My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I love, love, love this sweet children's book that mixes adorable farm life with theology at an age appropriate level for young minds and hearts. Kathleen Ruckman has written a beautiful story that teaches Biblical truth while it entertains with simple delight. The main characters - Grandpa, Adam, and Annie - are easy to relate to and interact with one another in such a loving way that provides a wonderful example even from within the pages of a colorful storybook. I greatly appreciate how it teaches about God's love for us in practical, every-day terms and explains who God is so clearly for young children. This book is a must-have for any child's book shelf!
In Kathleen Ruckman’s delightful book for kids ages 5-8, colorful illustrations from Greg Hardin animate Annie and Adam’s adventures on their grandpa’s farm and the lessons they learn about God. Every starry sky, barnyard animal, and fishing trip leads to a conversation and an opportunity for young ones to discover God as Creator, Provider, and loving Father.
This delightful story explores the wisdom of the Bible, the love of Jesus, and the joy of being a child of God. A handy scripture reference is included to help parents and teachers in their conversations about God with special little ones in their lives.
