Book Review: The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch
When I was pregnant with my little one, I had a “book” shower. Luckily in my life, I have always been surrounded by independent, brilliant, and kind women. I had never heard of The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch before that day, and honestly, I am so thankful that my friend gave me this story.
It is an awesome adventure that teaches children about self-confidence, problem-solving, quick thinking, tenacity, and most of all the value of one’s own self-worth. Rarely, do I find a book that has all of these wonderful life lessons rolled up into one.
We join our heroine, Elizabeth, on a quest to save her soon to be prince-charming as he was kidnapped by the dragon. Unfortunately, she must do this wearing only a brown paper bag, as the dragon had burned up all of her other belongings.
I believe that this is a great story for children to truly understand that looks can be deceiving, and if they are true to themselves and know their own personal worth, they can stand strong on their own two feet!
