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

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. :)

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

Love this book for young readers. The book pulled my young boys right into the story. We love books that incorporate God in to life's lessons, and this book does it wonderfully. Great little story of doing the right thing and it's rewards even when it seems like you'll finish last.
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.
