Description from the publisher:
My Princess Bible is based on the popular format of My Pajama Bible. The new board book combines princess-like art of women of the Bible with art more reflective of the modern-day princesses who will learn of biblical women.

My Princess Bible shares stories of 19 women of the Bible through a rhyming story and a short takeaway summary in prose. Each story ends with two lines that remind the reader of valuable character traits of a princess; the little princesses are even encouraged to recite the learning of the biblical princess using her name in the blank instead: “________ is God’s special princess; ________ is sad when she does something bad” (the takeaway from the story of Eve). This format helps children see biblical women as princesses who teach us about godly principles. It also helps reinforce that the little girl reader is special and seen as a princess because she is created by God. The final story (number 20) is taken from Psalm 139 and features the reader as the godly princess. It reminds the reader that princesses are daughters of the King and are loved by God. Little girls will love to read My Princess Bible over and over to learn about God’s princesses.

My thoughts:
We are so in love with My Princess Bible at my house. My foo-foo girl is all about anything with princesses and I love the fact that there is strong Biblical teaching housed in gentle rhymes and engaging pictures. Rebekah is so excited to have a Princess Bible. She wants to read the stories all the time. I like how they are just a couple pages so it's not a long reading. A younger child would be attentive long enough to get through the story and prayer. Each one gives you a place to say your child(ren)'s name and it really helps them internalize the lessons taught.

I also thought that $12.99 for a thick board book was very reasonably priced. I know you can order My Princess Bible online at most book retailers. I know it just released so it should be in stores now. You can check your local Christian retailer to see if they have a copy.

I hope your princess enjoys My Princess Bible as much as mine did.

Disclosure: I was provided a copy of this book from Tyndale Publishing. No other compensation was received.
