A Royal Easter Story by Jeanna Young & Jacqueline Johnson, Illustrated by Omar Aranda

About the Book:

It is the most spectacular spring in history. The princesses—Joy, Grace, Faith, Charity, and Hope are busy with preparations for the annual Easter celebration and the castle is alive with activity.Into the kingdom ride five new friends, young knights, who are as spirited as the princesses.

In the new Princess Parables title, A Royal Easter Story, a challenge is presented and the boys and girls decide to race to the neighboring village where the annual Easter celebration and feast will be held. Along the way, the princesses must weather a scary storm and rescue another new friend. But in the end the lesson is clear … trust in the Lord and his love and you can overcome any obstacle.

My Thoughts:

Considering the average little girl wishes to be a princess, the release of "A Royal Easter Story" is very timely.  Based on the story of the good father in The Gospel of Luke, the tale introduces readers to five princess sisters: Joy, Grace, Faith, Charity, and Hope.

This year, the king and his family are responsible for transporting the cross, gifts, and decorations used in celebrating the risen Savior.  Along the way the princesses meet a handful of handsome princes and are challenged to a race.

Eager to win, the girls make great progress, but when they stumble upon a little girl who's been lost and separated from her family, the princesses remember their father's teaching about being of service to others in need.

I won't spoil the outcome, but I will tell you that this book teaches an important lesson that is sorely lacking in our culture, both inside and outside the church.  That's why I'm so thankful to my friends at Zondervan Publishing for my complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Highly recommended, and just in time for Easter 2016!

Happy Reading!
