ting task this time of year to keep young children focused on the true reason we celebrate Christmas. The decorations and pretty packages under the tree just add to the excitement of the season, but sometimes in all the hype leading up to the blessed day we lose focus. That's just where the five princesses find themselves. The situation concerns their father the king but before he can do something about it a crisis in the kingdom arises and he must go and deal with it. Not surprising but that very crisis is what brings about realization that their priorities have been misplaced. My granddaughters and I have been enjoying these lovely Princess Parables books. Through the use of a delightful cast of characters the writers bring to light an important portion of Scripture in a parable type of format. This time the reference is from Luke 12:15-21. In this portion of Scripture Jesus is reminding His followers to be on guard against all types of greed. My favorite part of the book is the ending where 'The Princesses' Journal' is located. It reminds the reader that Christmas is a time of giving. We are celebrating the fact that God was willing to give His one and only Son to be an atonement for us. The authors remind us that "Christmas is a time of giving and reflecting Jesus to others." What a great reminder for our children (and ourselves) that it is wonderful to celebrate this season, but we must always keep in perspective Who we are celebrating. I highly recommend this and all of the Princess Parables books to those with young girls. They have a wonderful message packaged in all the wonder of being a princess. I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

The holiday season is upon us. It seems that each year we are getting further and further away from it’s true meaning. We have forgotten about the most precious gift that has been given to us – Jesus Christ. Instead our thoughts are often focused on the decorations, parties and Santa Claus. “A Royal Christmas to Remember” reminds us what is really important.   “A Royal Christmas to Remember” is the story of Princesses Joy, Grace, Faith, Charity and Hope as they discover the true meaning of Christmas. The castle is decorated in all it’s Christmas finery and the girls are bubbling with excitement over the gifts that they will receive Christmas morning.  Their excitement is cut short when a group of bandits storm the castle. The girls pray to God for courage and safety. Will the girls escape? Will they discover the true meaning of Christmas? “A Royal Christmas to Remember” is a reminder to us all about what is really important at Christmas time.  Just like the Princesses’ in the story we often get caught up in the “Holiday Extras”. Parents seem to be focused on picking out the perfect gift for their loved one and children are focused on Santa and the gifts he brings.  It is all to easy to lose focus on the greatest gift of all…Jesus Christ. The book is based on Luke 12: 15-21, the story of the Rick Young Ruler. The end of the book is “The Princesses’ Journal” and it explains the connection between the story of the Princesses’ and the Bible story. The girls were focused on the here and now…what Christmas would bring them. They had forgotten about God and his greatest gift to us, His only Son. It wasn’t until bandits attacked their castle and home that they remembered what is most important. The story reminds us that not only do we need to tell others about God’s love for us, but that we also need to show it through our actions. Our friends and families need to see it reflected in how we live. The book is geared toward girls between the ages of 4 through 8. Younger children will enjoy having this book read aloud to them, while older girls will enjoy reading it on their own. The illustrations are full colour and add a wonderful visual element to the story. “A Royal Christmas to Remember” is a fun story to share with your little girl during the Christmas season. It would make a wonderful gift to open on Christmas Eve and share at bedtime.   Disclosure: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Girls are going to love this glittery cover and the five princesses named Joy, Grace, Faith, Charity and Hope, as they celebrate the holiday season and learn about how to share the love of Christ. My daughter is nine and we had fun reading this together. Five princesses are focused on decorating for Christmas with a big bang! They go all out, thinking only about themselves, getting more decorations, and what presents they will be receiving; until a band of marauders invades the town the night before Christmas and steals most of the Christmas cheer. The girls learn to share their Christmas joy with others less fortunate and in the end find true happiness that comes from helping others. This is a cute story, with beautiful illustrations and pictures. There are several young gentlemen who save the princesses when the thieves show up at the castle while the king is away. They are rewarded with the honor of knighthood. Back at the castle, after re-decorating the town and sharing their gifts the King reads the Christmas Story from their mother's Bible and they sing their mother's favorite Christmas song, Joy to the World, together. It ends as a Christmas they will never forget. The message is encouraging us to think of others during the Christmas season. The end demonstrates the true joy of the season, the joy of giving! There are various references to certain stories in Scripture in a subtle way, such as the parable of the man who says to himself, "What shall I do? I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones...", as well as, the story of the Rich Young Ruler. My daughter said she would have liked to see a little more drama with the bad guys. It didn't last long enough for her. The boys came in and saved the day too soon. This probably due to the fact that she is quite the tomboy having grown up in a household surrounded by boys, so I am sure she could have defeated those bad guys all by herself! I received a complimentary copy of this book from BookLook to review. All opinions are my own, and I was not asked to review positively!

I received this book from the author/publisher for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own. This entire series is an excellent one to own and in regards to the latest release, A Royal Christmas to Remember, one that would make any young girl happy on Christmas morning. The five princesses exercise modeling Christ in their heritage as “daughters of the King” on Christmas morning. This book shows prayer, strong family values, and unique personalities as we follow each princess in their desires to do what is right. The story is enjoyable with some healthy suspense for youngsters and also demonstrates respectable attitudes from the young men present. The illustrations definitely add to the story’s quality with their sharpness and with how realistic they look. Overall, I am happy to rate A Royal Christmas to Remember 5 out of 5 stars and recommend to families that have young princesses always ready to read a new book!

I had never heard of the "Princess Parables" series before I received an ARC review from the publisher last week. The cover art is really colorful and features glitter on the princesses' dresses. All the illustrations are well-done with bright colors. All the princesses look like they came from a Disney animated movie. The story is really cute, and I'm sure young readers can relate to the young princesses, who are excited about Christmas Day. While the princesses have been raised to be nice to everyone, they are hogging all their decorations and gifts for themselves. Well, that is until an incident occurs that helps them have a change of heart. Overall, A Royal Christmas to Remember is an adorable Christmas story that young readers (especially girls) will enjoy reading around this holiday season. I'm going to give the book to my little cousin at Thanksgiving.
