The Lord Builds the House



For Children's Book Monday, I want to tell you about a wonderful book we recently purchased called The Lord Builds the House by Johannah Bluedorn. Johannah is a homeschooled author and illustrator of children's books. Her illustrations remind me of the work of an all-time favorite author/illustrator, Tasha Tudor.

This particular book contains gorgeous, "I can look at over and over again" illustrations to the text of Psalm 127. Not only will you and your children love exploring the details of the pictures, you are teaching them to love the beauty and message of scripture--it really comes alive for them.

You can check out this book and others at triviumpursuit.com. Don't forget to check out other Children's Book Monday selections at A Path Made Straight.

A homeschooled author? I love it! I want to find more homeschool role models for my children. I'll try to find this one so that I can show them what homeschoolers can grow up to be :)

Oh, I love Johannah Bluedorn! I reviewed her "My Mommy, My Teacher" a while ago, and I have been keeping my eye on this one. After reading your review and seeing the cover (and falling in love with it all over again), it might be time to purchase! :)
