Sweet Critique: “Sadie, The Paper Crown Princess”

We love books in our household.


I was a huge book nerd in high school {Vince can vouch for that}, and Babydoll absolutely loves reading too.  Vince is a big Stephen King fan.

We have an over-abundance of books here.

Add to that our love for all things pink and sparkly, and well, we’re super-duper in love with Sadie, The Paper Crown Princess.

NOTE:  Sadie, The Paper Crown Princess isn’t actually sparkly, but it definitely should be.  It’s just that cool.


Princesses, duh!

OK, so without being so vague…  The book is abso-freakin-lutely phenomenal!


It’s the perfect marriage of girly, princess-y stuff and do-good-for-others, be-whatever-you-want-when-you-grow-up stuff.

I’ve often had this struggle since having Babydoll:  I love girly things.  She loves girly things.  But there is another side to us as well: playing outside {her}, reading {both of us}, science and math {her}, and other “non-girly” stuff.

Our society often makes it seem as if you have to pick between the two, but as this book points out, you can be a girly girl and have a love for non-girly things.

You can want to be a princess but still have a desire to do for yourself.

Sadie is headed to princess school and while she has great manners and is smart, she doesn’t seem to do well at being a princess in the traditional sense of the word.

Will she be able to get her tiara and become a full-fledged princess?

You’ll have to read to find out!


You do, trust me, you do.
