My daughter and I love reading about the fun adventures in the *Pinkalicious book series by Victoria Kann! We have read quite a few of them and plan to read them all. The suggested age range for this series is 4-8. I have read a couple to my daughter when she was 3 because she LOVES the color pink! There are also I Can Read! books in this series which Big Brother reads to Little Sister - so cute!

One of the books in the series is *Goldilicious which is Pinkalicious' unicorn. It's adorable! Another book from the I Can Read! series that we borrowed from the library is *Pinkalicious: The Royal Tea Party. It's the perfect book for my little princess since she plays tea party almost daily. To go along with the two books, we made a handprint unicorn craft and had a tea party!
About the Books:
Goldilicious is a book about Pinkalicious' pet unicorn. Only she (and sometimes her brother) can see Goldilicious because it is her imaginary friend. She places pink flowers in Goldie's mane, but really they are dropping on the floor making a mess which upset the mom. Instead, they go outside to play in all kinds of imaginary scenes including some with her brother Peter. This book is great for encouraging imaginative play.
Pinkalicious: The Royal Tea Party - This I Can Read Book! was easy for Big Brother to read to his sister. It's great for kindergartners/1st graders depending on their reading level. In this story, Pinkalicious crowns Goldie as Princess Goldilicious. To celebrate, she throws her a royal tea party. Her brother also wants to join and she has him make the tea for everyone. Instead of making it pinkerrific, he makes up his own creations. Pinkalicious is so worried that her guests won't like it.
This book is a big hit with my preschooler since it involves pink, princesses, a tea party, and flowers!
Handprint Unicorn Craft
- gold and pink glitter glue
- white kids paint
- pink construction paper
- tea party stickers (We used Melissa & Doug Sticker Collection - Pink)
Unicorn Craft Instructions:
Have the child paint their hand with white. Make a handprint on a sheet of pink construction paper. The fingers will create the legs and the thumb represents the neck area. Add a white thumbprint just below the thumb for the nose/mouth area. Let dry.
Add gold glitter glue to create a mane and tail. Add on the horn. Use pink glitter glue or paint to draw on hooves and pink flowers in the hair. Use a marker to add an eye, nose, mouth, and ears.
Use stickers to create a tea party! If you don't happen to have any tea party stickers, kids could draw it instead.
