Some of you know I made an urgent trip to the library last week looking for Princess books to read at my community center’s Snowflake Princess Ball. I left with over thirteen books. I say over because thirteen would be bad luck, right? I loved all of them and it was so hard to choose. And you might be treated to one again next week. So here is one of them.
Title: Princes and Princesses
Author/ Illustrator: Sally Lee
Publishing info: / Capstone Press 2013 non fiction
Ages appropriate for: 3 to 7
First three sentences: “Life for real princes and princesses isn’t just fancy balls and beautiful clothing. Princes and princesses spend time helping people.” Then on the opposite page is a photograph which says “Belgium’s Princess Mathilde visits children in Tanzania” with her and an African child smiling while touching her blonde hair.

Why I Love this book and book summary: This book talks about Princes and Princesses from all the kingdoms of the world, Norway, Sweden, Netherlands, Japan and England to name a few. Some of the questions it answers are; “What are Princes and Princesses?”, “What do Princes and Princesses do?” and then there are real photographs of famous Princes and Princesses.
What I Love about this book is that it helped get me ready for my reading Princess books for the ball that was supposed to be today but because of snow it was postponed. , I had gone to the library, frantic, with only two days to get ready and left an hour later with over thirteen books. Three of which were adult length fairy tale books and I’ll get to that in some other post.
“Princes and Princesses” won my heart with the full page size photographs of all the princes and princesses in the world with their names printed in bold letters on the bottom. Plus there was the glossary, index and table of contents. Clearly written for early readers.
For my writer friends here is a great post on fear of writing that Tracy Campbell gave me:
Author publish has given us a publisher open to unsolicited manuscripts of fantasy and science fiction.
For those of you revising a manuscript here is one that positive writer sent out.
Joanna Marple says about Susanna Hill’s project:
Each week a group of bloggers reviews picture books we feel would make great educational reads. To help teachers, caregivers and parents, we have included resources and activities with each of our reviews. A complete list of the thousands of books we have reviewed can be found sorted alphabetically and by topics, hereon Susanna Leonard Hill’s website.
