This book teaches little boys to live a life filled with the fruits of the spirit: Love, Joy and Peace, Patience, Kindness and Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. Bible verses, quoted in their entirety with references, introduce each trait of a God-like heart. Then, through rhyming verse, the authors describe what that looks like and how little boys can exemplify it. For example, the section on patience includes these lines:"How can a guy wait when he's raring to go?He asks God for patience and help to go slow.When you're in a hurry, don't think of yourself.Instead ask the question, 'How can I help?'"Judy Luenebrink fills the book with beautiful paintings, both colorful and detailed. There are three full illustrations for each page of text. She also provided a map on the inside covers of "The Heart Land" which features "mountains of Joy", "pastures of Goodness", and the "Path of Patience", among others.What I Like: The concept is great; the content thorough. I really appreciate the inclusion of Bible verses, ideal for memorization. My son loves the train theme that runs throughout the illustrations and borders. He also likes having a book that's "just for boys!"What I Dislike: I think the book would have been stronger if the authors had written it in simple prose, rather than forcing awkward sentence structures or less familiar words into rhyme. Also, the illustrations are fantastic, but I wish they offered more diversity. All of the characters depicted in this book are Caucasian, which is fine if your children are blond with fair features. But if your kids have darker features and prefer books that show children like them, this may not be the book for your family.Overall Rating: Very Good.
