When we decided our little Gianna would be nicknamed Gigi, we were given a couple of the cutest books as gifts before she was born; they were from Sheila Walsh’s line about Gigi, God’s Little Princess. I loved the fun artwork and the gospel message presented in them.

Now that our Gigi is almost four, she loves “reading” her Gigi books, and naturally is quite taken by the whole princess phenomenon. I love Sheila’s take on princesses because her books area all about how the character Gigi is a princess because she’s a daughter of the King.

While I don’t always like the Gigi character’s representation in the movie adaptations (she’s a little literal about the whole princess thing, and the feather boas and tiaras worn everywhere can be a little over the top), the books are classy and cute with a super sweet message.

I was so excited about Sheila’s newest book, which goes beyond the Gigi books, and is geared towards a slightly older audience, the tweens. How To Be God’s Little Princess is a modern guide book on “manners, etiquette and true beauty,” that takes into consideration all that culture is throwing at our girls at such a young age.

It’s a great tool for preparing them to not only embrace traditional manners and etiquette, but also showing them how to be strong as one of God’s daughters through it all. Sheila weaves in encouraging Bible verses along with her fun and useful how-tos, quizzes, checklists and guides.

Here’s a little more information:

About the book: How to Be God’s Little Princess: Royal Tips of Manners and Etiquette for Girls

What does it take to be a princess? Sheila Walsh has some important answers to share for every little girl. This trendy design features black & white line art and a two-color pink and black interior. The art will tie to each how-to topic in the book-how to make the best pink cookies, how to wear a tiara, how to earn money at home, how to care for a royal dog, how to be respectful, how to use good manners, how to help Mom, how to follow Jesus, how to act like a princess when things go terribly wrong, and many more.

Increasingly, we see tween girls of today embracing the prevalent “anything goes” spirit of our culture. Sheila seeks to combat that spirit and reinforce God’s standard in their lives. She takes a holistic approach by not just focusing on behavior but also addressing the heart.

About Sheila: Sheila Walsh is the creator of the award-winning Gigi, God’s Little Princess® brand which has sold over 1.5 million units. Sheila is also a powerful communicator, Bible teacher, and best-selling author with more than 4 million books sold.
