Apples of Gold teaches about sexual purity through a powerful and sensitive parable about two sisters entrusted with a precious gift from the ruler of the land. When the governor's son returns, which young woman will be chosen to serve the prince--based on how the treasure has been protected and cherished?
Two sisters are given a precious gift by the Governor of the land. A gift they are instructed to care for and protect until his son, the prince, returns. One sister guards the gift carefully, understanding its value. The other sister flaunts the gift and allows others to abuse it. When the prince finally arrives and the sisters are called into his presence, they are surprised by the offer given to the sister who cherished the gift.
Apples of Gold is a fairytale a la George MacDonald, where each scene teaches more than one moral lesson. Lisa Samson spins a tale that warns young girls of the folly in not recognizing the beauty of sexual purity, truth, integrity, and steadfastness. This tale illustrates the rewards of self control and obedience without being preachy.
The black-and-white illustrations resemble wood cut prints, enhancing the storys fairytale feel. This book is a perfect gift for every girl you know from toddler to adolescence. It is also a great resource for teachers of young girls. Vasthi Acosta, Christian Book Previews.com
