From Amazon:

Multiple Award-Winning book series helps to build a strong, foundational relationship with Jesus, while teaching love, and compassion for others! Melissa likes to brag that she can swim the fastest, climb the highest, and has the best of everything. Corey finds her crying in the sand box with her broken shovel, the only toy she had. They all chip in treasure coins for her birthday present. Melissa prays, giving thanks to God for her friends, and learns they are more important than all the toys in the sea.  Lee Ann Mancini and Dan Sharp have created an underwater world that explodes with color, drawing the children into the captivating story.

National Indie Excellence Awards Finalist, Readers Favorite Award.

My Thoughts:

I love the cover of this book!  The vibrant colors are eye catching, quickly grabbing a little ones attention, begging them to enter the inner pages of the book.  The wonderful illustrations are continued throughout the story, adding visual appeal to those that may be too little to fully comprehend the text.

Speaking of the text...the puffer fish is the perfect "character" to play the main role of the bragger.  Often when one thinks of a "bragger", that person is thought to be someone that continually builds themselves up, making them seem bigger and better than they really are.  Hence, the puffer fish.

Whether for your own children or as a gift, this is a great book to gently help spread the word of Jesus to others.  Teaching life's lessons in a fun and entertaining way is so subtle with this book that many children will not even realize they are learning while listening. 

I give this book 5 stars and can't wait to share it with others!
