Rose Publishing’s How We Got the Bible is a 189-page book from Timothy Paul Jones that shows where the Bible came from and why it contains the books that it does.

Then it has a devotion (around a page or more). The devotions talk about what the name or...Read More

She talks about the missionary life and...Read More
Thank You, God, for Puppies by Mary Manz Simon and illustrated by Tammie Lyon is an adorable children’s book. Both writer and illustrator made a great team. It’s not a story but a series of rhymes about kids and their puppies. It has short, easy to understand words and few per page. So it’s easy for your four year old cousin to remember and read to you over and over. I appreciate the diversity in both kids and dogs in the pictures. I also appreciate how thick the cardboard is.
