BLOG TOUR: The Holy Ghost Discovering Your Extraordinary New Gift/Blessing the Nephite Children


ABOUT THE BOOK

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.

REVIEW        

For young children who have just been baptized this book makes a great gift.  The book explores the concept of who the Holy Ghost is, the difference between the influence of and the gift of the Holy Ghost and the many different roles the Holy Ghost has.  In addition to explaining basic doctrines about the Holy Ghost, there are activities and codes and scriptures as well as questions and memories for the child to record his/her thoughts.  Quotes from prophets and scripture story references and family home evening suggestions make this a great reference for family time as well as personal time.  Ideas for developing the gift, serving others, and following the commandments are also all included.  I think this makes for a great way to help children develop a better understanding of the Godhead and the Holy Ghost specifically.  I have only one rather minor quibble and that is the phrasing on one statement in the book where it states that the Holy Ghost appeared AS a dove when Jesus Christ got baptized.  I felt like this should say LIKE since that is the word that the Bible uses.  Other than that though I thought the book does a fine job of providing a multitude of ways for a young child to learn about the important roles and value of having the Holy Ghost in one's life.

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.
REVIEW

Blessing the Nephite Children is an adorable baby board book version of a story told in 3 Nephi from the Book of Mormon.  This book focuses on the love the Savior has for children everywhere and what the children during his visit to the American continent after his death experienced.  The illustrations are sweet and attractive.  This book makes for a great introduction to the Book of Mormon for young children.
