how to be god's little princess review

I received How to Be God's Little Princess for free from  This is a collection of  "Royal Tips for Manners, Etiquette, and True Beauty" by Sheila Walsh.  This book includes scripture, tips, quizes, questions, recipes, and ideas about handling onself in a manner that would be pleasing to God and acceptable in polite society.   It covers everything from how to make a royal wave to internet safety.
At first I thought the book seemed to strip away all individuality and creativity of the girl and pigeon-hole them into cookie cutter like girls.  And it does.  A great deal of the book does take the girl and tell them how to do everything exactly like every other girl, so that there won't be any uniquness. But it also has some good stuff on how to behave when a rural girl gets plopped into class with some warning on what to expect.   It will never be a big seller would be my guess.  But there are some things that would be useful such as what is the polite thing to do when one farts in public. (pretend it never happened)  The whole proper fork thing gets addressed as well. It might be a good book to have around for manners and society questions, but it's never gonna be a classic.
