This heartwarming book tells about a baby born with a glowing crown on his head. The crown signifies the child is "magnificent" and "born to shine".
Here are some of my favorite parts of the book:
"From your very first day, you were chosen to glow in a very big way."
"If you fall down, remember your glorious, marvelous crown...It won't flicker or fade...It won't leave. All you have to do is believe."
"It tells the true story of just who you are."
All of Nancy Tillman's books focus on showing children that they are loved. I decided to put a slight spin on this sweet book as the boys and I read one afternoon.
I discussed with the boys how we wear crowns because we are children of God, the King above all kings. Our inheritance as God's children won't fade away...we just have to believe in Jesus and what he did for us on the cross.
Then we made these beautiful crowns :)
I took 2 pieces of heavyweight white paper, cut the zigzag pattern at the top, and just stapled the pieces together at one end so they laid flat for decorating.
The boys colored with markers and glued on a star made from heavyweight paper. They added jewels and glittery stickers. (We used regular school glue and the jems popped off later that night. You may want to re-do with hot glue after they go to bed so the jewels stay on longer.)
When they were done decorating, I stapled the other side and glued on another piece of ribbon.
They enjoyed wearing their crowns for the next few days. My sweet little princes!
