A Little Girl After God's Own Heart

by Elizabeth George and Judy Luenebrink

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Beautifully illustrated and with all of the girly frills, A Little Girl After God's Own Heart is an attractive and sweet story that is sure to reach every little girl's heart. Characteristics of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control are the focus of the story.

Elizabeth George brings the meaning of those traits to life in a poetic form, and by using practical illustrations and catchy rhymes that a child can easily memorize. Short prayers are inserted where they fit and demonstrations of how to better handle situations are highlighted. For example: (on gentleness) "When things go wrong, take a step back—calm down, be thoughtful, and please, don't attack!” These are words of wisdom to live by. I recommend this book as an instruction guide for children as young as 18 months old, and up through about second grade. – Michelle Sutton, Christian Book
