We are a huge family of book lovers in our house! So when I was asked to do this giveaway for the Very Fairy Princess collection! I was more than happy to jump at the chance!
I was lucky enough to be sent one of the books from the collection. We got the “The Very Fairy Princess Graduation Girl” book and we absolutely love it. Not just my two girls, but I thought it was a really sweet book that actually had a lot of meaning for us. My girls recently switched schools and aren’t having the easiest time adjusting, and are still a bit iffy about school. So although they aren’t graduating – a lot of the story really applied in our situation and we’ve read it quite a few times since getting it!
Kyla even likes reading it herself, and has asked me to get her the whole collection for her Birthday in October!
The book is extremely well written, both Kyla and I can read it, and she didn’t have to struggle with any of the words. She is a bit behind with her reading but read this book with ease. The writing is a good size, and the pictures are amazingly illustrated.
Ava is in grade 1 and also read the book with ease. She was able to also sound out words, but look at the photos if she needed any assistance and was able to figure it out. The pictures also kept the girls focus on the pages and not wandering while we were reading, this was a HUGE plus for us!

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!
