Puppy is no where to be found after he is missing during teatime. The two princesses become worried and start searching everywhere for him. After hearing Puppy's helpless bark from the dark, scary basement, Abby must confront her fear of the dark by trusting God and asking for courage to rescue her beloved puppy friend.
I have a 4 year old aspiring princess so this story was very fun for her. She is not ready for "reading" yet but she was very cute as she "read" and was point to the words on the page. The book was very good timing as we will be bringing our new puppy home at the end of May. I love that the story does bring back to a serious issue for many kids, being scared of the dark. The other night I was walking up the stairs and the lights were off and my daughter said, "Mom we don't have to be scared because Jesus is with us." My heart melted and I agreed with her! :)
About The Princess Twins Play in the Garden:
One princess sits out of all the fun activities through the day because she is afraid of getting her dress dirty. With a little encouragement and a nudge from the other kids, the princess learns to embrace God's little gifts: a lovely day, ladybugs, and even some mud.
My 4 year old is 100% girly girl, she wears a dress every day!!! My daughter has never been to cautious of getting dirty though, we do a lot of crafts and play outside and since she is always in a dress she just assumes mom can get it clean later. I think my daughter was excited to see that the princess finally let go and went and had fun!
