King and King was written by Linda de Haan and Stern Nijland in 2000. This is a wonderful book that teaches diversity in the classroom. It is about a prince being forced to find a princess to marry and after looking at many princesses, he falls in love with another prince. This book has not won any awards, but I still highly recommend for a classroom read aloud!

He is on the hunt to find the perfect queen, but none of them seem to meet his expectations, until one of the contestants brothers shows up with her. When the King sees the brother, he immediately understand why he could not find the right Queen. It was because he wanted a King by his side. After they get married and live happily ever after.

King and King is by Linda De Haan is a story about a prince trying to find someone to marry. His mother the queen wants him to find a princess. Many princesses show up to the castle and he isnt interested until there is a prince. The prince marries the other prince and they become king and king. This is a book i would read to my classroom and give a chance to talk about family dynamics and bring more diverse books into my classroom.

This book was published in 1980, and is a humorous take on a fairytale. The story follows a princess and a dragon, and the princess saves the prince from a burning fire. The prince is incredibly rude to the princess, and she decides not to marry him. I will definitely use this book in my classroom!
