It is the most spectacular spring in history. The princesses—Joy, Grace, Faith, Charity, and Hope are busy with preparations for the annual Easter celebration and the castle is alive with activity.
Into the kingdom ride five new friends, young knights, who are as spirited as the princesses. In the new Princess Parables title, A Royal Easter Story, a challenge is presented and the boys and girls decide to race to the neighboring village where the annual Easter celebration and feast will be held. Along the way, the princesses must weather a scary storm and rescue another new friend. But in the end the lesson is clear … trust in the Lord and his love and you can overcome any obstacle.

I love how the princesses stop during the storm and they leave a lasting impression on the power of prayer. As the princesses further their journey they seek the help of God and ask for wisdom and courage.
This will be a great title to have in any specials girls Easter Basket this Easter!

A Royal Easter Story is based on Luke 11:7-13. It is almost Easter and the King and his daughters are preparing for the annual Easter Jubilee. It will be a large party for all the kingdom to celebrate the resurrection of the Lord.
One day during this season of celebration one of the newly instated knights of the King's round table drops by for a visit. With him are his five sons, Timothy, Andrew, Jonathan, Christian, and Alexander. Is this perhaps a peek into some future stories featuring these new characters? One can hope!
During the preparations Princess Grace ASKS a question about why they make the journey to celebrate the resurrection. Her father the King reminds her that it is for them to remember all that Jesus has done for them.
The day arrives and all the royal palace prepares to leave for the celebration but before they can depart a calamity happens. The Princesses and the knight's sons stay behind to fix it before joining the rest of the group. After the crisis is averted the group decides to take two different routes to race to see who can arrive first.
The princesses then find themselves SEEKING for answers to a brand new dilemma. They have found a lost little girl and must find a way to return her to her family. The girls must battle the weather as they make their way to their father the King. Once they arrive there they KNOCK on the door and are let in. Eventually the little girl is reunited with her family and everyone can go on with the celebration.
This is another great installment in this parable series. The message of putting the needs of others first comes through loud and clear. We also learn that God sees and hears His children and is eager to reach out and help them, they only need to ask.
If you are looking for a fun way to share some Biblical principles with your little girls then this is a great resource. The overall story is exciting and fun and the illustrations are quite engaging. But the best part is that you can use the story to strike up some very important conversations with your girls.

This is such an adorable story. My great niece is going to love it. She can’t seem to get enough of the Princess Series. This book shows that even though competition can be fun, it’s not always winning, that has the biggest reward.
The illustrations are sure to grab the attention of even the youngest of your little princesses.
Disclosure: I was given a copy of this Book by the publisher, ZonderKidz, Z Blog Squad for an honest review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.

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.
