Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots? by Carmela LaVigna Coyle

Every inquisitive little girl wonders what it is really like to be a genuine princess. At the heart of Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots? lives an energetic, spirited, and contemporary child who has lots of important questions for her mom. Do princesses ride tricycles, climb trees, do chores, or have to eat the crusts of their bread? The mother's voice is timelessly reassuring as she answers her daughter's questions and advises her that being like a princess has to do with what we are on the inside.


Gordon's whimsical paintings in pleasant pastel shades are a good match for the funny text... This is as sweet as a little candy heart. School Library Journal
