I won't include a synopsis of the story as you can read that above, but I must say this is one of my favorite books to read to my kids, most of which are boys. At the time that I received this book as part of a review offer, I was desperate for books that would encourage my boys to live with honor and integrity, to evaluate the importance of making good choices and the consequences of bad choices. I was looking for something that would entertain, as boys need that to some degree so they don't lo...more
Christian Fiction Addiction
In a village on the west side of the kingdom lives a young knight who is widely known as being brave and kind, spending his days helping those in need. When the king announces a series of contests and competitions in which the winner will be chosen as prince of the land, the knight begins to question whether he could ever win such a contest, whether he is truly the strongest or smartest or fastest. As the contests begin, the young knight will be tested in ways he couldn't have imagined, as the c...more
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 b...more
Karen Kingsbury has long impressed me with her emotionally compelling women's fiction, and with Brave Young Knight she shows her amazing talent as an author of children's books. This is a truly wonderful story about the importance of integrity, character, honesty, and following God instead of others. Stories like this, that capture boys' imaginations while teaching them good values and life lessons, are a real rarity these days. Also, the illustrations are amazing! Some of the most beautiful ill...more
What a delightful and powerful lesson to learn. What is the meaning of true bravery? How many times in our own lives do we think it is a certain handful of things that make someone better than others. Karen Kingsbury has a great story with this brave young knight as he lives by what is right even when it is not the most popular. This is a book that will be fabulous to share with any child as they grow to help them see what it is that God is looking for. I love this. Her children's books are quit...more
This Christian-centered tale about the importance of integrity uses fairy-tale tropes to engage and elaborate upon its' central theme. A young knight demonstrates his kindness every day in his own community and eventually the King issues a challenge to all knights to compete for a princedom. His sense of values wins out in the end over princes who may appear stronger, faster, or smarter but lack any sense of honor.
My boys really liked this book. I loved the message that it doesn't matter if you're the strongest, fastest, or smartest. What matters is that you try your hardest and do things with honesty and integrity. That is what a true prince does, what pleases our Father, and what He rewards. :)
You just can not go wrong reading Karen Kingsbury. She is a wonderful writer. This children's book shows how important honesty is. Definitely a book I recommend for kids.
