Publisher's Description

Story of how Gladys Aylward was called by God to go to China as a missionary. As a girl she had always wanted to be taller and to have blonde hair. On arriving in China she realises that the people there all have dark hair and are generally not so tall. Her missionary work is simply described and her escape from the Japanese army, leading many orphan children over the mountains to safety. Told simply for younger children.

Editorial Reviews

... I would love to have owned this as a child! Very clear, readable and inspiring. This book gives children an idea of what missionary work is like, and how God called and used Gladys in his service.

    One of the things that Christian Focus 4 Kids has become well known for is their top notch children's books that help parents and grandparents introduce their little ones to important men and women from church history. Lately one of the books my girls ages 4 and 6 have been requesting over and over again at bedtime is Gladys Aylward: Are You Going to Stop? (Little Lights # 12). In this book we learn about the life of Gladys Aylward, British missionary to China. Since she was a teenager, she'd had her heart set on traveling abroad as a missionary. Gladys was from a working class background with little education, so it was difficult for her to get a missions organization to take her seriously. Although Gladys kept encountering roadblocks along the way, she continued to trust in God's provision for the call he'd put on her life. After several years of praying and saving, Gladys received an invitation to assist an elderly lady missionary in China. Using the money she'd saved, she was able to secure passage to China and began her work at the Inn of Sixth Happiness. Following her work there with Jeannie Lawson, Gladys started an orphanage and even adopted some children of her own. The book comes to a dramatic conclusion with Gladys' monumental 100 mile journey across the mountains with 100 orphans.

    Gladys Aylward: Are You Going To Stop? is a good fit for sharing with your children and grandchildren ages 4-7. It is nicely illustrated throughout and with only 24 pages, you can read it in under ten minutes. With both good writing and great artwork, Gladys Aylward: Are You Going To Stop? earns a solid 5-Stars.
