My Review

Oh my goodness! This book was so adorable!! It was longer than I thought it would be, which was a nice surprise. I absolutely loved the illustrations, as did my children. I also really liked how everything was explained and how things were related to what children would comprehend. I liked it so much that I went and grabbed a copy of the author's other book, The Holy Ghost Is like a Blanket. It was just as adorable. I've already gifted these books and will be doing so again in the future.

  5. Great books! When one of my nieces got baptized her "other" grandma gave a talk about the holy ghost being a blanket and gave each of the kids being baptized a blanket. I think it is something they will always remember :)

  6. I really need to participate in this or something like it. Really badly. But every time I get ready to sign up for one, I tend to panic. I need to just not do that, sign up and get some ebooks read!
