I know that fall has only just begun, but it's never too early to start thinking about Christmas and the joy of giving to others! This book teaches children about giving and helping others who are in need.
The story begins with a young girl named Emma and her dog Shu-Shu. They receive a letter inviting them to the King's birthday party, but they aren't sure what to bring. What would be the very best gift for the King? Emma brings along a cake that she made with her mom and a few of her own belongings. On the way to the King's castle she meets a couple families in need. She selflessly gives them everything she had brought along. Emma and Shu-Shu arrive at the castle with nothing to give to Him; However, they are surprised when the King tells everyone His Christmas list. The message in this story is wonderful for young children who are beginning to understand the true spirit of Christmas and what it means to give to others. The last few pages encourages people to donate to organizations such as blood: water mission and World Vision, so that you too can give back.
The illustrations by Bonnie Leick are absolutely beautiful and captures the tone and wonderment of the story. Children will love looking at the pictures as you read it aloud. This is a great book to read the night before Christmas or the day of.
Disclaimer: I am from a book review program and received this book free from the publisher. I would like to note that these thoughts are mine and that I didn't have to leave a positive review.
This is a great story about the true meaning of Christmas. You can tell that the King is actually Jesus and even though the story doesn't talk too much about Christmas, it is a great book for the Christmas season. Although, I'm not completely sure why it's called the Christmas List because it never does talk about a Christmas list. Tobin is a bit too young for this book and the sentences were a bit lengthy, so I paraphrased each page for him and that helped to keep his interest. He really liked the cake and the dog. I'm sure when he is older, he will really appreciate the book then and understand it a lot more. It's a great way to teach your children about the true meaning of Christmas.
We try to emphasis with our children the importance to help those in need, and one of those ways is for each of us to give things to others that may not have what we do. This book is a great resource to help our children see in storybook form, the importance of giving to others, and how much it pleases our Heavenly Father when we put others first. I would recommend this book to anyone with children or grandchildren! It's the perfect giftbook for the upcoming Christmas season.
