Book Review: Forever You

Forever You: A Book About Your Soul and Body is geared to children in the age range of 4-8.  The book teaches youngsters about the joys of being a human with a boy and an immortal soul.  It's a cheerfully illustrated book that will explain to children that they have soul and that their soul is in all that they are and all that they do.  The explanation is on a level that young children will easily be able to understand.

While this hardcover book is geared to the pre-K through second grade set, I think it's actually quite appropriate for children in the toddler set provided the toddler you read it to doesn't have a penchant for tearing pages.  [I'd actually really like to see a sturdy board book version of this book since I'm presently trying to protect the book from my toddler as I write this review.]  The story is comprised of short sentences which makes it ideal for little ones with short attention spans.  The illustrations for this book show a diverse group of children doing all sorts of activities that little ones will easily be able to relate to their own lives.  I can see using this book at home with young children to teach them about how God created each of us with a body and an immortal soul from the moment we first existed.  It's also a great book to read to children in a religious education class.  I haven't brought this book in to read to my kindergarteners yet, but it will be making an appearance very soon.  I suspect it will be a great jumping off point to discuss God's wonderful gift of a soul with the class.

I was provided with a review copy of Forever You by the publisher, Pauline Kids, in exchange for my honest review.  Visit Pauline Media for a sneak peek into this book.
