    Princess Grace by Mary Hoffman
    Illustrated by Cornelius van Wright and Ying-hwa Hu

    In Princess Grace, Grace has the chance to be a princess in a school parade. But what does a princess do, apart from wearing beautiful clothes and looking pretty? Does she have to be pink and floaty, with a crown? Grace and her friends start finding out about princesses in China, Egypt, the Philippines and Zimbabwe - and on the day of the parade, helped by Ma and Nana, Grace's school has the most interesting float of all.   (Mary Hoffman)





    Parents, here are some really neat activities you can do with your children while discussing Princess Grace.
    Grades Pre-K to 2 - Research real life princesses and princes either from the past or present.  Create costumes
                                    just like the class did in Princess Grace and have a dress up party with some friends or
                                    classmates.


    Grades 3 & 4 -        Research real life princesses and princes either from the past or present.  Create a Slideshow or Power
                                   Point presentation about what they have learned.  If you do not have access to a computer create a
                                   display board using the information that they have learned.

    Grade 5 -               Research real life princesses  and princes either from the past or present.  Write a play based on the
                                  information you have learned.



    Take a look at some of the wonderful work that was completed by our students after reading Princess Grace.
