A special book bound in spiritual love

REVIEW: His Little Princess by Sheri Rose
Shepherd [FIVE STARS]

I have two “Little Princesses” in my life—my two nieces—and it would be a joy to read this book to them each day.

The book is unique in that it is a devotion and prayer book for young girls, something often not seen. But being a “big Princess” myself, I also found the wisdom and prayers it contained encouraging and uplifting. The book is arranged with a Letter from the King (Holy God) one page and on the opposite page a prayer for the Princess(your little one). The devotion topics range from respect, beauty, courage, character, thankfulness, to Jesus our Savior.

My favorite thing about the book is that each letter and prayer is based on Scripture. This is the bind that I consider most important. For example the Letter from the King entitled “My Beautiful Creation,” is based on Nehemiah 9:6, “You alone are the LORD, Creator of the heavens and all the stars, Creator of the earth and those who live on it, Creator of the ocean and all its creatures. You are the source of life, praised by the stars that fill the heavens.” How magnificent! Shepherd takes the Bible’s already glorious words and truths and puts them in a form that young girls can grasp.
Another thing that I like about the book is the “Little Princess” prayer that goes with each letter. This book teaches girls not only to be thankful for all God has done for them in reading the Letter from the King, but it also teaches them how to pray and offer up thanksgiving for all God has done for them. And I like how each prayer ends: “In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”
This devotional book would be a treasure for any mother, father, grandparent, uncle, or aunt to read to the “Little Princesses” in their lives. Not only will the Princesses be blessed, but they will, too.

*I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
