From my 5-star Amazon book review: Gardens Are for Growing by Chelsea Tornetto surprised me. I thought the story would focus on the basics of a garden and it started out that way with a father and daughter planting seeds. But this book elevated the story, went much further than a simple garden primer. This is a book about family, about generations, about growing up—that was the surprise. This touching story shows a father growing old and his “little girl” leaving, seasons changing, and finally coming back again, this time with her own baby. Of course, they have to go to the garden. The illustrations by Hsulynn Pang have a lovely, old-fashioned, Americana quality, especially the one filled with fruits of the harvest, pumpkins, apples, pears, sunflowers. I am honored I was given access to a digital copy of this book to my review. I highly recommend it. –Amy Houts, author of Christian Q&A Book for Kids
Garden Are for Growing
After I received a copy of my new book, the Christian Q&A Book for Kids, which as a rainbow on the cover, I was amazed when a rainbow appeared in our backyard!
fter a LOT of hard work behind the scenes for the past several months, I'm so excited to finally announce that I have a new book coming out, Christian Q&A Book for Kids, releasing today(!) August 2, 2022.
My favorite part of writing Christian Q&A Book for Kids was asking my grandchildren what questions they had about God and the Bible. Jacob, age 8, asked a tough one. “How did Jesus come back to life?” I loved doing the research and reading the Bible to find the answer to Jacob’s question and over 100 others! I hope this book is a starting off place to foster discussion as well as deepen your child’s knowledge and faith.
One of the most challenging aspects of writing the Christian Q&A Book for Kids was answering the questions on a child's level. The book answers tough questions, but the target age group is 6-9 year olds. Although I've authored over 100 books for children, writing this was different. I tried to stay away from jargon words and imagined I was talking to my three grandchildren who (fortunately!) are in the target age group.
There are over 100 questions and answers in the Christian Q&A Book for Kids. Do you want to explain and discuss the Bible, God, and religion with the children in your life but don't know how to start? Then this book would be a valuable resource. To order, visit Amazon at: https://amzn.to/3zBo3Of
