My Review

I absolutely loved Baptism & Boomerangs!! It was bright and colorful, eye-catching, with fun illustrations and designs. What made it even better was the story that these pages told of a grandfather teaching two of his grandchildren about what happens after baptism. It's something we don't always think about talking to our children about, but definitely something we should. I loved how using the boomerang made it so easy for my kids to grasp what this book was teaching. It just clicked with them. I also loved how the Australian culture came through in this book. The story definitely made me want to get nice, wooden boomerangs for my children when they're baptized so they can remember the lesson taught here.

If you have a child or know of anyone being baptized soon or who has recently been baptized Baptism & Boomerangs would make an excellent gift. It was a marvelous book and one I plan on reading several more times with my children, as well as sharing with others.

About the Illustrator

She was born with a love for life, art, and storytelling, and her pusuit to study a degree of film and animation came as no surprise to family and friends. Moving back to Brisbane, Tatiana completed her four-year degree.
