"A Royal Easter Story" by Jeanna Young and Jacqueline Johnson
Princesses Joy, Grace, Faith, Charity and Hope are busy preparing for the Easter celebration in the next village. The girls pack up all their best dishes and supplies for the Easter celebration and head out. Along the way, they even race their good friends from a neighboring kingdom! The Princesses meet a few obstacles on their way, and they must learn to place their trust in God.
At first glance, this book looks adorable. The book sleeve is bright and cheery, and full of glitter that all little girls are sure to love! But as for the story, I felt it was lacking a little bit. I expected there to be quite a bit more talk about Easter and the Resurrection and a little less of the Princesses. Although, I appreciated the main idea of this book, I wish it had gone a little bit more in depth. My 4 year old loved the book, but she is capable of understanding quite a bit at this age, so I wish that it had touched a little bit more on the actual story of Easter. For that reason, I can only rate this book as 3 stars. The illustrations were beautiful and the pages had just the right amount of words for little readers, but it just wasn't a favorite of mine.
