Little Kid Reaction

"Can we read that again?" Our preschooler saw Ashley in herself (visually) and liked talking to Ruby Lee.

Big Kid Reaction

This is a beautifully told story. It's nice to find books that transcend generations and have a positive message. The illustrations capture the emotions and expressions as though they are a picture. The glossary and lesson page are nice touches, too.

Pros:

The story is great, the illustrations are beautiful, and it will withstand LOTS of repeated readings without becoming boring. It talks about faith without preaching.

Cons:

NONE.
