When I found out that this board book was coming my way I was full of pure delight! What perfect timing too as it is here just in time for AppleBlossom’s second birthday! A great addition to her shelf and a great way to talk more about her little sister who should arrive within the next few weeks… I love Lisa’s Christian Historical Fiction for adults, and I’m learning to love her Young Adult series too (in my TBR pile…). It is without explaination needed to say that I also have come to love her Children’s books in the God Gave Us series as well. We have almost all of them, and those that we do not have are on our wishlist.

What makes this one special (other than the fact that we did not have it yet) is that it is a board book as opposed to her others, which I would call picture books. This makes it so much more durable and snuggle worthy as my AppleBlossom loves to be in bed on her back and flip through a book (not that she’s ever seen Mama do such a thing…). This is the perfect size and the pictures as always are awesome. I’m so delighted to have this in our stash and highly recommend it to everyone!
