More Than Just a Book That Talks About God on a Child's Level

Teaching Our Children Important Life Lessons and Values


Philadelphia, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/24/2015 --The author of Beautiful is Black and a children's literature writer, Serenity Anderson, has just released her second book, Pleasing the Lord. The purpose of this book is to serve as a moral compass by which children can direct their lives through the study of God's Word.

Childhood can be an extremely confusing time, especially for children in public school or active in social groups today. Whether they meet new people who are from a different culture, religion, ethnicity, or have a physical or mental impairment, they must learn how to cope with uniqueness.

"Pleasing the Lord is more than just a storybook that talks about God on a child's level. It is also a great opportunity for teaching life lessons that any child can understand, regardless of religion, ethnicity, disability, or any other factor," explained the author. She also believes that teaching kindness, love and prayer to children allows them to seek God in all circumstances and follow His word in every situation.

Pleasing the Lord can be of assistance to parents, teachers, guardians, babysitters, grandparents, or pastors in introducing Biblical concepts to children aged seven to fourteen. Through colorfully illustrated pages, subsequent descriptions and verses, the book explains important life lessons such as forgiveness, fairness, justice, honesty, respect, love and compassion, in a way that any child can understand. Comparing the descriptions to the pictures allows children to visualize the necessities of a faithful life.
