The Story of Christmas~ Book Review

I was given the opportunity to review "The Story of Christmas", written by Gwen Ellis and Steve Smallman. This book is divided into nine short stories, starting with the birth of John and ending with Jesus as an adult.
It is a colorful retelling of the birth of Jesus. The language was age appropriate for younger children, but I thought it was strange that the word manger was omitted more than once, considering it's used so much during Christmas through songs, television, and books.

The illustrations are simple and bright and the questions on each page helps to promote a higher level of thinking . There is a  DVD that comes with the book, including coloring pages that can be printed out. This book is best suited for children ages four and up.

My four year old enjoyed this book and the DVD.  What a great way to share the true meaning of Christmas to your little ones.

The Road Less Traveled

Welcome to "A King's Kid,"a blog that is dedicated to practically applying God's word in your children' s lives. We are all kids of the King, so let's embrace this noble heritage and walk the road less traveled. The road may not be smooth all of the time but the reward at the end is great and eternal!

Walking The Regal Road-What you need to bring:


If you want to know a good book of the bible to start with, I recommend Proverbs.
Solomon, David's son, wrote in Proverbs about wisdom. True wisdom comes from God. Did you know that it's free and all you have to do is ask for this gift?

Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that
gets understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the
merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more
precious than rubies: and all the things you can desire are not to be compared to her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold on her: and happy is every one that retains her. (Proverbs 3:13-18)

Are you blessing your children or loved ones? Why not bless them today with a precious gift...wisdom!
Let's pray: Thank-you almighty God that Your skillful Godly wisdom shields (loved one's name) and your discretion and understanding watches over and keeps (loved one's name). (Proverbs 2:5-11)

Congratulations on taking this journey. Remember to always pray before you read and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal what is truth to your heart.
