The Blessing Of Friendship (Mary Engelbreit)
Mary Engelbreit has got to be one of my favorite artists and authors. I have been collecting her books since I changed my name to Jensen (as in I got married). LOL! My MIL has collected them for years and so graciously gave me one of Mary Engelbreit's books a long time ago. After that day I have been gathering them for myself. That's why I was ecstatic when I saw that she was coming out with a new book and I get to review it. It is called The Blessing Of Friendship and let me tell you it is a blessing to me. The pictures are the sweetest and the quotes and verses from the bible are amazing.
Here is a description of the book:
"The Blessings of Friendship, created by New York Times bestselling author and artist Mary Engelbreit, is a playful and poignant treasury of poetry, Bible verses, and quotes that celebrate the joy of friendship. Children will learn from timeless sayings and poems what it means to be a friend - helping, encouraging, listening, sharing with, and loving one another. Colorful and whimsical illustrations bring these words to life, as children learn the value of friendship. Verses from the Bible give us instruction on putting others above ourselves, loving each other, and being kind to one another. This book will make you smile with each turn of the page, remembering old friends and new friends alike."
I am truly going to enjoy having this book to look at when I need to smile. And, it comes in one of my favorite colors...red! Also, my MIL's favorite color. I may buy her one for Christmas...ooops! Let the cat out of the bag. Pick up a copy for yourself if you are a fan of Mary Engelbreit's. If you are not a fan or don't know who she is please go get a copy anyway. You will become a fan very quickly. She makes you feel like times are more simple and sweet.
