A Royal Christmas to Remember: by Jeanna Young and Jacqueline Johnson

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 fairy-tale 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.

The book A Royal Christmas to Remember is a beautiful hardback children's book with stunning illustrations and glittery highlights on the cover.  The book tells the story of the five Princesses Faith, Hope, Charity, Joy, and Grace and how they feel they need more storage for all of their Christmas decorations.  The princesses want their Christmas to be perfect and in the process forget the true meaning of Christmas.  After bandits attempt to steal their Christmas presents and decorations the princesses have an "Aha Moment" about the true meaning of Christmas.  The book is targeted for children four to eight years old.  

I was so excited to have the privilege of reviewing A Royal Christmas to Remember.  I met one of the authors, Jeanne Young, at the Cincinnati Homeschool convention with her sweet daughters.  My daughters were so taken with the princess dolls and books that she brought.  I was thrilled that the stories were highly interesting to my daughters and taught Bible stories and morals.  I was not let down with A Royal Christmas to Remember.

Young readers will be drawn in by the beautiful illustrations and high quality of the book which make it enjoyable to read.  I enjoyed the Princess Journal section in the back where the princesses share a Bible verse and how their hearts were changed.  I highly recommend this book.
