The art will tie to each how-to topic in the book-how to make the best pink cookies, how to wear a tiara, how to earn money at home, how to care for a royal dog, how to be respectful, how to use good manners, how to help Mom, how to follow Jesus, how to act like a princess when things go terribly wrong, and many more.

Scraps of Life Book Club Review: We are posting two different perspectives on this book for you today! One club member, Marilyn, is a mom of 3 boys and the other, Susie, who is a mom of 3 girls!  Enjoy!

(Marilyn) How To Be God's Little Princess by Sheila Walsh is an adorable book in every way!  It even looks adorable with a hardback pink cover and silver print.  This book was written to help Christian little girls understand the manners, etiquette and true beauty truths that every daughter of the King needs to know.  It is chock full of tips for everything from making friends to having tea, fun ideas for crafts and games with friends, and a strong Biblical basis for the advice given.

I like this book so much that I am planning to pass it on to my dear niece and buy more copies for some of the special little girls in my life.  The section called "How to Be Media Wise" should be required reading for every little girl, and the devotions are appropriately written in perfect Sheila Walsh style! 

While I have little boys and won't be using this tip myself, I think that several copies of this book would be the perfect key ingredient for a little girl sleep over.  A terrific book with a terrific message, I would give this one five stars!

(Susie) The first thing that I noticed with this book is the pretty pink & purple cover sporting a shiny, silver tiara!   The cover screams "GIRL" and it sure caught my eye right away.  How To Be God's Little Princess (the letter i is sporting a diamond on the cover): Royal Tips for Manners, Etiquette, and True Beauty, as a mom of 3 girls, this is a book that I WOULD pick up just because it has a beautiful cover.  I don't judge all books by the cover but I have to admit that I do it frequently.  Sometimes, I'm sure that I miss out on a good book when I do this and the author points this out in the book referring to finding friends.  

The princess, pink & tiara theme goes with every chapter of the book.  Here are the chapters:
How to Dress Like a Princess, How to Wear a Tiara, How a Princess perfects her poise, How to be friends Princess style, How to dine with Royal success, How to sparkle like a Princess, How to have a rockin' Royal party, How to be Media wise, How to be a perfectly polite Princess, How to be a Princess at home, How a Princess sports a good attitude and How a Princess knows she needs an inner beauty makeover. 

Each chapter explains in a cute and princess-like way to let young girls know that they are special for a reason (They have a Heavenly Father) and yes they will have ups and downs (hormone mood swings) but that can't separate them from His love.  The Princess has been given Royal Advisors to help her along the way in this world.  Thank you to author, Sheila Walsh for pointing this out.  This is not your typical "It's all about ME" book that is on the market today.  This book isn't all about ME it is all about how you treat yourself and those around you, how you serve your neighbor in a royal way comes back to how you treat yourself. 

As a preteen/teen I ALWAYS loved the magazines that included a quiz! The quiz would tell me what type of person I was or wish that I was.....  Well Ms. Walsh included these type of quizzes throughout the book and are they ever adorable and keeping with the theme of having respect for yourself and others.  The very first quiz is about dressing like a Princess and that includes being modest.  In our home, we call it the 4 B's.  My girls know that they are not to show any Bra, Breast, Back or Belly outside of their royal home and for the most part, inside the home.  Thank you, again, Ms. Walsh for reinforcing this with your book. This chapter also includes fun craft ideas to give you some individual, royal flair.

I  loved the chapter on How to dine with Royal success!  Ms. Walsh touched on all the important areas of hospitality & fellowship with others.  It is done is a fun and cute way that made me laugh as well as say,"Exactly!"  I really think the author was inside of my head when she wrote this book.  There is so much more to be said about this book but you'll have to pick it up and read it for yourself.

My daughters are at the tween/teen/young adult stage and this book goes along with everything we have ever taught them or wanted to teach them but didn't know how.   Every parent of a girl needs to read this book. No, let me take it a little further, every girl born needs to have this "instructional manual"  given to the parents.  Why do I say this? I say this because girls will not learn to be a Royal Princess, daughter of our Heavenly Father, unless they are trained so from birth.  Girls learn from their parents on how they are suppose to act, dress, treat others, respect themselves and more than that and even more importantly  trained to go to Church to receive Christ forgiveness when they fall and sin against themselves and those around them which they will do.  It is by this, they will be Richly blesses with  the Royal Gifts of Christ by the grace of their heavenly Father. 

This book is only $9.99 and will make the most perfect gift, as I said earlier for any parent of a girl.  If you know of a Royal princess of reading age 2nd grade through Tween this book would also make a wonderful gift for any occasion.

I would give this book to my little princess (grandaughter) who is already a big Princess Gigi fan.

This book would be for "my little Princess" Brooke, age 7 1/2 and me. She gave her heart to Christ at the age of five and was baptized on Mother's day 2009. I want her growth in Christ to continue to flourish. She has such a heart for her Heavenly Father and she blows me away with the things that she teaches our family.
