    Summary: This is NOT your average princess! This active princess plays soccer, does yoga, falls on the ice, and scrapes her knobby knees. This charming story, by the author of the runaway hit Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots?, helps children see that it's okay to fall down and scrape their knees when trying something new. It's the trying and the fun that count! Through belly-flops and missed baskets, our princess discovers that doing your best is all that really matters—even when your little brother is "When I grow up can I be sporty like you? You can do anything you set your mind to."

    This is a fun and humorous romp through a day with a brother and a sister. They are outside, playing games, swimming at the pool, skating at an ice rink, even doing yoga indoors. I love the rhythmic and rhyming narrative and the depictions of two very active children. It also offers a strong message of encouragement, that "You can do anything you set your mind to."

    This was just another "meh" book. I have a hard time getting behind these books because of their titles. Only one part actually was about scraping her knees. It should have been called something like "Princesses play with their little brothers". That's what the book was actually about...

    I liked this one better than the hiking title...

    This is one of the worse picture books I have seen. Not only is the font on the front cover atrocious, but the text inside didn't even make sense to me. The pictures were so-so. Moving on . . .

    Fun rhyming book with a little boy wanting to be just like his older sister.

    A little girl pretends to be a princess. This rhyming tale is part of series and is "saccharine sweet," but will definitely appeal to fans of princess stories.

    I saw this today and bought it as soon as I read it. Too often (certainly for myself this is more true than I'd like) there is a reflexive dislike of femininity and the expression of it. Many feminist parents desperately try to keep their daughters from going through a princess phase. But femininity isn't the problem! It's in fact the demonization of it and the lack of respect for those who embrace it that is. So this book does a good job of showing a kid who identifies as a princess, and as relatively enjoying of childhood femininity, but who is looked up to by her younger brother, and who still engages in fun things. She is good at some things, bad at others, and willing to fail. I think this book will help create a better world with less misogyny. Get it for your (presumably) boy identified child, get it for your (presumably) girl identified child. No matter who reads it, it'll be for the best.

    Far to often, little girls are categorized as either tomboys or "girly girls." This book shows young girls that they do not have to fit into a preordained category. This book shows young girls that they can simultaneously be a princess and a tomboy. This is also an important read for young boys because it shows them that "playing like a girl" is not something that girls should be ashamed of. In addition to breaking down gender stereotypes, this book also shows children the importance of grit. The protagonist continues to try even after she fails. Ultimately, this is a great book for children because it invalidates gender stereotypes and shows the importance of trying again until they succeed.

    Not bad... These books show "princesses" doing all kinds of things, and I love that the little brother wants to be "sporty" like his big sister when he grows up. I'm just not a fan of the whole princess thing to begin with, and the colors are very gender-segregated (she's always wearing pink and purple, he's in yellows and blues). Nice enough book, but it doesn't make my list of princess books to recommend.

    This book is adorably written for young children to enjoy. Yes girls do play soccer, do yoga, fall and scrape there knees and even ice skate or help to shoot a hoop. The illustrations are lovely and make the story even more enjoyable. Girls can do anything they put there minds to and as a bonus the author has included a pink "special" ribbon for your own Princess.Great way to teach young girls not to be afraid and try things that they think are more for boys.

    This princess is not your average princess. She's sporty and loves to be active. Her brother participates in these activities with her and questions her on how well she can do these different sports and other activities. This story was kind of dull and did not keep my attention very well. I would suggest reading this one to a very young crowd. The story did have a moral to it though: "Win or lose, princesses rule!"

    This sister is a great role model to her little brother. She is a sporty little princess that is not afraid to try new things. Among her activities is playing soccer, riding bicycles, skating, ice skating,and doing yoga. A little scrape won't stop her. Her brother wants to be just like her when he grows up. Read to find out what her brother dreams of accomplishing one day.

    This book a cute book that girls can relate to. The illustrations are fun to look at too. The speaker's response to everything is funny so I like to have the kids who can't read yet guess what she will say next.

    Can't say I love the series, but if your child is into "princess culture," then, by all means...The author has some very clever rhyming verse, with a plucky main character.

    This series is great for big sisters and for the girl who is an active princess. My niece loves them and I recommend for any little girl.

    I'm not sure about this one. I like the idea of it but it somehow just did not sit right with me. Because I cannot explain why that is, I split the difference and gave three stars.

    The illustrations are cute, as are the words. It seems overly cute and a little too precious. The rhymes are off in places, but for the princess-loving picture book crowd, this might just be fine.
