This is a great allegory about purity...including being pure of heart. This is a great way to introduce girls to the special gift of purity that God has given them and that we, as parents, are charged to guard until they're old enough. The Life Lessons accompanying book helps emphasize that the "kiss" represents purity and that stems from the heart. The illustrations are also very engaging for older daughters, not just little girls. We love it!
The story captivated my children and they refer to parts of the story in daily life. The guide is a wonderful supplement for discussions with older children. I have recommended it to several parents already. This book is a great value. It was easy to purchase and arrived in a timely fashion.
