“The Very Fairy Princess: Graduation Girl” is Perfect for My Kindergartener

This post is the opinion of the Experimental Mommy. While a sample was received to facilitate this review, all opinions remain 100% mine.

My favorite part of the day has to be bedtime with my daughters.  It’s a time to slow down and share stories about the day.  Often, my girls will open up about something that is bothering them during our quiet times and ask for help.  My youngest is a Kindergartener and with the school year coming to a close, she is nervous about her upcoming graduation and moving on to 1st grade.  It was fate that I received the new picture book by Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton.

The Very Fairy Princess: Graduation Girl! which was released on April 8th, is the sixth adventure in the series of Very Fairy Princess books.  About the book:

While her friends and family may not believe in fairies, Geraldine knows, deep down, that she is a VERY fairy princess.  In this new tale, the end of the school year is here, and Very Fairy Princess Gerry is getting ready to graduate! She always loves a celebration, but can’t help but feel a little sad as she empties her cubby, takes down her art projects, and says goodbye to her class pet, Houdini the hamster. She’s also a little nervous about leaving Miss Pym… what if her new teacher doesn’t let Gerry wear her wings and crown? Change can be hard, even for a fairy princess! Thankfully, she realizes that new things can bring their own sparkle.

For my daughter, this was a great way to bring up the topic of growing up and nervousness of facing new adventures.  At the end, much like Gerry, she realized that change can be good!  I am sure much more reassurance will be needed as the new school year begins, but the book allowed her to open up about her jitters.
