Recently, I was sent a wonderful children’s book to review called The Rose Princess and the Special Gift by Mike de Vetter. My daughter absolutely fell in love with this book.
The story is about a princess called the Rose Princess, who is given three items by her father the King. As she makes her travels throughout the day, she ends up giving away her gifts to people in need. At the end of the book, she is concerned that her father might be upset with her for giving the gifts away, but her father praises her for making a self sacrifice of helping others. He says, “Many people were blessed today because of your generosity.”
The illustrations in this book by Travis Orams are very detailed and the colors are eye catching. My daughter asked a lot of questions about the pictures. She would say that little girl is crying or that man is wearing a hat.
My daughter really liked it because it was a good story, and also because the King looked like her Daddy and she kept referring to the Rose Princess as herself. It was really cute!
