I love the teachings of this book that money isn’t “wealth”. Zero potty humor and just all around great family reading time.
Prince Percy was not a humble Prince, but he learned some valuable lessons and grew as a person. I loved the moral of this story and how this book encourages good character!!
It is so difficult to find earlier reader books that aren’t all graphic novels full of meaness and potty humor. I work hard to find heart warming books for my boys because “just reading” is not enough. This book fits the bill perfectly! Exciting adventure, and a once selfish boy who learns what life’s true treasures are. Please write more Jenny Phillips! And thank you for this treasure of a book.
My Level K girl chose this story to read outloud to me. She needed help with some of the big words, but though it was challenging, she really wanted to know what happened next. So did I, ha! I like that it ends with a very happy ending, but I didn’t cringe at the happily ever after.
My 8 year old son loves this book! He has read it multiple times all on his own. Also loves the Kingdom of Kind stories in the LA level 3 course book. Such great stories with wonderful messages!
When Prince Percy, proud as a peacock, is rescued by a humble family in the woods, he is shocked to learn something—the family believes they are richer than he is. What treasure could they possibly possess that would compare to his prized ruby? Through adventure, misfortune, and the love and forgiveness of the people in his kingdom, Percy might just be able to learn what is truly valuable.
