Where the Jewels Are - Book Review
by Diana Symons
How do you say No to a princess who has everything? This princess has a wise father who sends her on a journey to find the one thing she doesn't know she needs. Come to the Land of Wonderful and walk the halls of the Great Castle with the young Princess who comes to value friendship over material things. Though she’s off to find a beautiful jewel, it’s her trusted servant and friend who opens her heart to finding value in others.
Where the Jewels Are is a fairytale for kids 8-10 years old, or for the young at heart. It's the first book in the Tales from the Throne series.
Wow, what an excellent book. Ok, that's it. Ha! Not likely with my big mouth. ;) As you can tell I liked it.
It's so hard to teach children the difference between wants vs needs. They think they need everything. And if you're anything like me you do not want your child to be spoiled with material things. Love yes...stuff no.
This story is an excellent christian fairy tale. My daughter learned to read last year in Kindergarten and since she has really taken off. She loved this book and read it herself!! She's 7. I was so proud. :) And she was proud of herself. Not only does the book have a wonderful message, it's very easy to read.
