Sigal Adler has done a marvelous job in bring together all the elements her book, “The Spoiled Princess” contains.
To begin, being an author myself, I know how hard it is to write any story, especially when it’s being written for a young child; and to be able to write it in rhyme not only adds to the difficulty but it adds an attention-holding reading experience for the child.
When a book is written, where one of the premises for writing it deals with desiring the young reader to learn a specific lesson, there are two qualities that the authors must keep in mind for their endeavor to succeed. The first is that they do not hit over the child with the lesson being presented, the second is not talking down to child. If these concepts are not there the child will turn off to the lesson being presented. Ms. Adler’s writing succeeds in accomplishing these two concepts, and the young girls reading this book will learn the lesson the storyline has.
The illustrations are a wonderful addition which adds to the visualization of the story for its readers. Not only does the child reading this learn to be grateful for what they’ve got and not to be over demanding from their parents, some adults who happen to pick this book up and read it might learn to stop spoiling their children by giving them everything they want, instead of what they actually need which is the simply giving them the love they want.
For teaching a vital lesson to its young girl readers as well as some of their parents, I’m giving Ms. Adler 5 STARS for her endeavor here.
The only problem for books like these is their limited audience of only girls. I would love to see this author writing a similar story for the young boy readers out there, who need to be taught the same lesson.
