A Little Princess Story: I Want to Win

This book is about a little girl, who is referred to as a little princess. Which I assume because she is so spoilt. The little girl wants to win everything, she wants to win so bad that she either chats her way to winning or people just let her win. I really enjoyed reading this book as a young girl, because the main character reminded me allot of myself at that age. The funniest part in the story is on sports day when the little princess partakes in a race.

I loved this book because it introduces the concept of “not always winning a prize” throughout the book it talks about a little princess you tries her hardest to win at everything, but it turns out their is always someone who is a-little better than her and wins, no matter how hard she tries!
I would use this book to introduce the idea of personally accomplishments! That it’s okay to not always be good at everything, but finding what your g

This is a quick read. It addresses how it might be easy to win things at home, if people let you, but out in the real world you have to try your hardest. Sometimes trying one's hardest is not enough.

She's not a brat in this one and tries really hard - great message

I am pretty sure Tony Ross personally knows my kid and all her ... complexities.
It's a decent book for little ones.
I'm guessing this is a behavior book, trying to show not top be spoiled and that you shouldn't get your own way because you want to. That sometimes others will be better than you, but that you can still try hard and that's a good thing. At least, that what I got from the book. It wasn't fabulous, but I think it serves its purpose.

I enjoyed reading the two poems. :-)

I love the little princess books, but mainly because of the funny, but quirky pictures, videos and I can hear Julian Clairy reciting them in my head, and which adds a special touch! They are a bit short, but very sweet all in all. I also enjoyed the poetry!

My kids love this book. I was disheartened that in the story the science and math prizes are won by boy characters, while the the poetry and art prizes are won by girl characters.

A good message book, that sends a nice message but sacrifices story.

Made me smile (all the ways the little princess tries to cheat to win)...and then the way everyone (including her) wins something fairly in the end...
