Reading with Laya: Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots

Book: Do Princesses wear Hiking Boots
Author: Carmela LaVigna Coyle
Illustrator: Mike Gordon and Carl Gordon
Age: 3 to 6

"Do princesses wear hiking boots" is a fun book to read to little girls with a new take on the whole princess concept. It is about a little curious girl asking her mom a series of questions about princesses. Do they ride trikes? Do they climb trees? etc etc.. And the mom's responses are reassuring that being a princesses is not only about wearing a pretty gown with a tiara and some fancy jewels but it is about who you are inside. This book is a joy for little girls to read.. The lines are short and have a catchy rhyming pattern. The illustrations are wonderful and they love everything about the book. For moms too, this is a fantastic book. We love the message that every little girl is a princess in her own way!

We need books like this that emphasize what's on the inside.

This is an adorable book. :-) We read it at the library a few weeks and my daughter enjoyed it.
