This is an adorable book. It has become a family favorite around our house, and is especially requested when one of the little ones does get a boo boo.
In this book there are all kinds of baby animals, and each baby has a mother animal with them in the picture consoling them and making things better.
The illustrations are wonderfully done, and vivid.
For children boo boo's are a serious ordeal. No matter if it's a paper cut or a scraped knee it's all equally traumatic sometimes. This book helps show kids that not only can Mommy's help boo boo's feel better, but God can to. It's a great lesson to show kids that no matter if it's big or small God is there for us through it all. It's a comforting book to read if your child has fell and scraped a knee, gotten a paper cut, or just wants to read it for fun.
I definitely recommend this book to all parents with little ones. They will really love it. I enjoy reading it, and my three children love it as well. This book is definitely geared toward babies, toddlers, and preschool children. But it's something that can be enjoyed by all. My 7 year old even likes this book, and we enjoy reading it to our children.
It's a board book so even your tiniest little one can grab hold and help turn the pages, explore the pictures, and enjoy this book all around.
I definitely will be checking out more from the author.

::From the back of the book::
Ever wonder what your calling is? Do you feel burdened for the nations? if you are willing to follow where god leads you, the road ahead may be challenging, but it will be well worth it if you do not give up. In For the Joy Set Before Us, Erica Fye invites you to journey with her to get a glimpse into the life of a missionary, and to offer insight into what God may have in store for your life.
For me this was a bit of a hard book to get into. I felt the book to be more "preachy" than anything which is probably why I struggled to really get into it. Regardless I still stuck through the novel, and I'm glad I did. I just wish there would have been more of the author's personal thoughts and feelings on her experiences rather than preaching.
This would be a fantastic book choice if you've ever considered being a missionary, or even if you are just curious as to what a real missionary really does. As a missionary herself the author is very knowledgeable on this subject.
The author definitely does not sugar coat anything. She tells about the good times, and the bad. She tells about the sacrifices one must make, and how to handle difficulties. She even talks about how she survived malaria and typhoid.
In addition to wishing the author had included more personal experiences and thoughts during her missions, I also wish there was more about what she loved about her missions. It is good to give the readers both the hard truths as well as all of the joys. Especially when talking about being a missionary.
