    If ever a book can take you back to your childhood, for me, it’s this one. What childhood would be complete without “I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me” or “When I was sick and lay abed”? Well loved by generations of children, this 65 poem collection from Robert Louis Stevenson (composed when he was bedridden and sick with tuberculosis) recalls the joys of childhood – swinging, playacting as pirates, and entering the land of story-books. This oversized hardback version must be the best ever; beautiful, detailed, colorful illustrations by Tasha Tudor reflect an older, more carefree lifestyle. Definitely a book to cherish and to make a part of your young child’s memories. 69 pgs. hb ~ Janice

    It is rare to find a book with stories of characters that are full of truth and Godly virtue. This beautiful, 123 page, hardcover book is filled with four such stories. The Bird's Nest is a story of a poor shepherd boy who refuses to show a lovely bird's nest to the crowned prince because of a promise he made to a friend. In the end, his noble character is rewarded and his morals are passed on to the next generation. The next story, The Diamond Ring, features a correspondence of letters between an orphaned brother and sister who by God's grace are taken care of immeasurably better than they ever could have hoped for due to their kind nature and gracious deeds. The Mother's Gift tells of how a gifted Bible reunited a brother and sister who had been separated under unforeseen circumstances. These three stories by Christoph Von Schmid are full of wisdom and truth in regards to Christian character, and the lessons within will greatly bless your family. However, there is one more jewel within this book by an unknown author. The Boy Who Would Not Take a Shilling highlights a young boy who amazes all by his kind and upright nature. A wonderful book full of Christian principles for your whole family to enjoy. - elise
