The Coat by SΓ©verine Vidal

The Coat by SΓ©verine Vidal is a touching story of how a child learns the true meaning of giving.

Elise waits and waits for her sister Mia to outgrow the perfect, beautiful red coat that will one day be hers. Then, an unexpected encounter changes everything Elise believes about that coat, leading her to realize the joy of giving to others.

Short, sweet, and right to the point, Vidal creates a marvelously told story that displays goodness and kindness. With beautiful artwork by Louis Thomas, The Coat will definitely touch the heart. Every home and school library will want to own a copy of this uplifting story.

Highly recommended!

New Release: Beatrice Likes the Dark by April Tucholke

Beatrice likes the dark. She likes black clothes, graveyard picnics, and a sky full of stars. Her sister, Roo, likes the light. She likes bright clothes, picking strawberries, and hot, sunny days. Beatrice and Roo are nothing alike and don’t understand each other. Can Beatrice help Roo love the dark as much as she does? Can Roo help Beatrice love the light? Or are they simply too different to get along?

With lushly detailed artwork, award-winning illustrator Khoa Le brings to vivid life acclaimed author April Tucholke’s heartwarming, slightly spooky tale about two very different sisters who learn to celebrate their individuality, understanding that love runs deeper than their differences.Β

Blogging at Christian Children’s Authors

Though I have reduced my blogging duties at Christian Children’s Authors, I am still involved in this wonderful blog featuring numerous Christian authors sharing their thoughts, home schooling resources, and parenting tips.

Today, I reposted my review of Chloe The Unfeathered Parrot by Regan W.H. Macaulay. This story of love and acceptance with additional resources in the back would be perfect for home schooling families.
