A new princess book is always exciting for our four year olds. In this article, we are featuring our top ten princess books. This list does not include Disney princesses. Though beautiful and loved, Disney princesses are a different story. These books can be a new spin of an old story, or a beautiful retelling of a favorite classic.
Ella Bella Ballerina and Swan Lake by James Mayhew. We enjoyed reading this story about the princess swan again and again, danced to the music, and made Swan Lake art found here: Swan Lake Painting and Hand Print Art.

Cinderella by Sarah L. Thomson. There are many different versions of the Cinderella story. We liked this one for the beautiful water color illustrations. The text is easy to follow with many details from the traditional story. Well, Cinderella's Dad is kind of missing here.
