'Ten little toes right from the start Make footprints on your mommy's heart!' The timeless journey of a mother and son is poignantly captured in the story of a boy's growth from childhood to fatherhood. From birth to football games to college graduation, a mother reminds her son that life is filled with possibilities and that God has a plan for him---whatever he grows up to be!

WHATEVER YOU GROW UP TO BE is the sweetest collectable book ever to read to your baby boy, or grandson when he’s growing up. This is a cuddle book, where you sit by side, discussing the story, reading the verses, and studying the pictures.

If you are looking for a sweet baby gift that the mother-to-be will cherish, then WHATEVER YOU GROW UP TO BE would be the perfect gift—for a boy. Ms. Kingsbury also has one out especially for girls, called Always Daddy’s Princess.

Pick up a copy of WHATEVER YOU GROW UP TO BE, or Always Daddy’s Princess for your little prince or princess. $15.99 hardcover with dustcover. 32 pages. Ages 4-8, but good for younger babies as will, if you read and cuddle. 5 stars.

'God gave each puppy a gift of its own, and PUPS OF THE SPIRIT is how they are known!' Peanut is patient, and Kay is so kind. Each of these nine loveable puppies has a special trait to help them grow closer to God. From love and joy to patience and kindness, children will have fun learning about the fruits of the spirit with these playful and cuddly companions.

This is a fun, delightful book for 4-8 year olds. My eight year old was fascinated by it, and enjoyed learning about the fruits of the spirit, as well as looking at the beautiful illustrations.

This is a great book to teach young children about the fruits of the spirit, illustrating them in ways they can understand. If you have a favorite child/grandchild ages 4-8 then definitely consider picking up a copy of PUPS OF THE SPIRIT. They’ll love it. $15.99. 32 pages, hardcover with dustcover. 4.5 stars.
