have to be pretty little princesses, we seem to forget that little boys have big aspirations as well.

Jean M. Cogdell's picture book story, A Reluctant Little Prince, addresses the very real concerns of young children. All children want to know what they will be when they grow up and they all dream about multiple possibilities. While parents treasure their children and sometimes refer to them as their little prince or princess, parents also reassure their youngsters that they can be whatever they want to be when they grow up. It's good to dream and children, both boys and girls, princes and princesses, can always dream big. Lovely illustrations. Well presented and told in rhyming verse.
