A Beautiful Story!

The Birthday Princess is a beautiful story! As an urban school librarian, I fell in love with this book. There are so many themes that immediately jumped out to me. Family, self-pride, the value of a village, father- daughter relationships are just a few. The illustrations are perfect and tell of story of its own. I can’t wait to share this with my students!
