Book review: Princess Truly in My Magical, Sparkling Curls, by Kelly Greenawalt, illustrated by Amariah Rauscher

Greenawalt, Kelly. Princess Truly in My Magical, Sparkling Curls. Illustrated by Amariah Rauscher. (Princess Truly series, book 2). Orchard Books, 2018. $16.99 ISBN 9781338167191. Unpaged. Ages 3-5. P7Q9

I loved this book starring an imaginative little girl whose magical curls transport her to exciting adventures. This is a good book for young children that encourages the use of imagination. The book also celebrates the importance of self-esteem. The text is rhyming poetry, and while sometimes choppy, children will enjoy the verses. The engaging illustrations are creative and fun.

VERDICT: I really liked this book. I can see this book being used both in a group setting, as it lends itself to a great read-a-loud, and as a nice addition to a home collection.
