Six-year-old Alice would rather get toys than a book any day. But when her grandfather explains that this book is different, Alice begins to see why their first-edition Book of Mormon is so special to her family. Set in the early 1900s, this charming story is the perfect picture book to read with your family as you gather round the Christmas tree.
I read this to my two youngest children, and I've seen my older children reading it as well. When I asked my 4 year old what her favorite part was she said, "The cookies!" Not really the point of the story, but she really did love the illustrations. They were very cute and very well done.
The author did a great job with little Alice. Just like my children, she was here, there, and everywhere. Eventually the story got told and little Alice was able to understand and get excited about this wonderful book. Coming from an adult perspective, there seemed to be a lot missing and the story was very simple. However, like I said, my two littlest didn't seem to have any trouble following what the story was about.
I sat down and read this book with my two youngest. The book has cute illustrations and my kids seemed to enjoy the story. I had grand intentions of reading it with my two older kids as well, but that hasn't happened yet. I am happy to add this to my kids' library though.
