"The Princess Twins" Book Review

I know I posted a review about a month ago about "The Princess Twins."  Well, I have 2 more "The Princess Twins" I CAN READ series books that I reviewed.  

The first one is "The Princess Twins and the Birthday Party" and the second is "The Princess Twins and the Tea Party" both came out in May 2012.  






About the story: "The Princess Twins and the Birthday Party"
Princess Emma and Princess Abby put on their fancy dresses and tiaras to celebrate their birthdays.  Too bad when a party guest arrives and feels less than beautiful in her plain dress, she leaves the castle.    Can the Princess twins help their friend and remember where true beauty lies?  


My Review:
My daughter is still in her fun princess stage.  She absolutely loves anything and everything princess related.  These books are fun for her because they are princess stories but I love them because there is always a Biblical lesson to be learned.  :)  I think this lesson hit home with my daughter.  She loves to wear a dress every day and she relates a dress to beauty instead of the inside and this book is a great way to start reminding her that it does not matter what clothes we wear!


About the Story: "The Princess Twins and the Tea Party"
The Princess Twins try to host a tea party.  Princess Emma wants it to be perfect  but the dog and the napkins are creating chaos.  Can Princess Abby convince Emma that only God is perfect? 


My Review:
It is frustrating to plan and plan and then the event not go as you had wanted, but at the same time you learn.  It is always a great reminder and lesson to know that we are human and make mistakes because God is the only perfect one.  My daughter enjoyed this story and wanted to act it since she loves having tea parties.  :)

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
