Sibylle von Olfers (1881-1916) uses a blend of natural observation and simple design that critics have compared to the works of Kate Greenaway and Elsa Beskow. It tells the lovely story of the day in the life of a princess, surrounded by the nature that cares for her. My 6-year-old daughter was instantly enchanted and decided she even wanted her bedroom to look like scenes from the story. This is the type of princess story I love for her to hear, full of wonder and missing the ubiquitous licensed characters and product tie-ins that normally swarm around our children.

My children (6 and 4) have enjoyed all Sibylle's stories that we've read so far. This one is very sweet and gentle. It is nice not to have any wicked witches or evil stepmothers causing trouble for a change; simple and sweet.

This book is simple but beautiful. It tells the lovely story of the day in the life of a princess, surrounded by the nature that cares for her. My 6-year-old daughter was instantly enchanted and decided she even wanted her bedroom to look like scenes from the story. This is the type of princess story I love for her to hear, full of wonder and missing the ubiquitous licensed characters and product tie-ins that normally swarm around our children. Highly recommended for children this age.

My kiddo lives this story and I love reading it to him; what more can a parent ask for? Beautiful illustrations and a sweet tale, this one will go in our batch to be saved in my little's Hope Chest.

Both the illustrations and content.

I love all the of the "children" in Sibylle Von Olfers's stories and this one is no exception. Inspires creative play in children and gives, oddly, a more realistic depiction of a princess to my children.

I bought this book for my 2 year old for Christmas. It has become a favorite. I love the simple, yet fantastical illustrations. The story is a good length for the shortened attention spans of toddlers. I have other books by Olfer, but this one is best suited for younger ones.
This is a nice book with pretty pictures and a nice story, but not age appropriate for a 6 year old. I would say, buy it for kids with short attention spans or age 4 and under.
