Book Review: Baptism & Boomerangs

Baptism and Boomerangs blog tourAbout the book:
Baptism brings us soaring back—just like a boomerang—into the arms of our loving Heavenly Father! With colorful artwork, a fun story, and insightful analogies, this book helps parents and children discuss the importance of our first crucial covenant in God’s plan of happiness. Entertaining and uplifting, it makes a great gift for all your favorite eight-year-olds.

About the author:
Sherrie Gavin was born and raised in upstate New York, USA. Always looking for romance, adventure, and with a love of writing, she travelled to Australia and fell in love with a true Aussie bloke named Bruce. ‘Sruth! They married and began adventuring together, joined by two beautiful daughters who are the loves of their lives. Sherrie has been lucky enough to have contributed to Linda Hoffman Kimball’s Relief Society anthologies and The Exponent II. She also thinks that everyone should try throwing a boomerang at least once.

About the illustrator:
Tatiana Lawton was born in Brisbane, Australia, but was raised up north on the sunny beaches of the Sunshine Coast. She was born with a love for life, art, and storytelling, and her pusuit to study a degree of film and animation came as no surprise to family and friends. Moving back to Brisbane, Tatiana completed her four-year degree. Since finishing her degree, she has been freelancing as an artist, contributing to short films as a concept artist, character designer, and storyboard artist. Tatiana has drawn her inspiration for this book from her Australian heritage and her appreciation for eternal families.

From Reidhead Randomness:

Baptism & Boomerangs is a great book to help children understand baptism a little more through a fun object lesson.  Set in Sydney, Australia, it does a great job reminding kids that there are children all around the world that get baptized.  It has cute little humorous spots, and darling art and pictures that children will like.  It also shows that you need to have patience and perseverance.  It is a great book for any age, but especially the young ones that will be getting baptized in the next few years!

I received a copy of this book in order to write my review, however all opinions expressed are my own.
