Blog Tour - The Sacament

About the book: It's understandable that some children appear bored or distracted during sacrament meeting. Many young Latter-day Saints are probably unsure about the true meaning of the sacrament and why we attend. With this in mind, bestselling author John Bytheway has composed a delightful poem (inspired by a short poem by Walter H. Horne) to help Latter-day Saints young and old appreciate the ordinance of the sacrament. In particular, children will learn what they should be thinking about (and not be thinking about) during this sacred time as well as what the sacrament can do for all of us.

Beautifully illustrated by Nathan Pinnock, this thought-provoking story about a young boy and his grandpa is a gentle reminder about the importance of remembering the Lord Jesus Christ, especially during this special meeting meant for Him.

My Review: This book came at a great time for our family. Our schedule has been a bit off and the result is that our kids Sacrament reverence has gone down hill. I was happy to have been able to pull out this beautiful book for our home evening lesson and read the poem, look at the great pictures and read the explanations about why we do what we do during this sacred time of the week. I really enjoyed the explanations, they explain things well enough for even young children to understand. I even learned from them. You don't want to miss this great book! 

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
