My Review:

Princess Nevaeh
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Nevaeh is a little girl who wants to be a Princess. Her Grandmother "Mimi" tells her the things she needs to do and the things she shouldn't in order to be a Princess. Over all the story gives a positive message about being nice to others, and that beauty is something that comes from the inside and not just something seen on outside. This book would therefore be a good tool for talking about bullying.

There was a part of the story that I didn't like though, which is where it says to do what adults tell you. Whilst I liked the message of obeying rules set by parents and teachers the general "adults" part would have been best avoided. Unfortunately not ALL adults can be trusted. Other than that though, it gave good pointers for being nice and respectful towards others.

I liked that the Grandmother tells Nevaeh she has been, and always will be, her little Princess at the end.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
