Book Review: The King's Christmas List

The King's Christmas List
By Eldon Johnson
Published by Thomas Nelson

It is never to early to start reading a beautiful Christmas book like this. I was given the opportunity to review this book for BookSneeze blogger program.

The King's Christmas List is a children's book written by Eldon Johnson and illustrated by Bonnie Leick. It's a about a little girl named Emma and her dog named Shu Shu. Emma and Shu-Shu are invited to a birthday party for the King. Emma decides to bring a cake that her mother and her baked as a present for the king. Emma wears her new Christmas cape and brings her favorite teddy bear name Cherry-Bear, but through a series of events, she reaches the King empty handed. Emma learns the true meaning of Christmas from the King. This Christmas book is great for all ages.

Review: The first time I read it to my children (ages 4 and a half and 3), they loved the beautiful pictures and the characters in the book. They sat very quiet looking at all the pictures and listening to the story as it went on. We have read it a few times since and they still enjoy it just as much as the first time. This is a great book to teach children the true meaning of Christmas and god's gifts. I'm not really religious but really enjoyed reading this book to my children. The pictures in this book are greatly detailed and the colors are very soft. It is illustrated so everyone young or old can enjoy this book and the King's message about Christmas. Helping people in need is the greatest gift to the king!

Where to Buy:  You can find The King's Christmas List at Amazon Canada for $11.51 CAD or at Chapters for $12.12 CAD
