The King's Christmas List

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.
