Reviewed by Jessyca Garcia for Readers' Favorite My daughter really enjoyed the book Can a Princess Be a Firefighter? by Carole P. Roman. In the book, two sisters ask their father if a girl can still be a princess while working in numerous professions. Naturally, he reassures them that they can be anything they want to be and still be a princess! There was a lot to like about this book! I loved the idea of Can a Princess Be a Firefighter? I chose to read it with my six-year-old daughter because she wants to be a “fighterfire”. While she is not too much of a princess, she does think that only boys can do certain jobs. In this book, Roman showed her that girls can do any job too, and it also gave her more career options to think about. She had never heard of a cowpoke before, but has since been considering it as something she would enjoy doing. Roman made all the lines in the book rhyme, which made it even more fun for my daughter to read. The illustrations are colorful and girly at the same time. The abundance of the color pink is what first drew my daughter to want to read this book. I loved the book just because it inspires girls that they can be anything they want to be and still be girly. This is exactly the kind of book that I want my daughter reading. I think this book would be an excellent one to read at school when it is career day.
