Across the land,
Across the sea,
We will always be.
Celebrate the joy, laughter, and love of friendship in this poignant collection by world-renowned author and artist Mary Engelbreit. With characteristic whimsy and nostalgic warmth, Mary's illustrations playfully bring to life timeless sayings, poems, and Bible verses that teach the true meaning of friendship and show the blessings of a life surrounded by love.
I have long admired the work of Mary Engelbreit, from her prints to her fabrics and her calendars, I have filled my home with her cheery images. The characters, especially the children, are just darling and the color choices add to the delightful scenes that she presents.
In The Blessings of Friendship Treasury, Mary combines her artistic talent with lovely poetry and sayings from well known authors as well as the Bible. Each picture and accompanying verse is a dedication to the enduring power of friendship.
This would be a lovely addition to your child's library to encourage friendly traits that will last a lifetime and produce an abundance of friends. As an added bonus I think it will also spark their artistic talents.
