From Reidhead Randomness:
Real scripture princesses from all scriptures (BOM, NT, OT, D&C) come to life as you read their story as told from their perspective.  The stories of these 16 women are told in easy to read (think bed time stories) chapters.  (Each of the 16 women have their own chapter).  The end of each story shows the scripture references.  The stories show real women from the scriptures, doing real acts of greatness!  Sometimes its hard to find good role models for girls from the scriptures, because the women are less prominently featured, so this book does a great job at highlighting these important women and all they did.  The author did a great amount of research on the clothing and surroundings to make the drawings accurate...while still leaving a little room for artistic interpretation.

This was a great book for my daughters!  I loved it, they loved it!  It is a new favorite story book!

I received  a copy in order to write my review, however all opinions expressed are my own.
