The Stubborn Princess by J.B Stockings

What happens when a princess tires of the upkeep of her long curls and stubbornly declares a hair care holiday? Anyone with curly hair knows the answer to that question--a disaster!
Mistaking her knotted hair for a nest, a large bird lays her eggs and sets into motions an unexpected turn of events as the princess is flown far away. Getting back home will require that she focus her stubborn streak in a new direction, and getting back to normal will require she truly see herself for what she has become.

My Thoughts:

The Stubborn Princess is a cute children’s story. It reminds me of those ‘I can read’ reading level books I used to read quite a lot when I was a kid. The book teaches an important lesson. Even though it’s not a bad thing to be stubborn some times, eventually you have to admit that others are right. The book also teaches that it’s important to know how to ask others for help. I thought it was cute how the book rhymed. When I was a child I used to love rhyming books. The illustrations were well drawn. They helped to convey the story to the readers. My favorite illustration was of the princess when she has the long hair that looks good and walks by two boys that are sword fighting. The boys stop what they are doing to stare at her. This was a great children’s book. I recommend it for children just learning to read. The words aren’t too difficult and parents can help them if they get stuck. 

I give The Stubborn Princess: 5/5.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
