God’s Gift by Lee Ann Mancini – 5 stars

Christian is a little turtle who is excited to get presents at Christmas, but the starfish Jacob says that he gets more presents at Hannukah because he is Jewish. The boys start to fight about who gets more presents, until their parents teach them the true meaning of Christmas and Hannukah combined.

I thought this was a sweet little book about not being greedy during the holidays, and celebrating God’s love together. It’s well-written, with a coherent plot and interesting details. Each character is distinct and lovable.
The illustrations are colorful and beautiful, and there are hidden symbols on every page for readers to hunt and find! This would be perfect to read aloud to children! g

Book Review: A Servant Like Jesus

A Servant Like Jesus
A Servant Like Jesus by Lee Ann Mancini

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Charlie is a little crab at his first day of Fish School, and he’s too shy to join the other children in class. But when a schoolmate gets injured, it’s up to Charlie to pray for the courage to jump in and help.

The illustrations are so cute! I love the bright colors and adorable little fish friends. The best part is the hidden Bible symbol on each page. I love searching for hidden objects in pictures, and this will keep children engaged and interested through multiple readings.

This would be the perfect book for any children who are shy or feel overwhelmed by fear in new situations, because it teaches that if we pray for courage, and focus on helping others rather than focusing on our own fears or discomfort, Christ will give us the bravery to do good and serve others for His glory!
