My boys turned 6, how did that happen, but it’s okay we found a great book

Ummmm, that title is a little long.

But, I like it.

All week long I’ve been thinking about this book.  I received a copy from Zonderkidz to review, and we’ve already read it about 3 or 4 times.

In the story, it’s Princess Joy’s birthday and she invites all the local prince and princesses to come to her party.  They all say they can’t, so she invites the townspeople and servants.  She spends the week before her party getting party favors ready for her guests.

 Which is where we get to my boys turning six.  See, they've spent the week planning what they want to give their friends, and how to best present the swords..  Princess Joy was putting aside what she originally wanted to focus on her friends.  I don’t think Superman and Batman are that altruistic by a long shot, but they truly have great giving hearts.  And it’s been so much fun watching them plan their party.

The Princess Parables looks to be a very cool series, I’ve received two of them to review, and we’ve loved both of them.  I’m planning a totally different activity for the second book, hence why I’m not talking about it here.  I’m looking forward to finding the rest of the books in this series.  It says a lot for a princess book when my boys enjoy reading it too.

I’m gonna link this up to What My Children are Reading over at Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns.  I’ll hopefully get another post up later today with more books we’ve read or more about the wonderfulness of my boys.  There’s another book that’s been on my mind a lot this week in relation to their birthday, but that one I haven’t actually found a copy of.
