Guest Review from Donna Cline
What I think you should know:
God is Coming by Maggie Philpot is an Advent Journey for Children and Families. It is illustrated by Michael Livesay-Wright. It has 25 different poems and pictures. The Appendix features scripture that aligns with each day and includes a few questions for discussion.
What I think about this book:
This book would make a great addition to any Advent tradition. Each day contains a short poem and a beautiful picture, which allows it to be used with families with a large variety of ages. The rhyming words help capture the attention of young children and are beautiful enough for adults to appreciate and enjoy. I love that the author included scripture and questions in the appendix so that families can take each day farther if that is what is a good fit for their family. I look forward to reading this book with my family for many years to come.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.
About the Author
Maggie Philpot wrote her first children’s story when she was in middle school (a story about an egg named Eggbert) and she has been dreaming up stories ever since. She lives in Fort Worth with her spectacular husband (whom she calls Husband), her two precocious children, and a rather ridiculous dog, Tucker. She is passionate about anything and anyone who attempts to make beauty, order, and meaning in this crazy world. The simple act of writing is one way to do just that.
