Elena and the Secret of Avalor #Giveaway - Sammy Makes Six

Elena and the Secret of Avalor #Giveaway

This is a sponsored post in collaboration with sponsored by Disney-Hyperion, however all opinions are my own.

I'm sure it's no surprise that my little one has grown up with the Disney Princesses, just liker her sisters before her. But Elena of Avalor, the newest Disney Crown Princess has become a fast favorite of Sammy's. Not only is Elena of Avalor the first Latina princess, which was very exciting for all of us, but her values and traits are those that I strive to teach my daughter every day. 

Princess Elena of Avalor Traits To Teach Kids

Responsibility: At a young age Princess Elena of Avalor saves her kingdom and has to learn how to rule as crown princess until she can become queen. In the same way Sammy has the very important role of being auntie to six children, one older and the rest younger than she. That means that she has to make wise choices and always be responsible so she can be a good role model for all of them.

Compassion: One of the biggest lessons that we can teach our kids is to be compassionate like Princess Elena of Avalor. Good leaders must think of others before they think of themselves. Sammy is learning to care about others: stray animals in our town, donating items to the needy and collecting for kids during the holiday season. 

Brave: One of the traits that Sammy most admires about Princess Elena of Avalor is her bravery in the face of adversity. Being such a shy child there are many moments that are difficult for Sammy. But Sammy is learning that all great leaders have moments when they too are scared and that there is nothing wrong with that, you just have to get past the fear with the support of family and friends. 

Caring: Another Princess Elena of Avalor trait that I think is very important is how caring and loving she is of her family & friends. I always tell Sammy that family is the most important thing in our life and that no matter what she might go through in the future either with her sisters or nieces and nephews, they always have to be there for each other. Knowing her the way that I do, I know that she will always be the glue that binds them all together. 

Is your child a super fan of Princess Elena of Avalor too? Now you can give your child the gift of more Elena of Avalor adventures with the Elena and the Secret of Avalor companion picture book for the hit Disney Channel series, Elena of Avalor. If your child loves to read the way that mine does, he/she will love this new book which follows Elena of Avalor on her newest adventure.
