A Whimsical Way to Share the Most Important Message


About the Book:

Kids love to dream about what they might do when they grow up: jobs they might have, places they might go, people they might meet. And parents and caregivers love to encourage and support them.

But for Christian parents, their greatest aspiration for their children, their dream of all dreams, is that whatever their kids do and wherever they go, they will love and follow Jesus.

As children embark on life’s journey with all their potential and aspirations, express to them your biggest dream with this beautiful illustrated rhyming children’s book.

As well as teaching children about the only thing that really matters in life, this book also reminds parents that telling their kids about Jesus is more important than anything else.

Makes a wonderful gift for a wide range of children–from 3 year olds to 8 year olds and even beyond–for birthdays, Christmas or graduation.

“Wherever You Go, I Want You To Know captures so well the heart of any Christian parent. What matters most is not what our kids grow up to do, but Who they grow up to know. This is a book parents will want to read often to their children; and the whimsical rhymes and inviting illustrations will make it a favorite for kids too. Get this book for the youngsters—or the young parents—in your life!”
