The Kings Christmas List

The King's Christmas List
Written by Eldon Johnson Illustrated by Bonnie Leick
ISBN: 978-1-4003-1645-8
Publisher: Thomas Nelson

Emma and her dog Shu Shu are playing in the playhouse daddy built when and amazing event occurs! Emma opens the playhouse door and finds herself in the Kings Kingdom with an invitation to attend his birthday party! Emma brings gifts for the king, but along the way gives them to others in need as she lends a helping hand and shows compassion to others. When Emma arrives at the kings’ party she learns how valuable and treasured her gift of compassion and giving was to the king. The reader learns the reason for the season and the simple lesson of caring for others.

This was an adorable children’s book with a wonderful lesson. The book flowed easily and was very readable as a parent reading to my daughters. The illustrations were wonderful and fit well with the theme of the story. The overall moral of the story was the best part of this book and I would highly recommend it for children of all ages. Everyone needs a reminder of compassion and selflessness sometimes. The book was well received by my two and four year old daughters and left a big impression on my husband and I. I enjoyed the ideas shared in the back of the book on how to help show compassion and giving this holiday season as well as throughout the year.
