Mother's Day Giveaway - Children's Storybook

When I went to the Christian Book Expo, I was surprised and pleased to discover that Wanda Brunstetter has recently written some children's books.

The Wisdom of Solomon: A Solomon Lapp and Friends Amish Storybook just came out in March, and it is a darling read-to-me storybook with delightful illustrations by Phil A. Smouse. You will enjoy snuggling with your little one as you read one of a dozen stories with such titles as Lazy Bones, Stretching the Truth, A True Friend, and Father Knows Best. The pages are colorful and inviting, and each story is accompanied by the corresponding verse from Proverbs which it illustrates.

How much trouble can one Amish boy stumble into at a barn raising. . .on the farm. . .or in the schoolhouse?

In this wonderfully written storybook, Solomon Lapp and his sister Sara learn many valuable life lessons amid the rolling hills of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. As the Lapps and their friends encounter dark dancing shadows, loose chickens, mud puddles, quilt-eating goats, and mischief-making siblings, they learn about God, prayer, refuge, brotherly love, courage, kindness, and more.

Quench your thirst for adventure and knowledge with Solomon Lapp and friends--where rivers of trouble overflow and wells of wisdom never run dry!

Wanda E. Brunstetter is a bestselling author Amish fiction and nonfiction. She lives with her husband in Washington State. Email Wanda at Wanda[at]wandabrunstetter[dot]com. You can also visit her to learn more at her website.
