I love children's books. Maybe it's the pictures, maybe it's the easy reading or maybe it's because children's books seem to have a lesson within a story. My favorite children's book is written by Angela Elwell Hunt and is entitled The True Princess. This book also has great illustrations by Diana Magnuson. The story is actually a parable. The little girl in the story is a princess but through hardships and life lessons she learns the meaning of serving others and becoming a true princess. This isn't just a "girly" book it's a great story for boys too. I know because I've read it to my young son and he enjoys the story and understands the parable. If you get a chance, check it out at the library or order it as a gift from Amazon.
