What if all those pretty princesses little girls were obsessed with had some true character. Giving, lifting people up, sweet spirits...those are the qualities I want for my children. A Royal Christmas to Remember by Jeanna Young & Jacqueline Johnson is just the sort of tale to help children think outside of themselves this Christmas.
See the story starts off with the sweet sisters all excited about their pretty decorations and what might be under the tree on Christmas morning. They even boast to their father about needing more storage to hold all the decorations. Then an event where some robbers come along change the course of Christmas Eve and remind the girls what is truly important - Family. This even changes their hearts and they decide to donate their holiday items to the town who lost so much. It is a take off the parable of bigger barns but brought to a place where children can understand. The back of the book has the lesson with bible references to the original story so you can take this book full-circle in learning what the bible says.
I loved the simplicity of the story and how much I know it will relate to young girls. There is something about princesses that enthralls little ones be it the glitter, dresses or castles so having a story where those princesses possess biblical character is really something special.
With the arrival of the most spectacular winter in years and Christmas only a night away, Princesses Joy, Grace, Faith, Charity, and Hope find themselves in the midst of a scene right out of a holiday fairytale in this newest adventure in the Princess Parables series A Royal Christmas to Remember. But then the threat of bandits in the village lead the king away from the castle on Christmas Eve! Suddenly, the bandits come crashing into the castle. Praying to God for courage and safety, the princesses are soon rescued by five brave knights and then do some rescuing themselves. The next day, the princesses go to the village to see how they can be of help to the people, discovering that the true meaning of Christmas is honoring and giving glory for the greatest gift of all.
