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.
