Where the Jewels Are Review

Although I don't celebrate it, I know that Christmas is coming and many of you are searching for gifts to give your loved ones. If there is a young girl in your life, I would highly recommend getting her the book Where the Jewels Are. This is a book about a sweet young princess who wants things she doesn't have (think Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). The big difference between her and Veruca, however, is that this princess acknowledges that she is asking too much. In order to help her figure out what is truly important in life, her father (the king) sends her on an adventure.

This book has such a sweet story and can help children to understand that friends, not material goods, are truly our most prized "possessions". It's a great book for kids from ages 7-12, especially girls, and is organized into short chapters with easy-to-read words. Children who are reading chapter books should be able to read this to themselves, but parents will also enjoy the captivating story. At the end of the book are some questions which you can discuss with your child that will help to reinforce the good morals "taught" by the book. Although the book has a "Christian" theme, Jewish kids will enjoy the book too (but the questions at the end would not be appropriate for them).

Cost: You can buy Where the Jewels Are from Amazon.com for $5.99. ($$$)

Overall: We give Where the Jewels Are a 9/10!

You can learn more about Diana Symons, the author of this book, at her website, and you can follow her on Facebook and Twitter as well.
