Review & Giveaway: Guess Who's in the Book of Mormon by Molly McNamara Carter, illustrated by Katie Payne

Heidi Reads... Guess Who's in the Book of Mormon by Molly McNamara Carter, illustrated by Katie Payne

My rating: 5 stars / It was amazing


Learn all about the prophets and heroes in the Book of Mormon! This colorful picture book uses a simple question-and-answer format to help children discover who built a boat, who saved the king’s sheep, and who climbed up on a wall to tell the people to repent. An easy-to-read introduction to scripture stories that’s fun for the whole family!

My Review

What a cute book! I instantly fell in love with the illustrations which are colorful and dynamic. The questions and answers are rhyming and share the importance of what each Book of Mormon figure did and learned from their experiences. I loved that Abish is included so there is a female as well as male role models. This book is fun to read and is a great way for children to remember stories that teach valuable lessons. My daughters loved it and we read it at bedtime and bring it to church on Sundays. This book would be a perfect gift for a family or child!

About Illustrator Katie Payne

I've been drawing since the day I could hold a pencil, and started teaching myself to draw digitally in 2003. Upon finishing high school in 2008, I studied at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and Design in Washington DC for two years before finally transferring to Brigham Young University and obtaining my BFA in illustration. After living in New York City for four years, I now reside in Bountiful, Utah with my husband Andrew Payne. My work has been included in Spectrum 24 and also gallery shows. I have illustrated children's books and board games and I am excited about my future in both of these areas.
