Fiction

Two sweet girls ask their father if they can still be a princess no matter what else they decide to be. As he looks down at them he reassures them that no matter what they decide to be, a dancer, reporter, doctor, or construction worker, they have many choices. He reminds them that they can always change their mind and their choices are limitless. As long as they are happy, they can be whatever they want to be and wear their wings too.

This is a sweet story that I know our daughter would have loved when she was little. She loved being a princess and reading princess stories. This one takes a realistic approach reminding our young girls that their dreams are limitless and any job could use a little princess added to it.

I was a bit disappointed in the illustrations for this book. The colors and designs are muted and almost have a blurry tone to it. I liked all the illustrations of the girls in different work uniforms but didn’t feel like the images jumped off the pages.

Overall, this is a great story for young princess lovers that sends a positive message along with being silly.

ROCKET-BYE

Fiction

This lovely bedtime story takes two young boys on an adventure in space before bedtime. As they ride atop a rocket ship, they travel past the moon and planets while viewing constellations along the way. But, every trip across the galaxy ends up in their bed ready to sleep.

The author uses a rhyming scheme to travel through the pages and the rhymes work well without any awkward words. You can easily teach your child more about the planets and constellations by looking for them in the night sky before going to bed.

In this book, the muted illustrations work nicely to bring a calming feel to the story. But, the artists style of illustrations appears a bit blurry on the pages.

If you have a space-loving boy or are looking for a new addition to your bedtime stories, ROCKET-BYE will take them on an adventure at every bedtime.
