Indulge Your Inner Princess!
This week is National Princess Week! So here's your opportunity to indulge in all sorts of princessy glitter and bling and to perform good deeds--noblesse oblige.
Julie Andrews, the spokesperson for National Princess Week, advises princesses on "30 Ways to Celebrate National Princess Week," click here.
We have scads of princess books and videos in our children's room collection, including these ones:
Disney Princesses: Beauty Shines from Within. [J DVD PRI]
Casey, Jo. The Princess Encyclopedia. [J 791.4375 CAS]
Posner-Sanchez, Andrea. The Princess Word Book. [BB DIS]
Weinberg, Jennifer. What Is a Princess? [E WEI]
Not everyone is on the National Princess Week bandwagon, and for very good reasons. Click here to learn more. However, it took years and years before girls were freely allowed to revel in things that grabbed their imaginations, like tiaras and fairies, while boys were always encouraged in their pursuits of vehicles and monsters. Of course, corporations have found that girls' interests can be just as profitable, and now that the corporate push is on, people have begun to backpedal on the girly-girl issue.
Here's a little bit of royal advice: moderation in everything, please, and supply unlimited opportunities for all!
