I know I have said it before but I have a huge soft spot for children’s books. I just can’t get enough. I guess that is why I ended up becoming a librarian. I probably have well over 100 children’s books in my house. However, not all children’s books are the same, some are written better than others or some have amazing illustrations and some are just bad and I sneak those to the garbage when the girls are sleeping.
Stella Strawberry: The Fruit of Love is a super cute book to share Christian values with your young kids. It is Strawberry Season down here in Florida so given that I am eating strawberries daily the illustrations are extra super cute to me. I like a book that has a nice flow so that young children can follow along without being bored. Big Sis enjoys following along while I read it to her.
Children’s book teaches values and love with playful fruit charactersCalifornia
children’s book author, Yira Jones has published the first of a planned
series of Christian children’s books with playful fruity characters who
teach God’s will. Her book Stella Strawberry: The Fruit of Love teaches children how to be loving people.
Yira’s goal is to show children a glimpse of a mighty God who loves us greatly and gently shapes our character and lives.Instead
of teaching traditional bible stories, she uses friendly fruit
characters to teach character building from a biblical perspective
(based on the fruits of the spirit ? love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control).By
using God’s word and giving it a fun rhythmic quality, Stella
Strawberry, will give children an understanding of how important it is
to be filled with this fruit of the spirit.
portion of the proceeds from the sale of each book will go to ZOE, a
non-profit organization that cares for orphans and rescues children from
human trafficking. Yira personally experienced
the impact this organization is making when she traveled to Chiang Mai,
Thailand to work with the orphans.
Yira Jones is the creator and author of the Fruity Friends books series. She has a Business degree from the University of Southern California and over a decade of Corporate Sales experience. She
was inspired to create this collection after a year-long bible study
she attended, which focused on the Fruits of the Spirit. She lives in Canyon Country, near Valencia, California.
Overall I thought this was a great children’s book for young children. Really nice illustrations with a nice Christian message. I believe that it is important to teach our children the importance of being a good person. I wish the author luck with her new book series!
