Gerry is very excited – Valentine’s Day is coming (which is a Fairy Princess’ favorite day of the year)! She works her hardest to make the best, sparkliest (is that a word?), Valentines ever for her classmates. She puts her perfect hand-made Valentines in one of her Daddy’s green work folders to keep them safe. But when she gets to school, there is a BIG problem. The folders got switched and her very perfect Valentines are at work with Daddy (how UN-sparkly)! Gerry thinks fast and solves her pro...more

I like the “Very Fairy Princess”, she makes me happy. So, of course getting a copy of this Valentine’s Day edition was worthy of a good squeal and giggle. Gerry is still the “Very Fairy Princess”. And it is time for her to make Valentine’s Day cards. After she makes them, she borrows a folder from her dad so that they won’t get ruined. The next morning she hurries to dress in all her heart clothing. Then she rushes to school, only to find out that she grabbed her dad’s work folder instead of the...more
They often say not to judge a book by its cover, but I think in this case, that would be entirely appropriate! My daughters were absolutely spellbound by the glittery artwork gracing the cover of this beautiful book, and they were equally pleased to dive into this wonderful story. They immediately identified with Gerry and her love of all thins sparkly and glittery, and they especially loved that she sings while she works (something my daughters can definitely relate to). They laughed at the sce...more
This is my first Julie Andrews book, but now I am going to have to read the other ones. Gerry (A girls name if you can believe it) makes specials Valentines day cards for each of her class mates, but ends up bringing her dad work folder instead. What will she do?? I love the Creativity, kindness and fun Gerry brings. She is sincere and I like that! Fun Book!
A very nice Valentine's Day offering, especially for K - 2nd grade kids. The kind of story that kids will relate to: Gerry arrives at school with the wrong folder: the folder with her dad's papers rather than the folder with the valentine's she intended to give to her classmates.

Another IUS student picked this book to read during group time. The girl forgets her V-Day cards for her classmates, instead she tells each of them individually how much and why she likes them. Perfect book to read on V-day to a kindergarten class.

I love these books. While they are in someways just fluff I love how the princess is so confident and tries to make everyone else find their sparkle. I just think that is important for any child or adult

What a delight to meet Julie Andrews tonight! She was so pleasant, did not rush everyone along, and held a little conversation with my daughter....who was completely star struck! She was absolutely lovely!
