***** Review *****
“You think just because we’re princesses all we want to do is marry you?”
I couldn’t resist – that line made me laugh!
Girls in pretty dresses and tiaras aren’t just out for marriage. Especially these three girls!
Kinney, Oceana and Sammie are regular girls out for adventure when they stumble upon a mysterious silver bag. They receive tiaras and glittery dresses.
Best of all, they each receive their very own super power!
The girls use their powers to help a fallen and injured prince, but they must work together to get him to safety.
The girls realize they have some incredibly amazing abilities, but they also know that they’re new super powers come with responsibility.
A great book for teaching young ones about the differences they may see between themselves and others at daycare or school, and about being helpful, kind and humble.
