5.0 out of 5 stars A Necklace of Virtues 29 Dec. 2012
By Sandra K. Stiles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a historical fiction story about a real princess that lived years ago. Little Princess Audrey had everything she could want. She had lots of dresses and lots of necklaces. She loved her necklaces. One day she put on her favorite necklace and went to the church to light a candle for her sick sister. She loved the peacefulness of the church. Suddenly it wasn't so peaceful. There was a lady with a crying baby praying. Audrey mentioned the crying baby. The baby grabbed her hand and necklace. When Audrey tried to hand the baby back it was tangled in her necklace. She told the mother that she thought the baby was hungry. Food is what the lady had been praying for. When Audrey realized they had no food she gave the woman her neck to sell and buy food. When she went home her mother found her crying in a closet. She was so sad that they had so much and there were so many who had nothing. Her mother talked with her about her kind heart and doing what was right.
She grew up and became queen. She continued to give away her possessions to help the poor. When she had given everything away she became a nun to continue to help others. This was a wonderful story of compassion and giving of yourself. It is wonderful to find such wonderful and motivating stories based on history for children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Story of Generosity 26 April 2012
By Your Gift card Dollars - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What a sweet story about sharing our abundance and caring for others. Detailed illustrations and a sweet story tie together a story that I think little ones will really 'get.' Little Audrey's actions made me, a grown-up teacher and Aunt, examine my own attitude about giving.

I want my nieces and nephews and all of my students to grow up to be like this virtuous woman. I think her generosity of spirit would make our world a better place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wish it weren't fiction... 6 Jun. 2014
By Mom of Five - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We love this author and the wildly colorful illustrations from this company, but unlike the story about St. Helen and the Cats, this one is entirely made up....which would be FINE if we weren't looking for saints stories for the retellings in our homeschool. This is adorable as a read aloud, but not useful for retellings.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Necklace of Virtues 28 April 2012
By hogg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As an aunt who likes to read to her nieces and nephews, I was extremely impressed by the thoughtful approach to this story. This book offers an insightful and engaging response to an important question that all children grapple with at some point. This is a perfect story, and I would highly recommend this book. Brava to the author!

We love this book. It is so nice to see simple sweet beautiful story about Christians from long ago. It is especially nice for today's modern princesses to read about. Definitely worth the buy.
