How does a young princess prove herself worthy to wear a royal crown when she's more passionate about exploring nature? Tiara, the youngest princess in the royal family of the Kingdom of Fruitful, is the only child yet to wear a crown. The crowns of her six older siblings sparkle with a special gem they earned by a test of character. Now, as the last royal heir, Tiara must demonstrate a virtue she’d rather not even think about.

But will she pay attention to these encounters? Tiara and the Crown of Virtues is a must read for middle grade students, teachers, and parents. It will stimulate discussion about what it means to be virtuous.
