After reading Bank's first book "Jacob's Promise" formerly known as "I Got It" Hickey said, "As a grandmother and teacher of the Word, this book delights me! Celia Banks has created a beautiful storybook that blends key Bible truths with adorable animals in a captivating way. Children will love it…and learn important spiritual truths while they read. Every person with children in their life should consider this a must-have for their little ones."
Organizations hosting the free tour will receive:
One set of books donated to the library of your choice.
Books made available for purchase during the day of the Bible Story Time event.
Each child will also receive a Celia Banks character bookmark.
In the God's Word is Just for Me series Banks has combined her extensive corporate experience with her love of children and literature to create a series of interactive, illustrated, children's books. Her method of using photographic textures provides a truly hands-on interactive learning tool for young children. The children will use the interactive activities in the God's Word Is Just For Me Series to improve reading skills, learn textures, and engage their environment and surroundings.
"Through this series, your children will learn to trust in the promises of God and develop a love for Bible stories through this unique and innovative story-telling art form," Banks said.
