Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfectly delightful tale for girls They often say not to judge a book by its cover, but I think in this case, that would be entirely appropriate! My daughters were absolutely spellbound by the glittery artwork gracing the cover of this beautiful book, and they were equally pleased to dive into this wonderful story. They immediately identified with Gerry and her love of all thins sparkly and glittery, and they especially loved that she sings while she works (something my daughters can definitely relate to). They laughed at the scene where Gerry is emptying her dresser looking for just the right thing, leaving a mess on the floor - after all, how many times have they, the little princesses, forgotten to tidy their own rooms? And they absolutely cheered Gerry on as she spoke encouraging words to every person in her class, and then got to celebrate the perfect Valentine's Day with her class and someone special who just happened to pop by - her Daddy. The Very Fairy Princess Follows Her Heart is delightful through and through, containing a positive message about being a good friend and sharing encouraging words (even for a boy in her class who she doesn't get along with!), accompanied by wonderful pictures and artwork. Although the book contains a Valentine's theme, it's appropriate for every day of the year - and I have no doubt I'll be reading this book with my children many a time between now and next Valentine's Day! I highly recommend this children's book and award it 5 out of 5 stars.

Praise for The Very Fairy Princess:
"[Geraldine] lets kids know it''s not necessary to be prim and proper to be a ''real'' princess; princesses who just want to have fun will find plenty of that here." - Booklist

"The mother-daughter team successfully demonstrates an understanding of that magical stage of childhood in which determination, desire and dreams can transform reality." - Kirkus

"Geraldine radiates noblesse oblige, heedless energy, and a sense of destiny-she''s Eloise crossed with Hillary Clinton." - PW
