I think it's so great that the publisher created another version of this book! The original featured a girl in the illustrations, with her father, mother, and baby brother. In this new "boy version", the young boy is now the featured character, with his father, mother and older sister. The text is the same and pictures are subtly changed- the older sister is posed where the baby used to be, and the mother's hair is softer with more of a wave. It was fun to compare the two books and look for the differences!
The content is wonderful, I loved the examples used to describe the Holy Ghost and the way we feel the Spirit. There are references at the end for each example with a small image from the book, 1-2 scripture verses from the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants and Pearl of Great Price, and a song from The Children's Songbook. I can see this being used for a Family Home Evening lesson and creative activity using the examples in the book! The Holy Ghost is Like a Blanket is perfect for children of all ages, and would make a lovely gift for a child preparing for baptism.

I read this book to my grandchildren and they LOVED it. They even asked for it a week later when I saw them again. The analogies are absolutely beautiful and it led to us having a great conversation. It really helped explain a sometime abstract concept. Writing was terrific -- illustrations adorable. A MUST BUY!!
