I was sent this special book to review and it didn't disappoint. Jenny Phillips has a way with words and music to tell a simple but most powerful parable for our time.

The story starts off by telling us about the journeys of three siblings: Sarah, Ori, and Tabitha. They are on their way to the Kingdom of the Light Maker. In order to reach the Kingdom of the Light Maker, they need to stay on the Golden Pathway. They are told to always keep their shields out to ward off danger and pitfalls. Along t

Good book with beautiful illustrations. There were only two things that I had issues with. First, that it was a little choppy in the writing. I wish it would have flowed a little better. Second, I wish it was made into a novel instead of a small parable. It could have still had meaning being written into a novel. Look at Narnia by C.S. Lewis. I think over all the author did a great job.

Beautiful illustrations and wonderful parable about staying on the straight and narrow...or in this case the "golden pathway" and trusting our Father in Heaven to help us and bring us safely home. It didn't touch me quite as deeply as "Beautiful" but still well written and worth reading/listening to.

This book has great illustrations and it is a wonderful parable about taking the right path to reach the ultimate goal of returning to live with Heavenly Father. I loved the symbolism and it's a good story for adults and children alike.

This book has a very important message and just like Jesus taught with parables so that those ready to learn would understand the underlying message, Jenny teaches this message so that it is a simple tale to the very young, and strong warning to those of us who are older.

Kilee and I both read this one and loved it! Jenny makes a great story of staying on the golden pathway, and the consequences of stepping off of it! Great story for youth, and pre-teens!

Jenny Phillips created another fabulous CD. This time it's a book and CD with music that includes a narration of the book. It's inspiring.

We read this for family home evening. It was fun for the kids to relate elements of the story to the iron rod. My husband had to listen to "Good bye Yellow Brick Road" after we finished.

My daughter got this as a baptism gift. My kids love it, it came with an audio CD and my son keeps asking to listen to it again and again. It prompted a gospel discussion over dinner.
