Review of children's book The Christian Alphabet by Tracy Sands

The Christian Alphabet Book    Book and synposis from Authors website:

Synopsis

Do you know your Christian ABC’s?

The Christian Alphabet Book by Tracy Sands is a unique, visual, and enjoyable way to learn the basics of Christianity. “Love”, the dove from above, guides you from A to Z with special Biblical lessons of love for all ages.

What is more important than a firm foundation of faith?

Similar to learning to read from knowing the regular ABC’s, one will be inspired to know, love, and serve God by learning The Christian Alphabet.

Share the Gospel with your Children

Jesus told Peter, in the gospel of John, to “feed my lambs.” The Christian Alphabet Book will help all teachers of children feed their little lambs spiritually. Give those you love this book to help spread the Good News about God’s everlasting love and life.
The Christian Alphabet Book is more than just a children’s book. It is a book that families can cherish together while sharing its timeless messages that give Glory to God.


My Review:

This is a great book for children with beautiful illistrations.  It has practicle verses that children can understand.  It gives a simple defention of each word in the "Christian Alaphabet".  This book will give kids a firm foundation of faith.  Some examples "C" for Chris, "G" for God, "R" is for resurrection, and "V" is for victory.  This book would be a blessing to any child.  Great job Tracy.
I received a copy of this book for a virtual tour for Pump Up Your Books.

About the Author:



Christian artist, Tracy Sands, created The Christian Alphabet in 1999. Since then, The Christian Alphabet has adorned thousands of family rooms and baby rooms with her name art prints, and has marked special Bible passages with her bookmarks. Today, The Christian Alphabet continues to spread the Word. Here is the story of a Christian artist and how her story began…'

“It came from Him, not me. This is what happened:
The Lord inspired me in 1999 one evening at a church choir event. As I sat in the back row, listening to the awesome Christian music, in the dark, an incredible urge to draw came over me. Being an art teacher for 10 years, I had experienced this feeling before, but NEVER had it been so intense. I “happened” to have a pen in my pocket, but the only paper around was the program that I got as I walked in the door. In the empty space of the margins I sketched like crazy. I felt like I would pop if I didn’t get the ideas out of my brain right then! I will never forget that feeling. I had never felt so peaceful yet energized at the same time. God was just getting started with me! Over the course of 9 months we created this alphabet.
Each letter is educational and deep in meaning to me. In them you will find ancient and modern images used in the past 2000 years to express the Christian Faith. I have hopes of sharing all of the basic aspects of Christianity with those who really look into “The Christian Alphabet”. (There is a word in each letter and many symbols that you might find if you take the time to focus on them.)
Special thanks go to my husband, Albert, my mother, Elaine, and my sisters, Tammy and Jenn, for their help and encouragement; however; Jesus Christ is my true inspiration. Without Him, I could not have created ”The Christian Alphabet” as my form of sharing the gospel with you.”
