Enthusiastic Little Sister!

August 23rd, 2016 by Beth A. Lewis

Based on my experience in my role as Grandma Beth, I know that little brothers and sisters not only learn by following what their parents say and do, but are even more inclined to enthusiastically mimic older siblings! I received a cute email and photo from my friend, Sue Edison-Swift a couple of days ago. Three year old granddaughter, Sally, opened a box and excitedly exclaimed,”I got a BIBLE just like Walter!” It just doesn’t get any better than that!

Sue went on to share that “Walter, who will turn 5 in October, loves his Whirl Bible. The storybooks have all been read twice. Such a big hit!”

Thanks for passing on this terrific photo and story of siblings learning to read and love the Gospel together, Sue!

Are there little Sally’s and Walter’s you think would enjoy engaging and age-appropriate books and Bibles like these? ┬áIf so, you should encourage your congregation to sign up for our free Sparkhouse Family Book Fair! Registration ends September 21!
