    " 42 months - this was a cute book and then when we watched the Disney Sleeping Beauty I recognized the a similar story line when the fairies decide to switch up who makes the cake, the dress etc. an everything goes wrong until at last they switch jobs again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 7/9/2013

    " Good message, and girls will love it. Illustrations are very dense and the story does not flow very well and is sometimes ambiguous. "

    " We are the best at doing the things we love best and are passionate about, we can't be good at EVERYTHING because princesses are not perfect. Great message in a cute book about a baker, gardener, and builder princesses. My daughter loves it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 The Library Lady | 2/18/2013

    " It's "Princesses Are Not Perfect" because it is the sequel to "Princesses Are Not Quitters". And each of these books gets in a message without slamming it home Berenstain Bear style! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 10/7/2012

    " Fun, girly artwork and a cute story about three princesses - a baker, gardener, and engineer - switching places for the day. Chaos ensues, adorabubs are had by all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kymberly | 9/14/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 6/11/2012

    " Oh my goodness, I love the floofy-over-the-top art in this book! (I really want an insanely enormous princess dress now.) And, I love these princesses who love doing things for themselves. What a wonderful and funny story! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cristina | 5/28/2012

    " A pretty standard storyline, good illustrations. I wish the princesses didn't all look exactly alike except the color of their hair--and very stereotypical depictions of princesses. But that might just be me. "
