Have I mentioned a friend of mine, the fabulous Amanda Evans, wrote a book? That's right. I'm practically a celebrity just by knowing her. Anywho, her book is being released next week, and so I want to tell you just a few of the million reasons you should buy it :)
For those of you taking a look at the word "princess" and thinking you've had your fill of princess stories, know that it's not that kind of book. Well, it does contain a princess, and there may be a happy ending, but this, my friends, is a princess story with heart. Sure, Sadie is an adorable gal, but her true beauty is inside - a message I surely want to pass along to little A.
In fact, just last week, I attended a book launch party for Sadie: The Paper Crown Princess, where I was lucky enough to be privy to a reading by Mrs. Evans herself. It's no secret that I spend the bulk of my time amongst children and - naturally - children's books, and even I was impressed by the beauty of the story and the message that it passes along to a world that increasingly needs to hear it.
The story itself is plenty capable of holding its own, but when you add in the fabulous illustrations, you've got a home run. Seriously ladies, if you have a little lady (or fella) in your life, you'd be crazy not to snag a copy of Sadie for them! There are quite a few little gals in my life that can expect one :)
