P is for Princess: A Royal Alphabet
This book gives a wonderfully sugar-coated overview of princesses, princes, kings, queens, and emperors – both real and imagined. If you are looking for the controversy surrounding many of these royal words, this is not your book.
Because this book was published by Sleeping Bear Press - a publisher known for their companion teaching guides - I thought sure I’d find some activities for this book on their website.
Luckily, I did find a wonderful blog post by Confessions of a Homeschooler that goes right along with this book. I highly recommend you visit! (Tell 'em JEN sent ya.)
Eating my Advice
This book makes me take back my own advice. I said in one of my tangents that you shouldn’t use the name “Aurora” as your princess, thinking about a Disney Princess of that name. But apparently, the princess was given the name by Tchaikovsky, not Disney. So I guess it’s OK to use that name, but my advice to be careful what you name your characters still stands.
But today’s tangent has nothing to do with names. Instead I’m talking about layered text. And if you don't care about that, here's the next installment (please, please, please be there) of THE GREAT ALPHABET DISASTER.
(Sorry, we wish we could tell you what is happening on P's page, but she is pinned in with L M N and O. You may not want to know anyway. A Peck of Penguins resides on P's page.)
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
