Help your children learn the basic truths of a testimony!
Based on the true experience of Susan L. Warner, former counselor in the Primary general presidency, this children's picture book tells the story of a girl who learns from her father what a testimony is. To help her understand how to express her testimony, her father uses his hand to teach her the five parts of a testimony in a way she can remember.
Along with the story, the book invites young Latter-day Saints to practice sharing their testimonies using the enclosed glove with pictures that attach to the end of each finger. The glove represents the Holy Ghost. There are pictures representing Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon, the temple, and our current prophet, President Thomas S. Monson.
*Royalties from the sale of this book assist in providing testimony gloves to children in developing countries.
A glove is included with every book.

Pros: I purchased one of these for my lovely daughter who was having trouble saying what we know is true. She is still not sure what she believes, but at least she remembers what she is told to with this glove.
Cons: It's kind of hard to pick things up once all the pictures are attached to the fingers.

Purchased 2 books, one for my parents who are serving a mission and one for our personal library. Before sending in the mail, I did a test drive of the glove. The glue that attaches the velcro to the glove immediately came off each finger.
Ended up returning both books. A bit disappointed.

I looked forward to sharing this as a Family Home Evening, but ended up disappointed. The story was difficult for the younger children to follow and read more like a journal entry than a children's story. The quality of the glove was poor at best. The velcro on the glove detached from the glue before we could even use it. I attempted to hot glue the pieces back on, but it was a very temporary fix. Great idea but lacked quality execution.
