Review/Giveaway: The Princess and the Three Knights

Esmé here, reviewing my very own book! Plus, I have an extra one that Mommy says I have to share. I am one-two years old (29 months).

This book is called The Princess and the Three Knights. It is written by Karen Kingsbury, who has written LOTS of books, and is illustrated by Gabrielle Grimard. It's a Christian picture book targeted for ages 4-7. See Zonderkidz to purchase or for more information

Here's the publisher's synopsis: "The King challenges three knights to prove their love for his daughter. True love wins in Karen Kingsbury’s heart-warming tale of inner beauty and devotion."

What is the book about? A princess!

Is that a picture of a castle? It is not a castle. It is the princess's house!

Tell me about the princess. She has looonngg hair. She is sad.

Now she is happy! She is making the children happy, too! Her dress is pretty!

These men want to marry her. What are they doing? Are they racing? They are riding horses! Neigh!

How many knights are competing to marry her? One-two-three!

Who do you think should marry her? I like THAT one! (points to the one in red)

Why? I like his coat!

Shouldn't she marry this one instead? (points to the one with the right answer who ends up marrying the princess) The one who shows he really loves her? OK.

Do you like this book?
Yeah!


Mommy's Notes


Karen Kingsbury is a favorite author of mine, so I was excited to have the chance to review a children's book by her. I wasn't disappointed - this book is gorgeous!

It's a sweet fairy tale, destined to be a classic, with great illustrations and a 1 Corinthians 13 twist. If you have a princess-loving child, this is a perfect way to introduce the concept of love.
