  • The Sunflower Parable, which helps children discover the value of planting seeds, not only in the ground but also in the hearts of those around us
My Thoughts:
I got this book to put into my daughter's bedtime story rotation.  The stories are fairly short and easy to understand.  She especially loved the bright illustrations!  While at five she may be a little young to connect the parable to the actual lesson being taught, we were able to have good discussions about the stories and talk about why the characters did the things they did.  I am certain this will be a book we will pull out often through the years, because the discussions will only get richer as she is able to comprehend more.  This is a wonderful book to help reinforce Bible lessons and character traits.
