The King's Christmas List by Eldon Johnson
Children and parents will be reminded of the true meaning of Christmas, and that the greatest gifts we can offer to the Savior are gifts to the least of his brothers and sisters (based on Matthew 25:40). Families will be able to go online and be directed to notable charities to give their own gift to the King.
Just in time for Christmas, The King's Christmas List is a delightful book about a little girl named Emma and her dog Shu-Shu. They are on their way to a Christmas party for the King, and they are eager to bring gifts for Him. On their journey, they come across some other children in great need, and Emma doesn't hesitate to share whatever she has with these children. She is sad when she arrives at the party without a gift for the King, but she soon finds out that she has already given the perfect gift, just by sharing her heart with others.
This book reminds us all of the importance of taking care of our fellow man. It is a great lesson for children of all ages as to the true meaning of Christmas. At the end of the book there are suggested options that help children (and adults) to share with those less fortunate, in the true Christmas holiday spirit.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of The King's Christmas List from Book Sneeze, in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for my thoughts.
