"I Want To Be Baptized" - by Annalisa Hall & Corey Egbert - A Blog Tour~


I have always enjoyed reading children's books and looking for good stories for my grandchildren. I absolutely love this book: " I Want to be Baptized" by Annalisa Hall, illustrated by Corey Egbert. I would have loved to have had this book to explain the importance of baptism when I was preparing my own children.  As a Grandmother, I intend to share this book with my Grandchildren. 

Annalisa did a suburb job explaining the different reasons for being baptized, and becoming a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She used some fantastic analogies to explain this important ordinance in children's terms, using everyday life situations.
The following questions are answered in this book. 
Why Do I Need To Be Baptized?
How does Baptism and the Holy Ghost work together?
How does Baptism wash away sin"
What promises are made at Baptism?

I loved Cory's illustrations. The book is colorful and engaging. The delightful artwork and story are perfect for explaining the importance of baptism in a child's life.

This book is a prequel to another book by Annalisa Hall entitled; "The Holy Ghost Is Like A Blanket". These books can assist you in teaching your children the importance and blessings that come from ordinances.
