We've all heard the saying "It's better to give
than to receive," but for children this can be a difficult lesson to learn.
In Mrs. Twiggenbotham Goes to a Party,
Mrs. Twiggenbotham teaches her granddaughter Felicity first hand that
"God's greater joy is in giving."
This hardcover book, released in June 2003 by Kregel publications, tells the
story of an evening that changes little Felicity's perspective on the many
blessings she has in her life. As the story begins, Felicity is
passing a quiet evening at Grandmother's, and is lamenting the fact that she
has fallen in love with a new doll she's seen in the window. Her
parents have informed her that she may have the doll (the sixth in the
series and one she feels she just must have), but that she will have to wait
until her birthday.
Grandma/Mrs. Twiggenbotham, involves Felicity in baking a
special dessert for a needy family nearby and the two set off to deliver the
dessert. As the evening progresses, Felicity learns that indeed "God's
greater joy is in giving."
As a bonus, the book features two special recipes that
young readers can prepare and enjoy with the help of their families.
Mrs. Twiggenbotham Goes to a Party
will help young children to recognize and count their blessings, and to
look for opportunities to give and share with others.
