Growing Up With Princess Lizzy: little life lessons
by Gma Mary Adkinson
|How do you handle a situation when you know someone hasn’t told the truth? What do you do when you see a little girl without a coat in the cold of winter? Where do flowers go when they disappear? What do you do when your feet don’t reach the floor? Hi, I’m Gma Mary. Being a mom six times, a grandma 17+ times, and a great- grandma seven times and counting, I’ve encountered these questions and many more. As a parent or grandparent, it can be difficult to find stories that approach life lessons in a kind, thoughtful, and sometimes humorous way. You will find Princess Lizzy to have a simple, open hearted personality as she enjoys the adventures of a lifetime. Her great big smile will steal your heart. Originally created for one of my granddaughters, I was urged to share them with other young people and those young at heart. Here they are…hope you enjoy!
“Princess Lizzy is the child we all want to have, and the adult we all wish we could be. Her adventures are both fun and share great life lessons all at the same time. When you step into Lizzy’s world, you step into a wonderful world where kindness rules. As a young mother and Christian, I want my child to hear the message that Princess Lizzy has for each of us. Everyone is special and everyone deserves to be loved, no matter what.” —Katherine Robinson, young mother, pastor’s wife, and blogger Jenks, OK
”Now that I have young grandchildren, I realize the importance of books that attract a child’s eye with vivid colors while gently portraying life’s lessons. Mary Adkinson effectively takes a child’s curious wanderings and turns them into sweet tales of learning about their daily world. Growing Up With Princess Lizzy is a book I’ll be reading to my grandchildren again and again.” —Lea Hensley, Review Columnist and grandmother Tulsa, OK
“Your stories are just good, at the right vocabulary level, and with life lessons in a very palatable form. Nothing more could be asked.” —Arlie Wood, magazine and newspaper columnist and experienced great-grandfather Midwest City, OK
