About the Book
While her friends and family may not believe in fairies, Geraldine knows, deep down, that she is a VERY fairy princess.

This is the sixth adventure in the adorable, sparkly, sweet Very Fairy Princess series from celebrated children’s book author Julie Andrews (best known for The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins and The Princess Diaries) and her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton.

In this new tale, the end of the school year is here, and Very Fairy Princess Gerry is getting ready to graduate! She always loves a celebration, but can't help but feel a little sad as she empties her cubby, takes down her art projects, and says goodbye to her class pet, Houdini the hamster. She's also a little nervous about leaving Miss Pym... what if her new teacher doesn't let Gerry wear her wings and crown? Change can be hard, even for a fairy princess!

Thankfully, she realizes that new things can bring their own sparkle. A perfectly delightful addition to your child’s bookshelf.

My Take on the Book
This was a well written book about transitions in school. While reading this to my youngest, I realized that the timing was perfect, as there is only about two months left of school for her and then she will be going through a similar transition and I know there will be some trepidation on her behalf. I loved how this book addressed this issue and made it very clear that there is nothing to worry about, and in fact these changes can be a ton of fun too. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a young child getting ready to make the change from one classroom to another as it is a great book with vivid illustrations, and the story was simply adorable. All-in-all, this was a wonderful book that all should read!
