The princess in our story has everything princesses need: a flowy gown, glittery shoes, and most importantly, her sparkly crown. Confident in her kingdom, she is ready for her first day away from the castle—until her mom says she can’t wear her crown. Playing with the other kids doesn’t go exactly right, and our little princess thinks if she were just prettier, maybe she would make friends. Her mom gives her wise advice that rings true for all princesses everywhere, no matter how old they may get.
