God's Little Princess Devotional Bible by Sheila Walsh

Even though I think some "Christian princess" products for little girls are missing the mark, I like this little devotional Bible. It contains about 80 Bible stories, with devotional material designed for ages 4-7. The material is designed for a mom to either read to her daughter and sometimes for them to perform an activity together.

The issue I have with some "princess" products is that I think the world could use fewer "princesses" and more little girls who are learning to grow in the fruit of the Spirit. The devotionals in this book, while often referring to things little girls like to do (play dress-up, feel special, etc), it does do an excellent job of always focusing on what Godly princesses do--which is love and value others.

It took me awhile to understand the flow of the book. It would have helped if each devotional was titled on its first (Bible story) page. The devotionals ran together until I got used to the layout.

It' a cute little glittery hardback with real glass stones on the cover. The real gems are inside.

Thanks to Thomas Nelson Publishers for allowing me to review this book. I am a member of their book review blogger program.
