    I recently read this book to 5 groups of kids ages ranging from 4-8 they all loved this book. The meaning behind the story is absolutely beautiful, the first time I read it I got a little bit choked up and each time after that I just felt so overwhelmed by God's love. I can't wait to read this to my little girls!

    This is the delightful and colorful story of Firebird who always complained about the rain hiding the sun until his mother challenged him to ‘ride the clouds.' An allegory regarding God.

    Your children will love the many caricatures of Firebird's many poses! They will have you and your children giggling in delight!

    Firebird, written by Brent McCorkle and Amy Parker, is the story of a baby oriole who loves the sunshine Each time a storm comes, Firebird gets upset and asks his mama why God allows rain. During one storm, Mama decides Firebird is old enough to find out for himself about what is on the other side of the storm. The lesson he learns is one that changes his attitude forever.

    This book, written for children 4-10 years old holds profound truth that needs to be learned at an early age. Even for those of us who have learned it, sometimes we need a simple reminder. This was a easy to read book, beautifully illustrated by Rob Corley and Chuck Vollmer. The bright colors are sure to hold the attention of the younger child, and it is not too difficult for an older child to read. I like that the message should be easily comprehensible for a child to understand while reading, yet also is one that can be turned into a family discussion and teaching moment.

    By the way, this is the book that Samantha Crawford writes in Unconditional (book and film) and Firebird is a perfect illustration of the premise. If you haven't read the novel by Eva Marie Everson (based on Brent McCorkle's screenplay) or seen the film, I highly recommend that you do both.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.
