Glitterbelle is YOUR Modern Day Princess (Book Set Review and GIVEAWAY!!! THINK Valentine's Day!)

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received these books, free of charge, from Parragon Book Buddies Blogger Program, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about them.

Are your kids feeling too old for Sophia?
Too TIRED of Elsa and Anna (yeah I know probably NOT gonna happen, but I know YOU are!)

Then Parragon has a new Princess for your daughter!


Glitterbelle is not your normal fairy tale princess!

Glitterbelle is you modern princess- part tom boy, part all GLITTER princess! 
She is smart, indepependent, loves her parents (the King and Queen), her dog Bob, riding her scooter, climbing trees and spending time with her BFFs, Dazzalina and Angel!

Hmmm....that reminds me of someone.....

Yup, just like Glitterbelle, she would happily borrow Dazzalina's magic wand and make all her clothes sparkle like a gazillion stars and maker dog invisible, so it could go to school with her!

She is creative and messy, loves popcorn and sparkly sneakers.

Yup, she and Glitterbelle, could be separated at birth!

The new series for girls contains 4 new books, which we were able to check out:

Glitterbelle: The Sparkliest Princess Ever!

  This hardback book introduces Glitterbelle- a glittery, sparkly, EXTRAORDINARY princess. But she has one not-so-sparkly, very ordinary problem… she will not eat her peas! When the queen reminds her that every princess in the family should LOVE peas because of that famous one that was hidden under the mattresses, Glitterbelle worries that she isn't a true princess at all. How can her friends and family convince her that she really is the sparkliest princess ever? A beautiful picture book with gorgeous collage-style art to admire.

This book is perfect for 1-3rd graders- it has all the color and glitter they love, a princess they can relate too, and a reading level perfect for them to read by themselves, but to not be 'babyish'/ Perfect for some quiet reading, or sharing with friends!

Glitterbelle: Sparkle with Creativity

Glitterbelle and her two best friends are hosting a slumber party at the palace: everyone is going to be a princess for the night! Read the story, make your own tiara, and add doodles, designs, and color as you go along. Get involved and get creative in this gorgeous fill-in book. With a cute mini tin notepad for extra creativity!

Every 2st-3rd grader seems to have a SERIOUS crafting gene these days, don't they? We've been calling Miss Grace 'Mini Martha' for years, as she is SO intense when it comes to crafting (I swear my grandmother's uber-crafting, pick up anything, gene has skipped 2 generations and landed with her). She was instantly enchanted with this book- make a tiara? HELLO! I had a hard time getting her toput it down so we could take some pictures!

Course sharing my Glitterbelle Maccaroons seemed to be JUST the thing to pull her away from her Glitterbelle land of enchantment, for a few minutes....

The life of a princess can be SO hard! Da Princess said she liked this art print the best. Perhaps because her devious sweet side is showing? HMMMMMM
