PreS-Gr 2–Princess Truly is a little girl who loves adventures, big and small. She visits the science museum with her brother Ty, solves the mystery of a “missing snack,” and dreams of flying in space. Princess Truly always has fun, especially with her pug, Sir Noodles, as her loyal companion. Simple language on each page makes this a perfect story for newly independent readers, or a simple read-aloud in a primary classroom setting. Rauscher’s whimsical artwork complements the text perfectly. From the bright purple tutu that she wears throughout to her rocket boots that emit rainbows, Princess Truly finds joy in each day, and the illustrations capture her infectious, carefree demeanor with ease. Back matter includes a step-by-step guide for drawing a spaceship, as well as discussion questions to keep the conversation going.
VERDICT This delightful book features a relatable and inquisitive little girl who many readers—especially those who love science—will be able to identify with.
