Perfect Princess Picture Books for Every Kind of Princess

Give your favorite princess a great book this Christmas.
on December 19, 2013
 

If any of the little girls on your shopping list are like my 3-year-old, you can't go wrong with a book about princesses. But if you are like me, you don't want to give the little girl in your life just any princess book. You want to give her one that doesn't make princesses out to be simplistic, vapid, or only concerned with grabbing a prince.

These eight books are princess books for every kind of princess.





Princess and the Pizza by Mary Jane Auch


Princess Peepers by Pam Calvert


Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots? by Carmela LaVigna Coyle


Princess Pigsty by Cornelia Funke


The Princess Knight by Cornelia Funke


The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch


Princess in Training by Tammi Sauer


Not All Princesses Dress in Pink by Jane Yolen and Heidi E.Y. Stemple
