Based on the Parable of the Great Banquet in Luke 14:15–23, this is the perfect picture book to teach young children that we are all welcome to God’s banquet in heaven—we only need to accept his invitation.
In Princess Joy’s Birthday Blessing, Princess Joy loves celebrating her birthday! But when no one accepts the princesses’ invitation to their sister Joy’s surprise birthday party, she finds out and is sad. But her father, the king, helps her understand that there are more ways to celebrate a special day and much better gifts to get than ones wrapped in pretty paper and bows, so Joy comes up with a new and very special party plan. She invites some very special guests to help her celebrate and turns it into a party for everyone, not just her own birthday!
