I have been given the opportunity to do some reviews on some books from a few different publishers. Some of them do not quite fit into the focus I have for Living Infuzion, but obviously have some good information. Here are some of my perspectives on some pretty good books! Enjoy!

Princess Stories By Carolyn Larson

As the father of a young girl that is growing up loving the Disney princesses, reading Princess Stories: Real Bible Stories of God’s Princesses was a thrill. Carolyn Larson develops this concept: God is the King of all of Heaven and Earth.  The bible says that God if our father.  Each young woman is God’s daughter.  The daughter of a king is a Princess.  Then the book goes through chronologically to examine some of the main and not so main women in the Bible.  Some are very well known, like Eve, Sarah or Mary the mother of Jesus.  Some are lesser known like Naaman’s  servant or Hulda, a prophetess in Josiah’s time. 

Each Princess is titled with a memorable attribute that is linked to their name.  There is a short poem with each chapter, and the princess is illustrated beautifully by Sergey Eliseev.  Each story from the Bible is paraphrased from the perspective of the Princess.  Each story also has a key verse from the Bible to read or even memorize, and there are a few questions with each story that would be perfect to talk through right before bed.

The final chapter is about the most special princess of all, the young princess reading the book.  The chapter shows how the King of the universe sees her, and loves her.  It completes the concept of the book.

I was very pleased to review this complimentary copy provided by Tyndale Blog Network, and i was free to review it as I saw fit.
