One of the first Orthodox moms to get this book, B.B., wrote to us:
"We love this book (and My Warrior Saints)!"
"If you are thinking, I only have boys, why would I want a Queens and Princesses book? Let me say you need it! My eight-year-old son loves his copy; the text is so well written. The pictures are beautiful. And it even comes with a CD for those times when they want someone to read to them (even though they can read for themselves). He got so excited when he turned to the end of the book to see that there would be a volume 2!"

I haven't looked into the book much yet, but what I have read I really like. It's many small, personable stories, with beautiful artwork, and highlights the Queens and Princesses from among our Saints. My 4 year old is now into princesses, and wanted a princess book for Christmas. She loves all the books from Potamitis publishing, and especially enjoys listening to the audiobooks in the car. I think that she will love this book, even though it's not the princess book she was thinking of.
