The True Princess by Angela Elwell Hunt; Illustrated by Diana Magnuson

The True Princess
Book Description:  
A Parable in the truest sense, this story teaches children the meaning of Jesus' words, "Whoever wants to be great among you must be your servant". The concept of royalty pervades the Bible, and this book offers an opportunity for parents and teachers to teach children about being royalty in God's family. Full-color illustrations.

My Review:  This is one of my most favorite children's books!  The illustrator, Diana Magnuson, has portrayed the princess and the area with excellent exactness of the time period.  But it's the message of the story by Angela Elwell Hunt that really hits home.  I've read this story many times to both boys and girls in children's church classes and they all seem to enjoy the lesson.  The True Princess comes straight from the heart.  The story is all about learning to live as the King wants us to and not as selfish beings.  The princess learns to bake, clean up and to laugh at her self.  This is a wonderful story with a great lesson for children and adults alike. 
 It seems to be out of print now.  But if you can find this book is available on  Amazon so be sure to purchase it.  I don't think you'll be disappointed.
