The Rose Princess and the Special Gift - Review

The Rose Princess and the Special Gift
Written by: Mike De Vetter
Illustrated by: Travis Orams
Published in 2010
Published by Fish Pond, a division of Deep River Books

Book Description:
found on the back of the book

"Not far from here lives The Rose Princess in a kingdom ruled by her father the King. One morning she awakes to find a splendid package at the end of her bed full of gifts and a card from her father encouraging her to use the gifts wisely. Unaware of what lies ahead, the princess sets out on a journey of learning and adventure where she meets several people who are in need. Suddenly she realizes that the gifts she has received can help the others, and that she has to make a choice...keep the gifts to herself, or help others by giving the gifts away. 
In The Rose Princess and the Special Gift, children embrace the heart of generosity and begin to make conscious decisions to share and give people who are in need. They learn that they have the ability to lead and influence simply by being a positive example."

I received the Rose Princess and the Special Gift book to review. The first thing that popped out at me was the illustration. Travis Orams did a fantastic job illustrating. The bright colors really draw you in. It's cartoony enough that even my youngest who is 22 months sat down through the entire book and my 3 year old had me read it three times in a row. I love this book. My girls loved this book. Mike De Vetter is a great children's author. There were a few words that were a bit steep for my little ones but I think it's good to change and helps expand their vocabulary. The message it conveys is to share and help others that are in need.
Great book!
