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 authorBRIANA KIRKWOOD WRIGHT started writing poetry and short stories as a creative outlet at the age of eight.  Later, she followed that passion and studied literature in English at the University of California, San Diego, graduating with a bachelor of arts degree.  A convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Briana feels What Is a Temple? is the result of an impression she received during the October 2013 general conference.  She hopes it will help her share a love of the temple with her sons, Anthony and Conrad.  Briana currently lives with her family in Foster City, California.  Connect with Briana at www.brianakwright.com.


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.

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
