Publisher's Description

Emma couldn’t wait to go to the King’s birthday party, but what should she bring?

Emma couldn’t wait to go to the King’s birthday party, but what should she bring?

Emma and her little dog Shu-Shu were thrilled to be invited to the King’s birthday party. But what do you get a King for his birthday? Emma and Shu-Shu have no gift, but they bring the Christmas cake they made with Mom and put on their Sunday best as they dash to the King’s carriage.  And of course, Emma couldn’t go anywhere without her beloved Cherry-Bear.  On the way, they have encounters that lead them to bestow their cake, winter-cape, and even Cherry-Bear, on others. Now they’re chilly, rumpled, and empty-handed—what will the King think? Emma frets, but when they finally meet the King at his palace, they discover they gave the King exactly what he wanted.

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.

    The King's Christmas List by Eldon Johnson, illustrated by Bonnie Leick is a children's picture book about a little girl, Emma, and her dog Shu-Shu. In this imaginary tale, Emma and Shu-Shu receive a golden invitation to the King's birthday party. They collect a gift for the King and set out in a horse drawn carriage for the party. Along the way, they encounter some families in need and give away their gifts and treasures to help. At the party, they discover that by helping the families in need, they gave a gift to the King. The story is a great tool for families who want to expand their holiday gift giving into doing more to help others. At the end of the book, resources are provided to generate ideas to help others during the holiday season. While the book focuses on the Christmas season, the concept could be used at any time to teach about reaching out and helping others. The illustrations are very nice and detailed. I found some of the wording to lack a sense of flow, but my children enjoyed having the story read to them repeatedly and looking at the pictures. Disclosure: I received this book free from BookSneeze book review bloggers program, but the opinions expressed are my own (FTC 16 CFR, Part 255).

    The Kings Christmas List is a wonderful story to remind both young and old the true reason for the season. The story unfolds with a special invitation inside of young Emma's mailbox. This invitation is to the King's birthday party. Emma gathers her favorite things to bring to the King but along the way she encounters numerous strangers in need. Emma's giving and unselfish heart leads her to giving away her special possessions. But what she gains is so much better; she gains the heart of the King. Her actions embody the true meaning of Christmas and the reason we celebrates Christ's birthday with presents. Gift giving is not just a holiday obligation, but a matter of the heart that fulfills the King's desire to have each and every one of us be a blessing to others.

    The story is one that is appropriate for children 5 and up. The concept and wording may be difficult for younger children to understand. It is the type of story that can best be used as a tool to encourage discussion after reading it to your children. The pictures are beautiful and imaginative. The story unfolds in a way that holds a child's attention throughout the book. The last pages of the book include website information for different world wide charity organizations that families can consider donating too. This book is a wonderful way to introduce these organizations to school aged children in a way that will lead to a lifestyle of giving.

    This is a sweet story of a little girl, Emma and her dog Shu-Shu. Her daddy builds her a playhouse that becomes a door to a new world, The Kingdom. Then the adventure begins as she receives an invitation from the King for his birthday party. Of course she must bring a gift. She bakes a special Christmas cake and hurries on her way. As she travels to meet the King she encounters a grandma and grandson who are cold and she gives away her coat. She encounters several others on her journey and has opportunity to show compassion. She learns about how giving to others in need from the heart is how we give gifts to God. The book also provides ways for families to give to others this Christmas season.

    My girls very much enjoyed the story, especially my 5 year old daughter. She enjoyed the illustrations which really brought the the story to life.
