Princess Penny Saves the Day
by Heidi Jenkins
My daughter is 8 years old a few months into 2nd grade and she is dyslexic. I was looking for a book that she could read for fun that she could mostly read on her own. She loved the story and asked to read it together and finished it in just a few days. She needed help with a few words in each chapter but read a majority of it on her own and it gave her so much confidence to read an entire story. She’s asking for another book about Princess Penny!
Sweet story about a little princess. It is perfect for young or reluctant readers. I love that this story has varied sentence structure versus all simple sentences like so many early readers have. The illustrations are also excellent!
Size doesn't matter
Such a cute book teaching young (being helpful and speaking up) and old (age/size doesn’t matter and to listen)! Love the Silver Tales series teaching perfect lessons in a great story and beautiful illustrations.
Fun and inspiring
We loved this book about a very determined princess! We also learned about water in the process – bonus!! Chapters are a great length for young readers!
Encouraging for young readers
Princess Penny was a fun adventure to read. It teaches kids that they can solve big problems too.
“I want to help,” said Penny. “Please let me!”
“How could you help?” asked the king. “You are only seven years old”
Watersford is usually a peaceful place, so when trouble arises, Princess Penny wants to help. Though many in the kingdom doubt her abilities, and despite the obstacles in her path, Penny sets off to make things right. Beautifully illustrated, this charming tale reminds readers that sometimes heroes come in unexpected sizes.
