Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In bygone days, diminutive princesses just posed and primped; but young princesses today refuse to rest on pedestals. The diminutive heroine of Do Princesses Scrape Their Knees? teaches young readers that girls can play soccer, do yoga, and learn to ice-skate without losing even a smidgen of their royal femininity.
Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Not only do princesses scrape their knees, this particular one contorts into yoga positions, does a less-than-graceful dive, and spins on the ice only to land flat on her delicate bottom. This rambunctious little girl and her tagalong brother bounce, dance, and whirl through the energetic text. By her words and actions, she clearly shows that princesses may stumble and fall but they get right back up again. Whimsical illustrations catch the beat of the rhyming text and each of them has the same frenetic look of the little girl. The message that trying is what really counts is obvious and the Day-Glo "Princesses Rule" ribbon attached at the end is a tacky gimmick. This does speak to the child not gifted in sports and for that reason could be a supplemental purchase.

    Fun and encouraging words

    I loved this book because it speaks to the heart of every princess, sporty or not. The message is clear: have fun while trying and you will always end up a winner. In this book even the little brother learns that when he brings his whole heart to his 'sport' he feels like a winner, big time! I recommend this book for all boys and girls because the focus is on building character, self confidence and the joy factor. Excellent.

    Another great Princess story...

    As usual, Carmela has created an endearing story about the 'Princess' who has exciting adventures. Do Princesses Scrape Their Knees? is catchy book with cute rhymes and adorable pictures. For kids, sometimes that's the most entertaining part of a book. The princess in the story is nice to her brother and encourages him to try new things while sometimes demonstrating and falling herself. The moral of the story is good. Keep trying and don't worry if you fail. Be a good sport about it. I liked this story almost as much as Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots? This is probably my favorite author of story books for little girls.
