REVIEW By LAWonder10:
For over almost two decades we have read a wonderful children's book 'I Wonder When He Comes Again' as part of our Christmas celebration before opening presents. Although it holds a very special place in our hearts, it is being retired to the next Easter celebration and 'A Piece of Silver' is or new family Christmas story book along with a nativity scripture.
'A Piece of Silver ' is a wonderful story which ties the birth of the Savior with His crucifixion. It is short, yet profound. It begins with a precious "piece of silver".
This well-written story will surely become a favorite family story in each "home" wwho invites it in!
This is a tenderly touching story.
The illustrations created by Annie Henrie are a combination of sketch and painted illustrations reflecting the time period with the antique looking faded images and backgrounds. She did an excellent job in not only the artwork but in the cognancy of the time period. It was inspirational insight.
I offer a Five Stars rating.
*This book was gifted me with no pressure whatsoever to post a positive review. This I do freely. This is my honest review.
