This book is one I buy and give often. It is about the reality of God written by Donald Miller while he was a young man. He’s funny, real and fun to read. He tells his story of getting to know the Creator God of this Universe in plain talk.
The Lorax (upload.wikimedia....) "You're in charge of the last of the Truffula Seeds. And Truffular Trees are what everyone needs. Plant a new Truffula. Treat it with care. Give it clean water. And feed it fresh air. Grow a forest. Protect it from axes that hack. Then the Lorax and all of his friends may come back."
If your children don't know anything about this book or "A Light In The Attic" or just about ANY Shel Silverstein masterpiece, you need to get on it! This is a CLASSIC!!! (Favorite poem? "Sick"..."i cannot go to school today said little peggy ann mckay..."...YES I practically KNOW IT BY HEART! LOL...and "Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take The Garbage Out")
