I have loved all three of the children's board books that I have read and reviewed by Bonnie Rickner Jensen to date. I pray that there are many more coming. My kids have loved them too (including my 18-year-old!). My family and I have given each of them a solid 5-star rating. The board books are just so God-honoring, sweetly written, and down-right adorable. A Very Thankful Prayer is no exception. A perfect book to snuggle up with your toddler, or your teen, to read during the Thanksgiving season. And who says it just has to be at Thanksgiving... we can enjoy it all throughout the year.Read More
The Noble Servant is a lovely medieval fairy tale romance. It has been said by other reviewers that The Noble Servant is reminiscent of The Goose Girl by the Brothers Grimm. I’ve not read the story so I can’t speak to that. I can say that The Noble Servant is a modern fairytale. I find in our two primary characters qualities that are reminiscent of Cinderella and the prince in the classic fairy tale Cinderella by Charles Perrault. The Noble Servant isn’t a copycat book by any measure though; it retains a distinctly unique style that is wholly Melanie Dickerson.Read More
God Loves Daddy & Me and it’s companion book God Loves Mommy & Me just bring a smile to my face. God Loves Daddy & Me points out positive attributes of a God honoring father loving his child as THE Father loves them both. Laura Watkins’ illustrations bring such light and adorableness to the story. The raccoon daddy and child are so cute! You’ll love that the child is not stated as being male or female so daddy and son or daddy and daughter work equally well.Read More
Mommy loves me so much! She cheers me up when I’m sad, she kisses my boo-boos, she sings me lullabies at bedtime, and she prays for me. I love Mommy, and God does too!
The Girl From the Train is an incredibly beautiful book. In many ways it touched me very similarly to Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See. It drew me in, made me smile and cheer, made me cry, made me angry.Read More
The Brontë Plot is full of texture and light. Like an old, faded, priceless antique photo the contrast is reduced but you are left with a feeling of curiosity mixed with wonder and awe. It is modern yet timeless; containing layers upon layers of rich descriptive dialogue.Read More
Little did I know how much valuable information I would find in the book that was applicable to me...a VERY happily married pastors wife.Read More
