Ten Big Toes and a Prince's Nose...Review & Giveaway...

I have another hot of the press children's book to share with you...Ten Big Toes and a  Prince's Nose by Nancy Gow.  This one was just released on October 5th and you don't want to miss this book with an important message.

This delightful book is the story of a princess with, ahem, not so lovely feet which send people running in the other direction.  When she meets a prince from a land far away with an, ahem, rather large nose it is a match made in heaven and a lesson to all in love and acceptance.

There is a whole bunch I like about this story....the illustrations (by Stephen Costanza) are absolutely magical, the story is a fun read but what I really, really love is this important message highlighted in the book:

 I am what I am and that's all right with me.
 I don't have to be different, I just have to be.
 I don't want to be somebody else. No sir-ree!
 I am what I am and that's all right with me.


I mean, seriously, can we give our children a more powerful message??  I love this book and it is a real treat to read it to A&W and I know when Baby R gets a bit older I will share this one with her as well.  This book is recommended for the ages of 4-8 which I think is appropriate although younger princess fans might even enjoy it at an earlier age.  You can buy this book now on Amazon...

What do you think about adding some more pictures? I don’t want to offend anyone, page is really nice. But as I’ve heard humans acquire info much more effective when they see certain helpful pictures.
