AbbieTexasAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The true HappylandNovember 17, 2010AbbieTexasAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you are looking for the best way to explain God's plan of salvation this book is it! My children loved it - all 4 of them from the ages of 2 years old up to 9 years old. I even tested it on my sunday school class of girls aged from 4th grade to 6th grade. All of them loved it.
This book is about a young girl named Lola Mazola who gets invited on an awesome trip of a lifetime with some friends. The catch - it costs too much money, his dad can't afford it. Lola is so disappointed, as any child would be.
At Sunday school she learns about John 3:16 and the Happyland of Heaven, and God's greatest and most perfect gift.
At this point in the book the verse of John 3:16 is broken down into small parts that are easily understood by even the smallest child. Who is God? What is the world? Who is Jesus (and what all he did - birth, life, ministry, death & Resurrection)? and How can we accept this gift? and What does salvation mean?
Still disappointed about her trip she soon forgets about John 3:16. When she receives a gift of money that will allow her to go she says this is the best gift ever. *This is where the story gets good - this author does an excellent job of tying scripture to real world experience. As a parent I LOVED it!!!
Her father explains that the greatest gift was from God. My Favorite quote is,
"Uncle Tom gave his money so that you could go to Happyland for a week. But God gave is ONE and ONLY son so that you could go to His happy land of Heaven FOREVER..."
The book ends with Lola realizing how special Jesus is and praying to accept him as her Savior.
An added bonus to this book is that following the story it gives practical steps of growth after salvation.
This is truly an all inclusive childrens book of salvation. Start young bringing them into the knowledge of Christ and they will see him as a person, a friend, and a Savior - they will desire a true relationship.
This would be an excellent Christmas gift.
This book was given to me by B&H Publishing in exchange for an honest review of the product. Thank you for the review copy.
