February 25, 2009

I received a copy of the book “This is the Day!” by Nancy White Carlstrom. The illustrations are beautiful and the message is great. Not only does it talk about many of God’s beautiful creations, it also teaches about how to take care of these beautiful creations. I love looking through the book and seeing the beautifully illustrated pictures and my kids love the picture of the Orca Whale on the cover. The message is clear and simple. The copy I had to review and have to giveaway is in hardback format – great for little hands to hold!
