Every little girl wants to be a princess, or at least it seems that way to me. For some little girls – like my own tomboyish six-year-old daughter – it was a very short phase, but there are others, who take the whole princess fantasy to whole a new level!
Now, I have nothing against being a princess (there are even times that I wish I were one!), but it’s my hope that all girls would want to be smart, courageous, humorous, strong-willed, kind, determined, ambitious rather than rely on becoming royal.
So for this month’s Kid Lit column I’m focusing on books about princesses, but these aren’t your typical damsels in distress who get “saved” or swept off their feet by a prince. All these gals have lives and agendas of their very own and who know how to make things happen for themselves!
