review 1: Can a princess play baseball or splash in a mud puddle? Can she wear overalls and plant a garden? Of course she can. A princess can wear and do what she wants. Bestselling author, Jane Yolen and Heidi Stemple, challenge the stereotype that a princess is always dressed in a pink ball gown. The princesses in this book are diverse in their interests and attire. Don't worry though. They might be brave, strong, and fearless princesses, but they are still sporting their sparkly crowns. Brief text is combined with illustrations that present princesses as more ordinary people. For every parent who has tried to talk their daughter into a pair of pants, this book is for you.

... moreching television in the home, keeping Disney pretty much out of the house, and not yet sending our toddler to childcare/pre-school... she still somehow has started getting interested in princesses. (Probably because of a girl at the library story time who always wears Disney princess stuff). So, I was excited to have a book with a more positive message about Princesses--that they can wear sparkly crowns, but still engage in all of the fun activities that my daughter already seems to like. That they don't all just sit around looking pretty waiting for some man to give meaning to their lives. This book has fun rhyming text, playful illustrations, and a girl-positive message. And my daughter loves it, too! less

Would be a nice addition to a princess-themed program for preschoolers. Rhyming and repetition.
O Jane Yolen! Do you ever write anything poorly?
good concept, but could have been much better.
We loved the sparkly crown!
