Eat Your Peas--the Book
This book starts out with an introductory page that can be personalized. The other pages are set up in pairs. One page has a very short inspirational message and simple illustrations that help highlight the message. The opposite page has a little instructional life lesson—to go along with the message. (A road map of words for your journey through life.) Some pages also have a short bible quote on the bottom of the page that goes along with the explanation.
The design of the book is in keeping with the “Eat Your Peas” little packets of inspirational messages by the same author. The cover has the same format and artwork. The print is on textured paper which just adds to the specialness of the message.
I would recommend this book as a great gift for anyone who needs a little uplifting. It is well-written and a very quick read. (The cover says 3 minutes.) Personally, it took me longer because I wanted to reflect on each message before I went on to the next one. I knew right who I wanted to give it to and that I wanted a copy for myself!
Please note that Thomas Nelson Publishing has provided me a complimentary copy of this book for my review; however, the opinions are my own. I have not been required to publish a positive review.
