Summary

As a daughter of God, she is royalty. This beautifully illustrated book features all your little princess’s favorite scripture heroines. Each chapter tells the story of a different scripture princess, from Rachel and Leah to Abish and the Lamanite Queen, and even Emma Smith. With women your little girl can look up to, this book makes a perfect present for baptisms, birthdays, or any occasion.

My Review

This is the first time I've seen scripture stories, particularly focusing on women, in a children's chapter book. To be honest, I think it's a marvelous idea. Scripture Princesses simplified and summarized stories about sixteen women from the scriptures in a way that made it easy for grade-school-aged children to comprehend and enjoy them. The writing was perfect for kids and the illustrations added a lot to each story. I would have even loved to have seen the illustrations all in color, but they were still eye-catching and fit each story well. Overall, Scripture Princesses was a book that I enjoyed reading and one that my daughter will definitely enjoy. I'm hoping that the author will write other books as well for both girls and boys.
