What it has going for it
When Mark Nielsen, the author of this book, contacted me I was impressed with his pleasant optimistic attitude. Even though I never review children books on my blog I just had to say yes. I hardly expected this lovely book. The author had written a personal note to me AND signed the book. Filled with beautiful illustrations this book does a great job of showing how children all over the world worship. I've let my nephews flip through it at they love the bright beautiful pictures and listening to the story. Every time they come over they grab it and ask for me to read it. What better praise can I give?
It talks about children taking the subway in New York to church and I liked that. I've never been to New York but it reminded me of when I was in London and took the Underground to church. So different than Utah where there's always a church building within walking distance.
Yea or Nay?
As this is geared towards LDS children, I'm sure this might not appeal to most of my readers but it's worth a look. The pictures are beautiful and it talks a little about LDS beliefs.
