How to Be God's Little Princess by Sheila Walsh

How to Be God's Little Princess:
Manners and etiquette tips for your "royal" tween by beloved author of the Gigi, God's Little Princess series, Sheila Walsh

Seattle, Washington - Teaching your daughter how to be a princess involves more than just a pretty dress! Women of Faith® speaker and recording artist Sheila Walsh returns to the Gigi, God's Little Princess series with a new interactive guide book for 9-12 year old readers. How to Be God's Little Princess: Royal Tips of Manners and Etiquette for Girls (Thomas Nelson, $9.99, ISBN: 1400316448, April 14, 2011) gives girls a fun tool to discover how to dress, how to act, and why that's even important!

Increasingly, we see tween girls of today embracing the prevalent "anything 
How to Be God's Little Princessgoes" spirit of our culture. Sheila seeks to combat that spirit and reinforce God's standard in their lives. She takes a holistic approach by not just focusing on behavior but also addressing the heart. Sheila says that "it is God's Word that has the power to hold us through the fiercest storms. It is God's Word that shows us how to live in a world that has largely turned its back on our Father. It is God's Word that allows us to stand firm when everything else seems to be falling apart." How to Be God's Little Princess will supplement what parents, churches, and youth workers may already be teaching their tween girls.

In our hurried world, the art of manners and etiquette may seem like rules from a by-gone era. Nothing could be further from the truth. Etiquette isn't old-fashioned-it's relevant today! Many girls find themselves lost when it comes to what to do, when to do it, and why! Girls need the confidence that good manners and proper etiquette provide. In How to Be God's Little Princess, girls will learn important life skills and discover for themselves how to navigate the do's and dont's of life. Sheila's hope is that young girls will see that making wise decisions about clothes, friends, family, make-up, and more can be FUN!

How to Be God's Little Princess is a must-have resource for tweens and parents of tweens as they navigate this growing-up "stuff" together. It's also a great educational tool as Sheila combines practical info, humor, quizzes, and fun projects into a guide that parents and tweens can do together or that tweens can share with their friends. At an affordable price, this is the perfect birthday gift for a tween or a great addition to an Easter basket. In addition, How to Be God's Little Princess would be a great bonding gift for a mom and daughter on Mother's Day. Look for the book at Barnes & Noble, Borders and wherever fine books are sold.

My Take:  I love it!  It has so much information that I want my 13 year old daughter to know!  Along with fun activities, cute illustrations, help with social situations, etiquette and manners, the author drives home the most important aspect - you are a daughter of a King.  You are a child of God and he loves you when you are having a good day and when you are having a bad day.  Scriptures are included to support each area.

My favorite parts of the book are dressing for the occasion, including modesty.  She includes suggestions for being fashionable and modest (leggings under short skirts or dresses, a long t-shirt for low-riding jeans or shop in the boys department) and how to select a tiara that is best suited for you.  Every little girl should own a tiara.  In fact, every woman should own one, too.

I think I'll go get one right now...
