Princess of Power - (Disney Girls #10) Reviews
I bought this to lend to the girls in my tae kwon do class because most of the other tae kwon do books I've found for my little lending library feature boys. But I won't give this to my students because the author thinks TKD is a form of karate and that it's from Japan, so the book uses Japanese terms for teacher, uniform, school, and forms instead of the proper Korean terms. Plus, despite being featured on the cover, martial arts barely appear at all after the first few pages; the "power" referered to by the title is magical "power," not the power that develops from the discipline, self-confidence, and self-control kids learn through studying a martial art. The only reason I gave this 2 stars instead of 1 is that the book portrays solid friendships among girls, thankfully free of the petty competition, back-biting, and bullying often portrayed as "normal" in girls' friendships.
I really liked this book. I love Disney, and I own all these books except for the three newest ones. This book is as good as the others, and it's one book I will read over and over again:-)
