My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received eBook from Publisher to Review
Genre: Children's Picture Book / Religion
Book Description: Defenders of the Family, assemble! God’s magnificent plan for us rests upon the strength of the family. In this engaging children’s book, discover the roles and teachings needed to unite your family, from devoted parents to extended members, all centered on the power of the gospel. Help your children see their families as they can be: incredible, empowered, eternal followers of Jesus.
My thoughts: In today's world it is important for families to share their beliefs on the nature of family. This book takes a look at the the LDS beliefs of the Plan of Salvation and the place that families have in that plan. It is a cute way for parents to sit down with children and discuss their beliefs.
This book is written and illustrated as a comic book. It is easy to follow and opens a forum for discussing why we have families and how to defend the sanctity of family. It showed many different kinds of families and how each person has a treasured place.
This book is based off of religious beliefs.
