Blog Tour - LDS Children's Books



 Today I'm going to talk about a couple of the newest LDS Children's books to be out for your reading enjoyment. Let's start with Blessing the Nephite Children.

About the book: Snuggle up with your kids and learn about Jesus’s visit to the Nephites. This colorful board book is perfectly designed for little fingers and small attention spans. Experience the beauty of Christ’s personal love in the Book of Mormon with your little ones and come to see the ways the Savior reaches out to them today.

My review: I really enjoyed reading this book to our 2 year-old! I loved the way that the words were easy to understand, even for someone that young. The pictures are adorable and I loved that the final message of the book is just how much Jesus loves the children and especially the child that you're reading the book to. My little one seemed to love the book as much as I did, even getting a little upset when I removed it from his room. That's got to be one of my favorite things as a mom, seeing our kids grow and learn and love many of the same things that I do!

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

Next up is The Holy Ghost.

About the book: Get to know the Holy Ghost, from baptism on! This engaging book provides fill-in-the-blank stories, coloring pages, and other fun activities for your kids to help get them ready to receive the Holy Ghost and rely on Him for the rest of their lives. Come to understand and feel the Spirit, one of the greatest gifts from God.

My review: This book is simply adorable! I love the way it's like a coloring book, but it teaches about the Holy Ghost. There are places for children to finish pictures, write about themselves and things they like, games for them to play and advice from our prophets and church leaders about how they can best use the gift of the Holy Ghost in their lives. There is even a cute comic book for the kids to read near the end of the book! I love the cute illustrations in this one. It's just a fun book. Perfect for those preparing themselves for baptism, or for those who are learning to use the gift of the Holy Ghost. I think that some of this is even a great reminder for those of us who have already been baptized and just need a refresher. I can't wait to use it in our family's Family Home Evening lessons!

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 …

Blog Tour - Love and Fat Free Cheese

About the book: Fat-free cheese is okay—unless you’ve tasted real cheese. Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

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&…
