I Am Really A Princess is written by Carol Diggory Shields and illustrated by Paul Meisel and was published in 1993. The story is told as if the main character is a princess and her “real parents”, the King and Queen, would be very upset by the way she was being treated.

I remember this being one of my favorite books as child. It has a good message for children about appreciating what you have in life. However, the story is also very cute and has great illustrations. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a gift for a little girl in his or her life.

I used this for my 3-5 year old creative drama class, they loved thinking of the chores that they would love to shirk and dictate what foods they would order from the royal chef etc. It satisfied their princess-mania in a creative way as well.

Great first lines of this book. "I am really a princess. And when my true parents, the king and queen, find out how I have been treated around here, they are going to be very upset." ;)

This was a cute book. There are some great vocabulary words. You could prompt the children to write about who they "really" are.

Carol Diggory Shields was inspired to write SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE DINOSAUR STOMP after "being called a Nagosaurus by my five-year-old," she admits. "I started playing with the idea of partying dinosaurs who were scientifically accurate (more or less), and somehow in the prehistoric ooze of my brain, SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE DINOSAUR STOMP took shape." Her rocking prehistoric party proved a hit with ...more
