Book Review: "Always Daddy's Princess" by Karen Kingsbury



One of New York Times bestselling author, Karen Kingsbury, writes a heartwarming story about a little girl and her loving father in a beautifully illustrated children's book.  

Book Description: 
Blow the trumpet, sound the horn, Daddy’s princess has been born!  The timeless journey of a daughter and father is poignantly captured in the story of a girl’s growth from childhood to motherhood. Playful, emotive prose, enriched by the whisper of God’s scripture on each beautifully illustrated page, invites girls and dads to see themselves reflected in this keepsake book and to be reminded of the blessings and the bonds between them. Throughout tea parties, soccer games, braces, and boys, a girl is her daddy’s princess every step of the way.

My Review:

I feel silly admitting this but this children's book got me all choked up and teary eyed.  I also got the warm fuzzy feelings as my husband sat down with my daughter and read this sweet story to her.  Our children do grow up to fast and one thing my husband and I have discussed is the important role he has as a father to show our daughter love and how she should be treated.  This book is great for every daddy.  Father's day is fast approaching in June so pick this book up today for your daughter and husband to create a special bond together.  

The book also reminded me of "Love you Forever."  Both parents in the stories share a memory of their child growing up which hits home because my 5 year old is already getting so big.  

My daughter seemed to enjoy her daddy reading her a story but also enjoyed the bright pink and purple colors and all the sparkly pages.  She also liked the rhyming.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. 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! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
