The Kingdom of Thrim (Book Review)


The Kingdom of Thrim
Disclosure:  I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Janis Cox in exchange for a honest review. 

The Kingdom of Thrim is a wonderful children's story that teaches the lesson of what happens when we don't consult God before making decisions. The main character, Yoj is a happy and loved man in his town who makes dolls. One day, a stranger comes into town and gives Yoj the opportunity to make more money than what he was making. Without consulting God, friends or family Yoj jumps at the chance and follows the stranger. He is taken from his beautiful and colorful world into a dark and gray world. It is here he realizes what he left behind and how much more important his joy, friends and relationships are than money. 

The Kingdom of Thrim

There is such an important lesson here for both adults and children. The illustrations are gorgeous, and the author is also the illustrator! There are even activities included to do with your child after reading the book like making your own Kingdom of Thrim out of Lego and even sock puppets! My sons who are 5 and almost 7 years old enjoyed the story very much. I would highly recommend this book! It is a wonderful family read.

  1. Sounds lovely. I'm going to check her work out. I've taught the same lessons using historical characters (what would have happened if William Carey had heeded this advice?!!), but a colorful story hits the heart more. :-)

  4. Looks interesting! I've ordered a huge pile of books from India (Since books are a lot cheaper and more importantly AVAILABLE IN ENGLISH compared to Chile!) and I'm SO looking forward to it. My son's 4.5 and has finally moved on to chapter books- which for me is a lot more interesting for me to read aloud than picture books!

    I'm still looking for chapter books that are just right for his age- i.e. around 100 pages - *most* are over 200, sigh.

    We loved "My father's Dragon" so have ordered the other two in the series. A few Ruskin Bonds, Kingdom of Renly, Horrid Henrys. I'm so excited!

    1. Hi, Swapna and thanks for hosting #PracticalMondays! This is a wonderful children's book; I hope you all get a chance to read it. Thanks for sharing these other book titles with me. Have you tried The Magic Treehouse series by: Mary Pope Osbourne? They are about 100 page chapter books, and my sons love them! They are also wonderful for learning about different countries and places. Thanks for commenting and hope you have a wonderful week :)
