Book Review-The Flowering Cross
With Easter coming in just 2 weeks, you may be looking for things to put in your child's basket. This beautiful book, The Flowering Cross, by Beth Ryan, would be perfect!
The Flowering Cross is about a 6 year old girl named Katie who has a grouchy old man named Jack for a neighbor. The neighborhood kids are generally scared of Jack, but sweet Katie doesnt let Jack's additude keep her from eventually making friends with him. She uses her friendship to witness to Jack and invite him to church.
I love how Beth Ryan uses this story to encourage young children to witness to others, even if they dont seem to be lovable. The best part, is that on every few pages, there is a Bible verse and a spiritual truth geared towards children.
This is a beautiful book and is sure to be one of our favorites! It made me both laugh and cry, and I cant wait to give it to my children on Easter.
It is available for purchase from Thomas Nelson. It is only 12.99. A great buy!
Thank you to the Tommy Nelson publishers and the Book Sneeze club for sending this book for review. I was not paid for my review, and the opinions in this review are my own.
