The Vase of Many Colors
by Rachel Thoene
This lovely book that I received last week is a sweet parable about how God can take our ashes and create beauty. It is a book about restoration and love. It is more than a children's book, it is a family book. I can think of about four or five mommies that I know who would love to read this to their children--hmmm...gift ideas, anyone?
Rachel Thoene paints a picture that includes all of us, who sometimes get so caught up in the moment we become a little careless of the fagile things around us. And she also shows us a wise grandmother who is not so attached to the things of this world that she overlooks the precious heart of her granddaughter.
The bright and simple illustrations by Christian Cinder are sure to keep young listeners focused.
