When she is told that her parents are expecting a new addition to the family, the Little Princess immediately announces that she does not want a brother - they are smelly and rough, and they have all the wrong toys. But when her new baby brother arrives, the Little Princess is pleased. After all, there is only room for one Little Princess in the family!

We are getting really fond of the Little Princess and this story does not disappoint.

The Little Princess discovers she's expecting a baby sibling and decides she would rather have a little sister than a brother. The story explores why (namely brothers a smelly and rough and so on) essentially a lot of the stereotypes of little boys and little girls. The grown-ups combat these rationales with some gender-neutral/ common-sense thinking. She ends up having a little brother and is quite happy about it; the story finished with her trying to offload her potty on him.

The illustrations are great; I like that they take up most of the page. We end up skipping the actual text (there's only a line or two per page) and follow the story solely through the pictures - which is a great exercise for language development. My toddlers really enjoy "reading" this independently and examining the illustrations themselves.

If you're looking for a fun story with a vibrant character - look no further; the Little Princess is great!
