Princess Nancie Gets Dressed by Leela Hope
Goodreads Rating: 3 stars
Age Group: 3 to 8
Cute little story. There were a few typos in it, also didn’t format correctly for me for my Kindle. I think that the more appropriate age range would be 3 to 5 as Nancie is 4 years old. I do not really see an 8 year old appreciating the story, at least this story the same way a 3 to 5 year old would. From what I can see, there are multiple Princess Nancie books, so perhaps the older range would like those, but since this is the book I read, it is all I have to go off of.
This story is about a 4 year old little girl named Nancie who is allowed to dress herself for the day’s adventures. It tells of the struggles she goes through to get dressed and how her mother encourages her to keep going and not give up. Her mother does however make her change into something different. I do think that dampens a child’s creativity, so that lost a star for me. I know that if you let children dress themselves, some children would pick out the most insanely wildest things, but I think that is the experience of it all. That is the point and purpose.
Still an overall cute story, more for a target audience of preschool/kindergarten age range. I work around young kids a lot, so it is nice to have something kid appropriate to read if I need it. Leela Hope’s books on Amazon are fairly inexpensive. I found this one free for Prime, most are also free for Kindle Unlimited. However, I did see that the paperback version was about $9, which I feel is a bit pricey.
