Book Review: God's Little Princess Devotional Bible

Learning to read is an important milestone. To celebrate this milestone with my daughter I decided to get her a Bible/Bible storybook of some kind that she could read on her own.

As I started shopping I realized that an actual Bible seemed a little advanced for her (maybe a year from now we will make that purchase), and none of the bible story books I was looking at seemed any different from what we already had. I was beginning to give up on my “idea” when I discovered Sheila Walsh’s God’s Little Princess Devotional Bible.

As I started reading through this Devotional Bible I got excited. It was perfect. Each devotional starts out with a page of actual scripture followed by an age-appropriate devotional. So many of the topics hit on lessons and character traits I want my daughter to pick up like serving others, compassion, true beauty and forgiveness.

I read through this book before I gave it to my daughter. As I was finishing up she came in and wanted me to read part of it to her. Every day since she has asked to read from the “princess” book. I think that means it’s a hit!

I would highly recommend God’s Little Princess Devotional Bible. I am looking forward to reading it with my daughter as well as watching her discover the Bible’s truths as she reads it on her own.

Thanks for the review! I've seen this book and wondered if it is a good one. Now I'm excited to get it and save it for Ella in a few years!

Meg, Thank you so much. I am planning to get this book for Riley for her birthday. I had seen it a few years ago when she was too young but you gave me the reminder. I think I would have forgotten about it. Geege
