princess books for kids

July 16, 2012

Time for your weekly princess book update--whether you need it or not! :) 

Cinderella's Dress inspired the above art work. One afternoon, Juliet wanted to design and paint some beautiful dresses. I think they are kind of amazing.

This book is a twist on the classic tale--told from the point of view of two magpies. We liked this one.

Walt Disney's Cinderella--this is a beautiful one. The illustrations are just amazing. It starts with "This is a story about darkness and light, about sorrow and joy, about something lost and something found. This is a story about Love."

I don't think I need to say anymore--except maybe, don't let the "Walt Disney" label throw you off--it's not the same as the movie.

The Twelve Dancing Princesses
Rachel Isadora retells the classic Grimm tale in an african setting. I like how she keeps the integrity of the story, but changes the colors and patterns to represent another culture. She also has a Rapunzel, The Princess and the Pea, The Ugly Duckling, Hansel and Gretel and The Fisherman and his Wife.

The Apple-Pip Princess

Another dark-haired heroine--this story is about the youngest of three princesses who ends up saving her father's kingdom.  I have to say--the illustrations are out of this world. So much inspiration for me and the story is great as well.

Do you have any favorite princess books to share with me?

How do you happen to always find so many fanstatic princess books? I've been thinking for a while that it might be fun to check out as many versions of the same fairy tale as I can find and read them all to enjoy the diversity-- I think it could be cool, or weird, by mostly cool.

I LOVE hearing from you.
