The One Year My Princess Devotions by Karen Whiting

The FTC requires a disclosure to advertising in the following post.
Cover: The One Year My Princess DevotionsPrincesses are a big attraction for most girls, especially preschoolers and early readers. The One Year My Princess Devotions is written for early readers and preschoolers. Each devotion sheds light on how the reader is a princess—a daughter of God, the King. The devotions also emphasize how little princesses should
respond to being God’s children. Each devotion includes Royal Words (the Bible verse), Princess Thoughts (a short devotion written for early readers), a Prayer, and a Princess in Action section (an activity related to the devotion).
The devotions are thematic according to the calendar. For example, January features creation and February highlights love.
Little Princesses will look forward to learning more about their King each day.
This book is available through Tyndale House

I was provided with this devotional in exchange for my honest opinion. I am not required to give a positive review.

What I thought:
This book is very attractive for little girls. I liked the hard cover, princesses on each page and the pink and purple colored theme.  I was interested in this for my 6yr old, but it seemed to be for a girl maybe a little bit younger in age. (pre-school) However, I did share it with my granddaughter who is 4 and it seemed very appropriate for her age and level of understanding.
The girls who read this should come to an understanding that they are children of the King, and hence Princesses. They will learn how to act like princesses, talk like princesses, and think like princesses. Each day has a Scripture, Short Devotion, and a Prayer. At the end of the page there is a call to Action - with a task for the Princess to undertake. (Usually something simple -like taking a walk and observing God's creation or other easy project that emphasizes what she learned about God that day.) I would recommend this book for girls ages 3-5 mostly.
