Jane and the King
by Jenny Phillips
J (age 6): I kind of liked it. She gave the king the best gift. But I did not like it because if I were the king, I would not like her gift because you had to wait for 52 weeks!
Mom: This book started good discussions each day after we read a chapter. I loved it, and the illustrations!
Beautiful book with a beautiful message
So far this is my favorite book from TGTB. I loved the illustrations and the message this book offers to my 5 year old. The simplicity of life, being grateful and so much more.
If you liked The Quiltmaker's Gift, you'll like this, too.
C. liked the gift that Jane gave the king, and liked seeing how it eventually turned out.
Great book for discussing materialism and finding and sharing joy in God’s gifts. A different storyline from The Quiltmaker’s Gift, but it has a similar feel and evokes the same sorts of feelings.
This has a great lesson!
One of our absolute favorites, we always end up reading it several times in a row. I can’t say enough good things about the beauty and goodness of this story! Jane is such a good example and the morals learned through the story are A+!
What can you give a king who already has all that money can buy? Perhaps something he does not yet know to treasure. Jane and the King, a beautifully written and illustrated tale, reminds us that it is often the simple joys in life that are the most profound and rewarding—especially when shared with those we love. Join young Jane as she helps a wealthy, discontented king find true happiness in unexpected ways.
