4 Stars

ABOUT THE BOOK -
With the arrival of the most spectacular winter in years and Christmas only a night away, Princesses Joy, Grace, Faith, Charity, and Hope find themselves in the midst of a scene right out of a holiday fairytale in this newest adventure in the Princess Parables series A Royal Christmas to Remember. But then the threat of bandits in the village lead the king away from the castle on Christmas Eve! Suddenly, the bandits come crashing into the castle. Praying to God for courage and safety, the princesses are soon rescued by five brave knights and then do some rescuing themselves. The next day, the princesses go to the village to see how they can be of help to the people, discovering that the true meaning of Christmas is honoring and giving glory for the greatest gift of all.

MY THOUGHTS -
Really nice story with a great Christian message and a little adventure in there as well! Beautiful hard cover book with sparkles on the cover! I love sparkles! And so do kids LOL. There is very bright colorful pictures.
I liked that this was very original and not the typical Christmas story for children. I really think young girls will love it. I mean what young girl doesn't love Princesses, right?

The one thing I didn't like is that there were some really big "grown-up" words in here that young children wouldn't understand, like splendor, Christmas finery, anticipated, marauders and frivolous. If you have to keep stopping to explain the words (and that's what I do) you kind of loose the story. So that is unfortunate.
But other than that one thing it is a really great book, very nice for Christmas!
