“A Royal Easter Story” was sent to me by Zonderkidz – a division of Zondervan Publishing – free of charge, in exchange for my honest opinion and review of it.
This picture book was written by Jeanna Young and Jacqueline Johnson. The illustrations were done by Omar Aranda. They are colorful and quite precious.
This story is about a family of five princess sisters. They are on their way to a big Easter celebration in another land, in a race with a group of knight brothers when they find a little girl who has lost her parents. The princesses decide that it is more important to help the little girl find her parents than to win a race. It starts to storm and they all huddle under a blanket and pray. I think this is the first picture book I have ever seen with an actual prayer…I LOVE IT!!
I would recommend this storybook.
