Book Review: The King's Christmas List


I recently reviewed this adorable children's book: The King's Christmas List.  I was looking for something child friendly and suitable for my two nephews to read and in this book exceeded my expectations in every way. Eldon Johnson has written a beautiful Christmas story that I believe not only teaches the Christmas spirit but also the special gift of giving and sharing. It utilizes adorable child Emma and her dog, Shu Shu to illustrate the true meaning of Christmas as they make their way to the King's party and offer their aid to many others along the way.  It brings forth the concept that often, helping others is the greatest gift of all. This is a wonderful lesson for people of all ages and I think its wonderful for children to pick this trait up as they are little. 

Now, the book is a tad long so I'm not sure if younger kids would be able to read it or sit still for it. It may be a good bedtime story for the younger ones or a great book for children who have learnt to read or have just started reading. Any way, it would make for a good learning experience as well as family time together during a joyous season.

To conclude, I think this would be a great choice as a Christmas present for the kids and my nephews are going to be enjoying a great story about Christmas.


I received this book for free from the publisher through the Booksneeze.com book reviews bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions expressed are MY OWN.
