Children's Book Extravaganza: God Gave Us Heaven

God Gave Us Heaven was read with great interest in our home.

The story presents simple answers to difficult questions often posed by youngsters. Over the course of a day, Papa (a polar bear) patiently answers Little Cub's questions. Vibrant captivating pictures help tell the story and engage young readers. The pictures received rave reviews from my kid.

The plan of salvation is presented in an easy to understand way aided by pictures to appeal to auditory and visual learners. Kids remember best when they see, hear, and read something. This book meets those criteria.

From the young readers in the family we have reviews of: "AWESOME!" and "The pictures were cool!" and "It was so cute!"

"The pictures received rave reviews from my kid."

I'm a bit confused here, I thought you had plural children or "kids" if you will.

So are you only reporting on the reactions of one of your children? What does the other think and why don't you want us to know?
