What does it mean to be a princess? A young girl & her mother talk about what princesses are like in this delightful, rhyming book. Ages 4 to 8; 32 pgs.
Every inquisitive little girl wonders what it is really like to be a genuine princess. At the heart of Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots? lives an energetic, spirited, and contemporary child who has lots of important questions for her mom. Do princesses ride tricycles, climb trees, do chores, or have to eat the crusts of their bread? The mother's voice is timelessly reassuring as she answers her daughter's questions and advises her that being like a princess has to do with what we are on the inside. An illustrated picture frame surrounds a mirror at the end of the book which answers the little girl's most important question. This heart-warming book offers a gentle lesson about self-acceptance, and will inspire children to follow their dreams and leave their own mark on the world.
What does it mean to be a princess? A young girl and her mother talk about what princesses are like in this delightful, rhyming book. Inspired by her own daughter's question, "Do princesses wear hiking boots?," Carmela LaVigna Coyle has written a fun, witty book that touches on themes of childhood and identity. The little girl asks if princesses engage in a variety of activities, from climbing trees and walking in the rain to drinking sparkling punch and even doing chores. Her mother has a good answer for everything. Ultimately, the pair come to realize that being a princess isn't a matter of what one does, but what one is inside.
