From Jews to Christians in Ancient America by David Johnson
The Book of Mormon relates the record of Lehi and his family who left Jerusalem in 600 BCE (before the Babylonian invasion and destruction of the Temple in 586 BCE) and journeyed to the New World, or “Promise Land.”
After relating how Joseph Smith received and translated these records (the Book of Mormon), this book will identify with authors, give an outline of the contents of each of the fifteen books, (separating religious content form the secular), and identify the various groups of people referred to in the Book of Mormon.
The various records that make up the book are also explained. Several chapters are devoted to summarizing what the book of Mormon says about such topics as Jesus Christ, God, salvation and human nature, and others.
“David’s book is educational and entertaining. His explanations, graphs, and timelines make it easy to understand as well as give any reader a better understanding of the early Americans. It could easily become a good textbook for anyone with an interest in this time period.”
– David Swenson
Quack! A Fowl Love Story by Paul Burton
Quack! is a touching allegory written in rhyming verse about a little girl who struggles to understand the meaning of life and love. She befriends an unusual duck who unexpectedly changes her life. Readers of all ages will relate to this universally emotional and inspirational story about love and relationships.
“Really, just a delightfully told and illustrated story about a little girl discovering that sometimes life just “is what it is” and need not be completely overthought. Elena learns that it’s okay to let go, trust her instincts, and love freely-with an insanely adorable duck showing her the way. Burton’s charming style, in both his verse and illustrations, makes Quack! a book my kids and I will reach for over and over-discovering something that resonates anew each time.”
– Julie, M.
“Paul Burton’s warm and charming story Quack gently reminds us all, children and adults alike, of the magic we can find when we trust … in ourselves, in friendship, and in love. It is a story of self-discovery, letting go of fear, and surrendering a sometimes desperate need to understand and control everything. The story’s simple truth is accompanied by exquisitely rendered and brilliantly arresting black-and-white illustrations. Burton juxtaposes his elegant linear draftsmanship – his extraordinary assurance of line – with the quirky, charming, and playful characters depicted, and the result is truly unique. This is a book you and your children can spend hours discovering and enjoying visually, and the simple, lyrical rhyme of the story will make it a pleasure to real aloud, over and over again. It is, truly, a timeless book.”
