So, you want to be a princess? And, you like sports, building things, and science? NO PROBLEM! Through fun illustrations and rhyming text, Jane Yolen assures girls that just because you don’t wear pink doesn’t mean you have to give up your crown.

Some princesses love mud, power tools, or messy food!

For the princess that loves to do it all, in a sparkly crown.
Empowering for all the little ladies to do be all they can while honouring their inner princess.

I enjoyed this :) I like how the Princesses in the book can do anything they want (build a tree house, play soccer) and still wear their crowns and get dirty.

Enjoyed this book with my daughter. She loved it because it was all about princesses. I loved it because it taught her to look beyond stereotypes.

Both my 2- and 4-year old enjoyed this title quite a bit. I don't mind princess-play, but I try to strike a gender-neutral balance in our household as well. In this book, "princesses" play sports, escape from towers, and get dirty bringing in the harvest--all while wearing sparkly crowns.

My three-year-old practically wore this one out, we read it so many times. She's way too fond of pink, so I wanted to show her there was more to life. She loved the rhymes, AND that the girls could wear their sparkly crowns even when they were doing seriously un-princess-y things.
