Maddy loves anything “princess”, so I was hopeful that this would be a great addition to our library and would meet her requirements for a good “princess” read. “The Princess Twins and the Birthday Party” is all about Princess Abby and Princess Emma who are getting ready for their birthday party. Both girls spend time dressing up, fixing their hair, and preparing a special party for their friends. When one of their friends arrives in a plain dress, they have an opportunity to show kindness from within.
Maddy was enthralled with this book, and loved the story and how exciting the characters were to her. I liked the underlying message of kindness and beauty within that was conveyed through the King’s speech to the princesses and then was emulated between the princesses and their friends.
I would recommend this book not only as a good “I Can Read” level 1 reader, but for those who have little ones like mine who want to grow up to be princesses. Mona Hodgson did a wonderful job writing this story in a way that is easy to understand. I think it’s great for preschool ages.
