Great little book written by my best friend! Feb 11, 2004
My daughter and I just finished reading this wonderful book for her bedtime story. Well actually, she read most of it. The pages just seem to come to life as you read all about Baliey's fears and his questions about God. You're drawn into the mind of the child and how he percieves the world around him and all the fun and silly questions that make children so wonderful. This really helps to put into perspective the thought process of the young reader. But don't worry, the kids love all the fantastic, FULL COLOR pictures and the way it reads so easily! We read it twice!
It was a treat for me to admire the FULL COLOR pages of Bailey the bear and his Dad, as I remember these characters being drawn as we grew up. To see them in this wonderfully illustrated book makes the characters almost real. I watched them grow up and evolve along the way, Just as I watch my own children grow today. I could very easily see this as the next animated cartoon series to hit the video shelves.
If you want a easy read for bedtime, with lots of fun, FULL COLOR pictures to keep the little one's interest, this is the book for you! The rhyming rhythm keeps the reader flowing, as well as teaching about God's infinite love for his children and a Dad's love for his son. Written using analogys that a child would understand and can relate too, Philip, masterfully conveys the lesson of God's love and protection for the young readers. Did I mention the FULL COLOR pictures, too!
My daughter and I, both, throughly enjoyed this book, and she can't wait till we visit again to get her book autographed. SSSush! She still thinks the book was written for her, but that's our little secret. She especially loved all the detail in the FULL COLOR pictures!
Knockout job, Phillip! We can't wait for the next one. I wholeheartly reccommend this book, not just because he's my bestfriend, It's just too great a book to pass up. Am I biased? You bet! Will you enjoy this book as we have? You better believe it! So stop punishing yourself, and go buy this book! You'll not be disappointed and your little ones will thank you too! By the way, Did I forget to mention all the FULL COLOR pictures! :-)
