The Cross and the KEEP OUT SIGN: a ★★★★★ kids’ book review


thoughts, prayers & songs:

His story is beautifully illustrated by Catalina Echeverri’s stunning illustrations. On the first day I got this book, I already read it several times with my kids. It opened up a great conversation with my eight year old about what the Bible tells about sin and we loved talking about what was happening in the pictures.
