Book Review - The Gift That I Can Give by Kathie Lee Gifford
The Gift That I Can Give is written by Kathie Lee Gifford and is illustrated by Julia Seal. It is published by Thomas Nelson.
First off, I just want to say, "Wow!" for such a wonderful children's book. The Gift That I Can Give is a picture book - not a lot of words but gorgeous pictures. The "story" is told in rhyme with illustrations that move the message along. What is the message? We all have a gift(s) that God gives us in order to use for His glory. In this book, the little girl is asking what her gift is, how will she know what that gift is.
The message is a beautiful one and not one based upon a "me" society. It is one of a giver's society. We all have gifts to use for the Kingdom. Those gifts are almost always to be used for others. The Gift That I Can Give illustrates that message very well for young children. I found it to be well-written and beautifully illustrated - a book that I would want to keep for my future grandchildren.
