Item description for Birthday Chickens by Shirley Kurtz & Cheryl A. Benner...

The Boy is back. Along with his chaotic, high-spirited family. Making their own fun and trouble once again. This time a host of chicks is bestowed on the boy for his birthday. Their growth and care and eventual egg-laying consume his attention and imagination. But this is never a private venture! The rest of the family joins the unpredictable project--rescuing chicks, figuring out what to feed them, gathering their eggs without getting pecked. Birthday Chickens is the third collaboration for Kurtz and Benner, who earlier created The Boy and the Quilt and Applesauce. All three books feature colorful stories followed by projects to do with children which relate to the stories. Contains a series of recipes (following the story) for making egg dishes with children, as well as the Boy's birthday cake.

Publishers Description
Loss Forgiveness and Restoration.The Face of Christ illustration and the accompanying story that has changed lives all around the globe.First it is a truelife story of an advertising executive an artist and a pastor Joe Castillo and the way God changed him. It also tells of the many lives touched by this simple illustration.Done before a live audience the very first time it had a powerful impact on those who watched. This motivated the artist to reproduce it in pen ink prints. As an artist Joes struggle to make a living was suddenly compounded by having his wife diagnosed with cancer. They had no insurance to cover the mounting debt but at an opportune time a friend offered to reproduce the artwork on marble plaques and pay royalties. The sales of the plaques were amazing surely this was the answer to all their financial problems But the story seems to grind to a halt. The friend refuses to pay royalties on the artwork that is selling world wide and Joe loses his wife to cancer. It becomes a daily struggle to forgive the man who was profiting from his artwork and overcome the bitterness at the loss of his wife. The plaques seem to show up everywhere compounding his anger and resentment. For Joe it became a bitter symbol of everything that had gone wrong.If you have ever struggled with forgiveness. If some events in your life just dont make sense God can use this artwork and the story that goes with it to help you put the pieces together.
