French Princesses Don’t Dance?

French Princesses Don’t Dance?

Sophie: “My mom taught me how to be a princess.”

Me, surprised to hear it: “Oh? How is that?”

Sophie: “You put on a white veil and a pretty dress then you eat your food.”

Me, curious: “And what do princesses do?”

Sophie: “They dance. But this princess doesn’t dance. She’s speaking French.”

  • We’re thinking about taking our 6 month old to Easter Vigil.  I think he’d sleep too, though I worry about either my husbands or my arms falling off from holding him!

    I was wondering—do you have any book suggestions for Easter?  I loved your list of Advent/Christmas favorites for our kids.

  • Kathy,

    I know what you mean about the arms falling off. Would a sling or baby carrier help? I’ve come to love my sling for the hands-free aspect.

    Easter books are so much tougher than Christmas books. There just aren’t as many. We’ve got a few that we really like: The Tale of Three Trees: A Traditional Folktale by Angela Elwell Hunt and Tim Jonke; Easter by Fiona French; The Easter Story by Brian Wildsmith; and The Donkey and the Golden Light by John and Gill Speirs.

      Here are my reviews with notes about each of them: Lent and Easter books and Some Easter Picture Books.
