I received this book from a Goodreads giveaway, and I loved it! My 8-year-old daughter actually grabbed it first and began looking at it right away. She pointed out the two main characters in the pre-mortal life FHE group and said, "Look, mom, it's you and dad!" The illustrations are wonderful and very detailed. My favorites are the picture of the boy with the CTR shirt, the baptism "sploosh" and the couple's dating and growing old pages. (My 6-year-old loved all the babies!)

I think the message

We received this book as a gift. I generally do not care for books that turn the scriptues, etc. into cartoons (tasteful drawings, pictures, etc., I'm fine with), hence the low rating. I find this style, so common in LDS children's literature today, irreverent and I think there are more appropriate ways to engage children's interests while teaching gospel principles.

To the author's credit, however, it was very well written. It explained the Plan of Salvation respectfully and clearly in a way tha

I love this book. My children immediately identified with the level of the book. It better explained complex religious concepts that I had problems simplifying for my children. It also came with a fold out wall poster that has the whole Great Plan of Happiness on the wall. Great for Family Home Evening. I shared this with a co-worker. I still have yet to find his opinion.

My 8 year old son LOVES all of the Who's Your Hero books by this author and I just saw this (I'm assumming new) one. They aren't cheap paperback books, but they are well worth the money for the lessons they teach. This is actually a hardback book and it is beautifully written. My kids love the illustrations in these books too!

This is an excellent book for kids. Great pictures and simple but indepth details of where we came from, why we're here, and what happens after we die. Love it! And my little Scooter loves it too!

It taught me and my little brother a lot. We learned about the great plan of happiness and how we can return to Heavenly Father. We did have spirits and then we went into a tiny baby body.
