The Penny

The Penny was chosen for April's "book of the month" because we wanted to read something different. I think this book lived up to our expectations. It was a nice mixture of fiction/ self-help/ and inspirational. The message was simple but clear--God will always be there for you and he loves you unconditionally.
"God puts his love right in the middle of your path. He drops it right there to catch your eye, to show that he can change your life if you'll just let him."
I think this message would translate well into a children's book about kindness. I've been talking with my kindergartners over the past two weeks about small acts of kindness that make a big difference in the lives of others. The message in this book fits perfectly in with what we've been discussing--little decisions, little acts of kindness can add up to make a huge impact. An example was when Jenny gave all of those pennies to others throughout the summer and they later came spilling back onto her from the portable reminding her of God's presence and love.
