The Children of the King

There once was a family of 5 orphans who were so excited by the thought of being adopted by the king! Each of the siblings sets out to perfect their gift for the king: one is a woodcarver, another is a painter, the third is a scholar, and the fourth is a singer. But the fifth child had no special gift, just a kind and loving heart. This allegory is a wonderful way for children to learn of God’s great love for his children, a love that is given without the need of a grand or special gift.
