What a beautiful story about how God uses the circumstances we face in life - even when we don't understand them - to work for our good and the good of others...If we let Him. The only thing to keep in mind with this book is that it's a bit long if you want to read it to younger children.
Wonderfully written and illustrated. I bought this as a birthday gift for a friends 7 year old son. They both enjoyed it very much, my friend said the message was very strong and her son took it to heart. I have to admit I read it before I gave it to him and it brought me to tears. Beautiful story.
This book was wonderful! I bought it for my 7 and 10 yr old boys. My 10 yr old enjoyed it the most! I will be ordering more for Christmas gifts. If you have a 6 to 11 year old that needs encouragement to be all God created them to be, this book is for them. Beautiful story, but if your emotional like me you might need a tissue :-) Would also be great for a classroom to teach of the changing seasons and growth of God's creation.
