It's hard these days to find good Christian children's books, so I am pleased to recommend this book for your child's library. This is a wonderful story that communicates the fall and our need for a savior, while handling the common issue of being afraid of the dark. The lightlings are portrayed as faeries, which made them very appealing to my 4-year-old daughter, and she was quick to understand that the King of Light was God. The details in the illustrations help to convey the contrast between the light (inhabited by flowers and bunnies) and the dark (inhabited by thorns and spiders). I hope we will see more children's books from R.C.
