What is a Temple?

About the book: Introduce your children to the spirit of the temple! Each page details a different attribute of the temple so young readers can understand its purpose in our lives. By teaching children about Heavenly Father s house now, this book will help them prepare to enter the temple someday and enjoy the spirit of our Father s house.

My review: I enjoyed reading this cute picture book to our 2 year old. I loved the simple way things were explained in this book. Each page talking about the way that the Temple is a House of God in a way that children will be able to understand.

And I really loved the illustrations. They are fun, cute and easy to understand for young children as well.

If you're looking for an easy way to explain the Temple to your children, no need to look any further!

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

About the illustratorFor EMILY BURNETTE, creating art has always been an essential part of her life. Beginning at an early age, she would sit at a red folding table in her kitchen and paint masterpieces with her two younger sisters while her mom prepared dinner.  As she grew older, she spent long summer days exploring the sage hills of the peaceful Wenatchee Valley and drawing for endless hours.  Not much has changed.  Emily still paints pictures at her own kitchen table and loves to be outdoors amongst her Savior's creations, although now she gets to experience the magic of wooly bear caterpillars and playing in the ocean's waves through the eyes of her two young sons, Michael and Jack. Nature and the innocence of childhood are constant sources of inspiration for Emily's work.  As a self-taught artist, she has developed a unique illustrative style, blending colored pencils and watercolors to create her art.  Emily and her incredibly supportive husband, John, live with their two boys in Seattle, Washington.  Visit her at www.emilyburnette.blogspot.com.
