My Review

In this fairy tale of The Brave Young Knight, a young Knight who lived in a village on the west side of the kingdom always went around helping those who needed help. He, along with other knights was in a competition to be the new Prince. The competition had several events and the one that did their best would be the new king. Some of the knights did things that made them look better, but didn’t exactly go by the rules, but the young knight from the west did as he was told, and did his best. Who do you think was crowned the Prince?

I like that Karen Kingsbury takes an old story and telling it to children using her usual Christian theme throughout. I also appreciate the father son relationship in the story because of the fathers influence in their child’s life.
I love the vibrant colorful illustrations in this book, reinforcing the story in pictures. The pictures will make the young reader feel like they are in a castle where they can pretend they can meet the Prince and all of the young knights. These illustrations will make the child’s imagination run wild!

I recommend this book for young children as well as public, school and church libraries.

I received this book free from Zondervan to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55
