  • Sandy’s Most Embarrassing Moment? When in the third grade, the bottom of her skirt caught on the top of the slide. As she descended the slide, her skirt ripped all the way down and left her with a waistband and only three inches of skirt. The boys came like magnets. She wore her friend’s long coat the rest of the day.

My Thoughts:

The birth of Little Kicker was a very special day for his parents.  They wanted to invite all their friends to come and say a prayer for Little Kicker to celebrate this special occasion.

All of their friends on the farm came to offer a prayer for Little Kicker to keep him safe and for him to know God and serve God in an assume way.

The author has not only written a precious rhyming story, she has added special facts and activities pertaining to the farm and many of God's creatures. It's colorfully written and illustrated in a way that will pull the child's imagination into this darling story about Little Kicker and of him being lifted up to God in prayer by family and friends.

I highly recommend this book.

I rate this book a 5 out of 5.
