Over the next several weeks many students across the country will be graduating. It could be a college graduation, high school graduation, middle school graduation, elementary graduation (or “stepping up” ceremony) or even a Kindergarten graduation.
If you happen to have to have a young girl in your life (daughter, granddaughter, niece…) who loves fairies and princesses and happens to be graduating soon, I have an adorable book that she might enjoy. It’s called The Very Fairy Princess: Graduation Girl! Its the newest book in The Very Fairy Princess series.
The book, and the series, is written by none other than Julie Andrews and her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton.
While her friends and family may not believe in fairies, Geraldine knows, deep down, that she is a VERY fairy princess.
This is the sixth adventure in the adorable, sparkly, sweet Very Fairy Princess series from celebrated children’s book author Julie Andrews (best known for The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins and The Princess Diaries) and her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton.
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. A perfectly delightful addition to your child’s bookshelf.
I haven’t read the book but it sounds delightful. I’ve seen a few illustrations from the book too and it looks like an adorable story.
I never knew that Julie Andrews was a children’s author. She’s actually written several books.
