2010 Book of the Year ~ Christian Small Publisher Association
“This book is part of our “Bright Future Series” which shares Biblical principles for families in beautiful and down-to-earth ways. The Person I Marry was awarded “2010 Book of the Year” by the Christian Small Publisher Association. We created this book the year of our 30th anniversary as a tool for tenderizing the hearts of our own 12 children, and sparking comfortable conversation about marriage amongst ourselves”
I was eager to review this book. I received a digital copy, but - I highly recommend getting your own hardcover copy to treasure. This is one of those innocent looking, but powerful message books! Our children are never too young to start learning about what's truly important. Next to knowing and loving God, often your next most important decision is who to marry... Don't you think we should start off right by letting them know what to look for? I do. Storybooks are a wonderful way to impart what you truly value without it becoming a "lecture" from Mom and Dad.
The Bentz Test Laboratory enjoyed this rhyming storybook (but, pages would have been cozier than clicks...just my personal preference). The illustrations are appealing. In fact, while reading it to my girls, it made me thankful for the wonderful man that I married. What a great message! I'll be checking out the other books from them as well - I think you should too, they would make wonderful Christmas gifts...
