GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: THE VERY FAIRY PRINCESS: GRADUATION GIRL! by Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton



ABOUT THE BOOK

While her friends and family may not believe in fairies, Geraldine knows, deep down, that she is a VERY fairy princess.

This is the sixth adventure in the adorable, sparkly, sweet Very Fairy Princess series from celebrated children’s book author Julie Andrews (best known for The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins and The Princess Diaries) and her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton. 

In this new tale, the end of the school year is here, and Very Fairy Princess Gerry is getting ready to graduate! She always loves a celebration, but can't help but feel a little sad as she empties her cubby, takes down her art projects, and says goodbye to her class pet, Houdini the hamster. She's also a little nervous about leaving Miss Pym... what if her new teacher doesn't let Gerry wear her wings and crown? Change can be hard, even for a fairy princess!

Thankfully, she realizes that new things can bring their own sparkle.  A perfectly delightful addition to your child’s bookshelf.

This book is a beautifully and quite adorably illustrated and exceptional story about dealing with change.  In this case, the story is addressing the change of leaving the comfort of one classroom with a beloved teacher and class pet into another unknown classroom due to graduation.  It is a great way to create dialogue with kids on healthy ways to deal with change and new situations and people.  I really enjoyed the story and can't wait to read others in the series 4.5 stars!
