When Amy Carmichael was a little girl she had begged God to give her blue eyes. When she kept looking in the mirror and seeing brown eyes, she thought that God didn't answer her prayer. But God knew there were other children with brown eyes who needed help. Amy learned that God always answers prayer, and He always does what it best. She also learned that blue eyes were not the eyes of India--but Amy's brown eyes were! Recommended for ages 4 to 7.

"My own nieces and nephews love books and being read to. The older ones are now wanting to read books for themselves. Fiction is all very well but I love it when children catch the thrill from real life. That's what people like Amy Carmichael do - they show you how what happens in our day to day can change a life and change a world. To start a life that honours God in meaningful way, try introducing that life to those believers who have been there and done that."
