I recently had the opportunity to review the book The Princess Twins and the Tea Party by Mona Hodgson and illustrated by Julie Olson. This is a level 1 I can Read! book which offers young children the opportunity to read on their own.
Generally this book is exactly what you'd expect. Two sisters having a tea party and learning that only God is perfect and their tea party doesn't need to be. I thought it was a sweet read without anything incredibly thought provoking or problematic.
But what I LOVED about this book was that one of the party guests is a young girl of a different race. I learned from a friend who had adopted child of a different ethnicity what a trial this is for her. Any girl book seemed to feature only white children. But this one doesn't. I was looking for this and was so excited to find it.
Booksneeze provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
