Precious Seed

Hardback, 16pp with 7 gatefold flaps. Published by Pupfish Ltd., Lathkill Old Farmhouse, Over Haddon, Bakewell, DE45 1JE, UK. Price £6.99, ISBN 1-904637-08-6 and 1-904637-07-8.

These two delightfully illustrated children’s books are written for 3-6 year olds. They are written about a boy called George and what he discovers about God and the Bible.

Even When deals simply with some of the Lord’s teaching in Matthew 10 and Luke 12. George finds out what God knows about him, his circumstances and his needs. By lifting the page flaps the reader can learn what God ‘really knows, and how He keeps all His promises’.

Even If explores some of the challenges that children face as they are growing up. Through events in the life of chosen Bible characters the readers are helped to discover that God can help them through the difficulties that they face in the same way that He has helped those that trust Him.

Trying to find material which presents simple spiritual truth to growing minds is not an easy task and books, like these, that attempt to do that are to be welcomed. They should prove a stimulus to the reader and an opportunity for parents to develop the truths covered.
