Double Review: Blessing the Nephite Children and The Holy Ghost by Catherine Christensen

Heidi Reads... Blessing the Nephite Children by Catherine Christensen & Jay Fontano

My rating: 4 stars / I really liked it


Snuggle up with your kids and learn about Jesus's visit to the Nephites. This colorful board book is perfectly designed for little fingers and small attention spans. Experience the beauty of Christ's personal love in the Book of Mormon with your little ones and come to see the ways the Savior reaches out to them today.

My Review

This is an adorable little book with such a sweet message. My three year old absolutely loves it and we've read it over and over again. The words are simple enough for a toddler to understand, but the message is powerful. I'm not a fan of the font chosen for the text, but other than that I think this is the perfect book for a child to learn more about Jesus and His love for all people and especially children.

Heidi Reads... The Holy Ghost: Discovering Your Extraordinary New Gift by Catherine Christensen & Jane Delve

My rating: 5 stars / It was amazing


Get to know the Holy Ghost, from baptism on! This engaging book provides fill-in-the-blank stories, coloring pages, and other fun activities for your kids to help get them ready to receive the Holy Ghost and rely on Him for the rest of their lives. Come to understand and feel the Spirit, one of the greatest gifts from God.

My Review

This is a great activity book for children preparing for baptism and confirmation, as well as those who already have been. My nine year old really enjoys reading and doing the activities in this book on Sundays. They are challenging enough to keep her attention while still being age-appropriate. There are quite a few pages and I feel like it will keep her entertained for a long time and help reinforce the gospel principles she learns in our home and at church.
