Review: Recently at our house there have been a few episodes with a certain little 4-year-old "princess" over her clothes...If she doesn't get the dress she wants to wear, we hear loud dramatic outbursts of "Then I'm NOT going to be a PRINCESS!!!" Good heavens, what will we do with her when she is a teenager?! After getting tired of hearing this over and over, I sat her down and talked with her about how some children in the world don't even have any clothes to wear, and about being thankful. She stopped suddenly and was shocked and horrified..."Some children don't have ANY clothes?"
"That's right," I told her.
She thought for a minute and then looked at me in disbelief..."Then show me, where are the children with no clothes?!" :-o
After our little chat about being thankful and about children who don't have clothes, we have had far less trouble getting dressed in the morning!
This sweet little book is a wonderful addition to our library and is a great way to talk to kids about what's really important. In this colorful story with adorable illustrations, Sadie travels the world and learns about giving to others. She learns how compassion and generosity bring far more happiness than having "princessy" stuff on the outside. She even encounters a lovely surprise...she gets to see what a real prince looks like! :)
