Book Review: First Book about Marriage


This morning, Judi, our church librarian (and friend who named the blog) handed me a book. “Here’s a good one for you to review, Linda.”

And it is.

A Child’s First Book about Marriage is written by Jani Ortland and explains marriage to very young children. Think preschool to second grade. Jani explains marriage vows and why vows are important to keep. She also describes the joys of marriage and touches on the sadness when marriages break up.

She discusses people who want to do things their own way instead of God’s way and emphasizes the importance of kindness and at the same time, reminds children that God’s way is always best.

I like the end of the book where she suggests different ways to use the book.

If you have young children, here’s a good way to get the marriage discussion started.
