Princesses and Pumpkins?

Posted by Big Universe on Oct 3, 2011 1:55:09 PM

My daughter has now been in Kindergarten a little over one month. Her favorite things at school are buying her lunch and checking out books from the library (in both cases she gets to pick out just what she wants). After her first trip to the media center at school, she told me that she wanted a Princess book but the teacher did not know where to find the Princess books, so she got to look on the computer with the teacher and find one. My daughter has checked out books 4 times .... and so far, each time has been a Princess Book!

1. The Princess and the Pizza by Mary Jane Auch

2. Princess Penelope by Todd Mack

3. Princess Grace by Mary Hoffman

4. Princess Peepers by Pam Calvert

I am glad the my daughter enjoys books, stories, beautiful illustrations, and ... princesses. Since she enjoys the topic of the books, we read the stories together so many times that eventually she can readthe story to me. I have to keep reminding myself the repeated reading are a good thing ... even about princesses.There are some princess books on Big Universe:

There is even a book for teachers to with a princess as the main character: The Princess and the Mini Unit

As long as my daughter is enjoying books, I can handle the princesses.

Hopefully there will be enough Princess books to keep my daughter interested in books until she finds a new favorite topic. After reading Suzan's blog post about the abundance of pumpkins on Big Universe, I started thinking that perhaps that would be a good new favorite seasonal topic for my daughter.

The Cinderella story connects princesses and pumpkins ...
