Princess Lillian and Grandpa’s Goodbye by Jenny Fulton

Princess Lillian and Grandpa’s Goodbye is a heartwarming story to help children cope with loss.

Princess Lillian visits Grandpa in the hospital, where she learns he is going to his forever-kingdom home. It makes Daddy and Lillian sad, but her grandpa seems happy. That’s when he tells her about his best friend, the Great King Above the Nations, how the Great Spirit helps us understand, and how wonderful our forever-kingdom home is.

Princess Lillian and Grandpa’s Goodbye is a beautifully illustrated story sharing the joy of everlasting life with a Navajo influence. Lillian is dressed as a princess and an Angel comforts her as she goes to say her goodbyes.

One of the lovely things about this story is that it helps us realize how similar the stories of God are throughout different cultures and how important the gift of everlasting life remains.

Highly recommended.

Publisher Going out of Business – Limited Stock Available!!!

Guardian Angel Publishing will be closing its doors and I am so sad. They took a chance on an unknown author like me and published three of my four books.

Until I figure out what to do, the only way to purchase these is through the stock I have on hand. I don’t have many books left, but one is a Christmas book, one a Thanksgiving book, and the other one tackles the topic of bullying from a Christian perspective.

In the hills outside Bethlehem, Obed guards his first flock of sheep. When the angels appear to tell of the Savior’s birth, he is hesitant to follow the others to see the new King. When Obed returns to his sheep, he realizes it is a night of miracles.

Ten-year-old Macy is waiting for her grandparents to arrive on Thanksgiving. When the front door swings open, Grandma and Grandpa are covered with hugs and kisses. Crash! Everyone rushes in to find the dog gnawing a meaty turkey leg. Can Macy’s quick thinking save dinner?

Amos is targeted by the town bully because he is so small. When word reaches Amos of his friend David’s battle with Goliath, he thinks back to what David told him about putting his faith in God’s protection. Perhaps the same God can help Amos face his bully, too.

Josie by Susan Lowe and Diane Iverson

An incredible based on real life story of faith and survival is what you’ll find in Josie by Susan Lowe and Diane Iverson.

Everyone breathes a sigh of relief once Hitler is defeated. But, for young Josie Trollmann and her older brother, Andreas, the horrors are just beginning. When the communist leader of Yugoslavia attempts to wipe out the ethnic Germans, four-year-old Josie and twelve-year-old Andreas are separated from their family and sent to a concentration camp. Then Josie finds herself at the death camp, Rudolfsnad. Scared and alone, she must keep praying for her survival and to be reunited with her family again.

Wow! Every once in a while a story touches your heart and you know you won’t soon forget it. JosieΒ is that story. This amazing little girl endures so much on her journey. To think of a four-year-old girl being ripped away from her parents and grandparents and then finding herself alone in a death camp, it makes my eyes well up. Each time you think things will be okay, that safety and security Josie grasps for only moments is ripped away from her. Yet, she prays and prays and focuses on her survival and her desire to see her family again. Through mistreatment and undernourishment and illness, Josie prays for God to get home safely.

This inspiring story is written by Josie’s daughter and niece. What a touching tribute to a person I am so glad I got a chance to meet through the pages of this story. The Epilogue provides additional information about Josie and her family, which draws the reader even closer to them.

 

Josie by Susan Lowe and Diane Iverson is a must read for history lovers and those who enjoy incredible stories of faith and courage.

Merry Myrrh the Christmas Bat by Regan W. H. Macaulay

Regan W.H. Macaulay and Alex Zgud team up again to bring you a sweet Christmas story titled, Merry Myrrh the Christmas Bat.

Myrrh is born to the barn bats, Mr. and Mrs. Raft. Named after a gift from the Magi, the Rafts have enjoyed visiting the farmhouse each Christmas to peer in at the Nativity scene in the window. When Myrrh asks to join them, they tell him he will be old enough next year. With the help of Sensa Squirrel, Myrrh hatches a plan to visit the farmhouse on his own and ends up needing the help of the family who lives there.

Merry Myrrh the Christmas Bat is another charming story by Macaulay. Curiosity and Christmas make a great combination to find the little brown bat inside the family’s farmhouse. Young readers will love watching this story unfold as much as they enjoy Zgud’s beautiful artwork. I hope this author and illustrator plan to team up again. When they work together they create beauty and magic.

This is a sweet seasonal story everyone will enjoy.
