Princess Stories by Carolyn Larson and Illustrator Sergey Eliseev has become my daughters’ (ages 5 and 8) favorite book to end their day with. My husband or I will read a chapter or two before we tuck our girls into bed. We talk about the story using the discussion questions provided, reminding the girls that these princesses were real people from history, and learn the memory verse.
Each chapter focuses on one Bible “princess”, some of them are Eve,Sarah. Naomi, Ruth, Hannah, Abigail, Esther, Elizabeth, Mary, and Priscilla. Lists the Bible passage that the story is based on, a short story, Bible memory verse, and discussion questions. They are the perfect length to read at bedtime, and a wonderful way to end our day.
My daughters say “We liiiiike the book!”
About the Book:
Princess Stories is the big sister to popular board book My Princess Bible. Princess Stories, appropriate for girls ages 4 to 8, is a collection of first-person narrative stories about 29 women in the Bible—and the 30th story is about the reader, who is God's princess too.
In each four-page story, the reader gets a rhyming verse about the princess (addressed to "Mirror, mirror on the wall"), a first-person story of the featured Bible woman and the special quality her life reflects, a Bible verse from another passage of Scripture that summarizes/relates to the character trait, and Princess Ponderings—questions that help girls and their parents discuss the stories and relate the lessons to life.
Through this book, girls will learn more in-depth stories of women of the Bible and how to apply Scripture to their own lives.
