At some point in time every child wonders why God made them they way they are. Maybe like me, they dislike their nose or maybe like Amy Carmichael, they long for blue eyes rather than brown.
In this short biography kids can learn about the adventures of Amy's childhood and how she prayed for blue eyes. It was not until later in her life, and the end of this book, that we find out why God gave her brown eyes: so she could do something big for Him.
This little book for young children ages 3 to 7 is a great way to introduce them to heroes of the faith whom they should model their own lives after. Okay...so maybe not Amy's childhood adventures...but definitely her willingness to join God's adventures for her life!
Parents and children alike will enjoy being introduced to her in this nicely written and illustrated book that is the first of 6 in the Little Lights series.
