Book Review: The King's Christmas List

The King’s Christmas List by Eldon Johnson has immediately become one of my top 3 Christmas books. This sweet story is about a girl and her dog getting an invitation to a party with the King. On their way to the party they start giving away the very things that they prepared in order to be with the king. Later they discover that those gifts to others were really gifts to the King himself.

The importance and joy of giving is a strong and clear theme throughout the story. Loving the King by loving others is not an easy choice. It requires sacrifice which can be very challenging. But the delight it brings the King is obvious. In the book, the girl and her dog make it to the party seemingly empty-handed. But what they discover once they are there, the King’s love and delight, is almost too much to carry.

This story is a good reminder of the true spirit of Christmas. It is also filled with beautiful illustrations that keep little readers engaged. I love this story and highly recommend this book!
This book was sent to me by Tommy Nelson Publishing. All opinions are my own. I was not paid to write this review.
