All around the world, Latter-day Saint children go to church, sing songs, pray, read scriptures, participate in family home evening, and get baptized. We may meet in different types of buildings or speak different languages, but we have a lot in common. Why? Because no matter where we live, we all love and believe in Jesus, and He loves each one of us just the same. Are you like Pablo, Dimitri, Bayani, Junpei, and Shamara? Do you believe in Jesus too?
Just one look at the cover and I knew I would love this book.
Inside, the illustrations are even more beautiful, and the text? As beautiful as the pictures.
It's a simple read that children will love hearing over and over. My youngest is 11, so while she did read it, I see this as the kind of book I will want to give to each of my grandchildren as I get more of them. It would be a great tradition to give as a gift to celebrate a milestone--like when each child starts Primary at the age of 3.
