Don't you enjoy meeting new people? Especially if a friend introduces you to them. There is a mutual connection that makes it more meaningful.
Well today on our blog we are introducing you to another childrens author's book. Her name is Lee Ann Mancini and, like us, she has a series of books for kids. She recently came out with a new one. This makes nine books in her Adventures of the Sea Kids series. Her newest book is titled Forever with Jesus. Our family has read several of her books and today we want to take some time to tell you about this one.
This is a colorfully illustrated book that addresses an issue not many childrens books do - death. I would recommend her book to anyone who wants to have a conversation with their kids about how to handle death and answer their questions about death.
Lee Ann has done a great job crafting the story carefully so that young readers will understand a hard topic and have a sense of peace. The dialogue between the kids and the grandparents (or should I say guppies and groupers) does not make light of death nor does it diminish the sadness of it.
The sea theme detail throughout the book, including the front cover with the seashells on the chair, are great. Details like this show the author is sincere in keeping their message and their brand consistent. Finding the hidden cross in the pages of the book is always fun to do. It teaches attention to detail, counting, and is a good exercise.
For parents and teachers who want to take a book beyond just reading, Lee Ann delivers. Her website includes additional activities for kids to do that correspond with her different books. You can check out this book, Forever with Jesus, and her entire series at www.GLMpublishing.net.
She also has a You Tube intro to the book that you can find here:
Because I have to let you know, the publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through BookCrash.
