A while back BookSneeze, a Thomas Nelson review club, sent me God’s Little Princess Devotional Bible for review. We have several other story books by Sheila Walsh so I was excited to have a look at this one. Chloe (just turned 4 years) fell in love with it instantly.  It’s the perfect little book to teach little girls about inner beauty and the character qualities that make a true princess, reflecting their position as daughter of the King.

The Cover

The first thing that attracted me, and my little Chloe-Princess (4 yrs) to it was the beautiful cover. You can’t tell a book by it’s cover to be sure but it certainly is the first thing you see. Anyhow, the jewel in the crown is actually a pink sparkly jewel in the crown and the word ‘Bible’ is a glittery pink. Chloe fell in love with the book from the moment she saw it  {because it was pink and sparkly} and begged me to read some immediately. {She was 3 1/2 when the received the book}.

The Pages

Each page is decorated colorfully, with some kind of border, graphics or picture. Pinks, purples, peach, light blue, yellows and turquoise. The color scheme is quite attractive and makes it very interesting to look at for her. Even when I am not reading it to her, she enjoys carrying it around the house in her purse or diaper bag, then sitting down and flipping through it “reading”.

The font is a good size, not too big that there is hardly any content to a page but not too small that it is hard to read or too much content; a good balance I would say.

Content

Speaking of content, this book covers a huge amount of bible knowledge, stories, facts and teachings in a way that little ones can understand. Though I have a younger girl, I would say that there are parts that would appeal to older girls too.With 337 pages, it starts at the beginning with Eve and covers many other women in the bible such as Sarah, Esther, Ruth and more. Not only does it talk about the lessons each one of these important women can teach us but the focus of the book is about princess qualities and how it isn’t outward beauty but inner character that makes a true princess. It’s filled with bible stories, non-bible but moral-building stories which apply biblical truths, songs, activities and questions to help review material covered. It’s quite a comprehensive book in this cute little package!

Features:

“Features included are: Beauty Secrets, Bible Princesses, My Hero (Scripture promises), Take a Bow (Easy plays that are Bible-focused), I Adore You (Put girls energy to use with songs, scripture and worship), Royal Truths, Down In My Heart (Scripture Memory), Princess Charming, Worthy of Love (Ideas to show how to love her royal subjects: family, siblings, friends and those in the community).”

Use in our Family:

Chloe loves the book and we do read the book but it is quite a girls book from the colors to the content (though the title of the book was a pretty good indicator too!). Since I have two tots, a boy (2 1/2)  and a girl (just turned 4), we don’t actually use this book during our daily devotional time but rather it is something that I might read during a special alone time with Chloe. The scripture is from the International Children’s Bible. I’m a King James girl myself but know that most children’s books do not use the KJV.  Overall, I think God’s Little Princess Devotional Bible is a wonderful book to help teach a budding princess that the most beautiful women are those who love and serve the Lord.
