My son is beginning to count the days till Christmas. He can't wait to open up his presents laying underneath the tree. He asked me a couple of times if he could open up one gift so I let him open the one that his godparent gave him. We finished shopping for gifts last weekend. I will do some more wrapping tomorrow and that's about it.
Anyway, some of the gifts that the kids are receiving is books. I always get them some books to read especially that they are off from school during the holiday. It is important to keep them busy during the cold days and get their mind working. I got my son two books from Wisdom Tales. First is this President Lincoln book. I have mentioned before that my son is very interested in reading books about past US presidents so I thought this book is a perfect one for him to keep him inspired and motivated.
This book is coming out in February of 2016. I got one of the advance copies which I am very thankful because it is perfect for Christmas gift. I don't know much about President Lincoln since I wasn't born here so I read this first before I wrapped it. It is very interesting to reas a book about a famous man and this book, President Lincoln: From Log Cabin to White HOuse is such an inspiring book to read of any people of age. I love the illustration of this book, I am sure my son would be delighted to read this.
Here's a summary of what you can expect about this book:
From a small log cabin in Kentucky to the steps of the White House, Abraham Lincoln rose from humble beginnings to the very height of prominence and prestige. Leading America through the momentous events of the Civil War, the Emancipation Proclamation, and the abolition of slavery, the story of “Honest Abe” is one that all children should know. President Lincoln: From Log Cabin to White House is not only a powerful teaching tool, but an entertaining and age-appropriate introduction to a man who has become one of the most influential and admired presidents of the United States.
Another book that I would love my son to read is the story of Saint Anthony the Great. This is a great book to get inspiration from if you are feeling unhappy and sometimes jealous of other people's accomplishment. This man became a saint because of the sacrifices that he did. He gave up all of his material possesions and live a life that is meaningful and helpful to other people.
This book shows how hard it is to do what is right all the time but it is possible if you you really try your best. It also a testament that life is full of twist and turns, so many temptations will come along your way even igf you are trying to do what is right.
Here's what you can expect from this book:
Saint Anthony the Great tells the story of the father of Christian monasticism, who lived in the Egyptian desert just two hundred and fifty years after Jesus’ lifetime. This beautifully illustrated book will capture the attention of young readers and help teach them about Anthony’s struggle to acquire a pure heart. Here is a timeless story about the victory of good over evil, inside us and around us.
