Storybook Mentors...grown-up wisdom from children's classics

This writer introduces you to beloved storybook characters and helps you discover deeper truths in these classic tales. She says, " When you boil all our knowledge down and distill it into simple truths, the lessons we learned as little girls have not been improved upon. Jesus tells us, 'Become like children.' Perhaps it is only through the perception of a child that we understand with the heart and know without question that we are precious to our Father."

1. Anne of Green Gables
2. A Little Princess
3. Heidi
4. Pippi Longstocking
5. Pollyanna
6. Charlotte's Web
7. The Little Engine That Could

10. The Velveteen Rabbit

She quotes Psalm 103:2-5 on her dedication page:
Bless the Lord, O My Soul, and forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives...
Who heals...
Who redeems...
Who crowns...
Who satisfies...
...So that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

I will not take the time to post these stories, even though I have some on my other bookcase blog. This is a wonderful book that was published in 2001. I wrote her and told her about the postings of those stories on my blog...she emailed such a sweet sincere note.
