This book is the perfect length for young elementary age children, and I think the parable is simple enough for them to easily comprehend. As little Emma arrives at the party, she notices that everyone seems to have forgotten that it is the King's birthday at all. Emma and her pup go to ask the King why no one is celebrating Him, and what she finds out is relevant to us all.
This is a delightful story with a very important message for today's young ones. Illustrated with sweet pictures and set in a magical snowy land filled with talking animals, this would make a perfect Christmas gift for any young child. While the main character is a girl, this is in no way a 'girl's' book, and would be perfect for any child who has started to forget that Christmas is about Jesus.
I plan to wrap up several books that focus on the true meaning of the holiday, and let the kids unwrap them to read on Christmas Eve. This book will be a perfect addition!
I received this book in return for my unbiased review,and I will receive no other compensation.
