Book Review: Your Core Written by Callie Grant and Illustrated by Missi Jay

Balls have a core. Apples do, too. The Earth has a core. So do you! Everyone has an inner place made by God for welcoming Him and meeting with Him. Graham Blanchard’s newest Absorb book, inspired by Ephesians 3:14-19, appeals to the youngest readers with simple text and engaging scenes to convey an often difficult concept to grasp—even for many adults. In the Graham Blanchard book collection, Absorb books connect information about God with a child’s inner life. Children assimilate on a personal level who God is and how they are made to be with Him, trust Him and love Him. 

About the authors:  Callie Grant launched Graham Blanchard Inc. in 2013 to create children’s books for growing up in God, working with a network of artists, parents, pastors, teachers, and children. The company is the culmination of her experience in the publishing industry, working for companies like Scholastic and Dorling Kindersely, paired with a strong calling to help children know God’s love and nurture their families’ faith through reading together.

Missi Jay has been recognized nationally by Print Magazine and the Addy Awards, and in 2008 received the Big Wig Award for best illustrator by the Austin Advertising Federation. She has illustrated six children's books and designed an official Texas state license plate to benefit Texas CASA, which assists abused and neglected children. She lives in Austin with her husband and young daughter.

My Review:  This book is full of colourful pictures and paints a beautiful picture of your core and Gods love.  It would be a great gift to a family with little ones as it introduces your core in a very simplistic way.  The pictures are bright and fun which will easily capture your child's attention.  The words aren't too difficult and are thought provoking as to open dialogue with a young child about God s love or your core.  I love that the pages are hardboard and not paper...this ensures this book will likely survive past one child and can be shared for generations.

Views expressed are those of Two Children and a Migraine and not influenced in anyway.  A book was supplied for review purposes and no compensation was received for this post.
