I love getting new books to read to the kids. The latest book we added to our collection was The Princess Parables A Royal Easter Story by Jeanna Young and Jacqueline Johnson. The book is illustrated by Omar Aranda. My daughter loves Princess so she was excited to sit down tonight and read this before bedtime. The book has 32 pages of beautiful illustrations and suggested for ages 4-8.
Joy, Grace, Faith, Charity, and Hope are busy with the preparations for the annual Easter celebration, held in a neighboring village. The journey is made more exciting when the girls decide to race their new friends, the five young knights. Along the way, the princesses meet challenges that show their trust in God and kindness of heart.
The princesses in this book are different from other princess out there. They aren’t about finding their prince, true love or dancing at balls. The princess were in a race against the knights to see who could get to the Easter festival first. While they were on their way they ran into a lost little girl in the woods. They didn’t think twice about what to do. They knew they had to be selfless like the Lord and instead of finishing the race they helped save this little girl and find her mother. After this they all huddled together and said a prayer asking God for courage and wisdom in helping this little girl find her mother. This was my absolute favorite part! It reminds us that whenever we need help we just need to take a moment and say a prayer. I love the characters in this story, as you can tell by their names they have really great qualities about them. These are princesses that I wouldn’t mind my daughter dreaming about becoming. The book is so beautifully illustrated and so bright and colorful. Not only did Chloe enjoy the book but I enjoyed reading it to her.
You can pick up A Royal Easter Story on Amazon in Hardcover or Kindle format.
