With three girls in the house, we’ve been gifted our fair share of princess books. I’m one of those moms who would rather dig into books about pirates, bugs or dogs. But this princess book is quite different… the little girl in this story is average by day and dreams of becoming a princess at night. She still fancies a frilly dress and tea parties, but she also has some epic adventures; fighting fires and dragons, playing leapfrog in the mud and dancing with trolls. The ending is my favorite though, when the girl wakes up, dusts some glitter off and realizes her dream may not have been just a dream after all.
As a mom, I love that this story shows my littles that their imagination is limitless and even girly girls can be mighty. 💕👑
