I have to begin with a warning first if you decide to read The Lucky Few. You'll want to be sure to have a good solid couple days and a box of tissues as you read this book. If you have a heart for adoption or fostering, you'll definitely want to read Heather's story. I have to confess, I couldn't even get through the forward without getting teary! I loved seeing Heather's heart as she shares her story of becoming a mother. I want to share this book with all of my adopted friends, friend who've fostered or adopted. Be encouraged and share the joys and tears with this amazing family.

All things Bright and Beautiful is an adorable board book with a handle. It's a very chunky board book with padded covers and a cute little red handle. The pages have adorable illustrations and are textured with glitter, bumps, etc. The bright colors and textures will keep your baby entertained at least for a few minutes. It's a quick read and your baby will love touching the pages. It's small and light. I would recommend this for babies and even toddlers. They'll love carrying this sweet little book around!

Take your original The Beginner's Bible, cut it by 1/3, add a magnetic flap and a handle. That's your The Beginner's Bible Carry-Along Treasury. When I selected this book, I wasn't sure if it was going to be the complete Beginner's Bible or not. I wish it was, but I'll still settle for this one. This still has both old and new testament stories. The stories and illustrations are the same as those from the Beginner's Bible. If you already have one, you won't need this. However... this would be a great little first Bible for 2-3 year olds who like may want to take a Bible to church or carry it around the house. Some of the other reviews didn't know why the magnetic flap was necessary, but I like it. It's adorable and what 2 year old doesn't like magnets? Recommended for toddlers and preschoolers.

If you haven't noticed a theme in my blog... I really really love The Beginner's Bible series. The Beginner's Bible for Little Ones is very similar to the Stories About Jesus version in design. This is a smaller sturdy board book. It has the classic Beginner's Bible illustrations (some very much the same). This board book version include both New and Old Testament stories, including the creation story, Noah, David and Goliath, Daniel and the Lion's Den, Jesus' Birth, Jesus Feeds Thousands, and the resurrection story. This is perfect for babies and young toddlers! Especially if they are anything like my little T-Rex! I highly recommend this!

The Berenstain Bears Friendship Blessings Collection is a collection of 5 books bound beautifully in hard cover. As always, the Berenstain books have the classic illustrations and a great moral to their stories. This is a great book for preschoolers. Be warned though... your little one may want to read all the stories before bed so make sure you have enough time for all 5 stories! This is a great gift for those preschoolers graduating this spring.

Our kids love their Grandpa and Poppy. Thank You, God for Grandpa by Amy Parker perfectly reflects all the fun reasons why we love them. Like all of Amy Parker's other books, this is a good quality board book, quick bedtime story, and wonderful illustrations. Great for beginning readers and tired moms and dads. :)
My personal favorite part of the book... referring to Grandpa...
"The widest man I know -
Just ask him- he'll agree!
He knows how to do everything,
And now he teaches me."
I'm pretty sure both would agree. Great Amy Parker book to add to your collection. :)
