Part two of my favorite children’s books are fairy tales. I love fairy tales, the once upon a time and they lived happily ever after. The optimist in me believes in happy endings. 🙂
The Princess and the Kiss by Jennie Bishop- I love this book so much. Not only does it teach about chastity in the context of a fairy tale, the story is well written and pictures are stunning!
The Squire and the Scroll Written by Jennie Bishop, Paintings by Preston McDaniels- This is the boys’ version of The Princess and the Kiss. It’s also a sweet fairy tale “of the rewards of a pure heart”.
The Complete Book of Flower Fairies by Cecily Mary Barker
The Lord of the Rushie River and Flower Fairies of the Summer by Cecily Mary Barker- Cecily Mary Barker’s paintings are amazing. All of the flower fairies have a poem to go with them.
The Egyptian Cinderella by Shirley Climo, Illustrated by Ruth Heller- I love reading Cinderella stories, especially ones from other lands. 🙂
The Twelve Dancing Princesses As tolda by Marianna Meyer, Illustrated by K.Y. Craft-The cover of this book just blows me away. The beauty of the illustrations brings the whole story to life. I love The Twelve Dancing Princesses fairy tale already, but this copy pushes that love over the edge!!
