About "New Girl & the Picnic (Precious Princess Series)"
Daisy's adventures start when her Grandad, who always called her his pretty, precious princess, gives her a book full of precious secrets. But it is not just any book - it is a portal to Bible times. In New Girl, Daisy is asked to look after Julia, a new girl in her class. At first she is pleased to have been asked, but when Julia proves to be withdrawn and tearful, Daisy chooses to play with her friends instead. It's only after her special book whisks her off to Bible times that she sees the difference Jesus makes when he befriends the Samaritan woman at the well. In The Picnic, Daisy feels sad and lonely when, after three days away from school unwell, she thinks that her friends have forgotten her. Her special book takes her to Bible times, to see how a group of friends, determined to get to Jesus, lower one of their sick friends down through the roof to avoid the crowds around Him.

I have brought these books for two years now to present to our Year One Sunday School students at the end of the year. They are hardback (durable) and have one page of written words and the corresponding page has a coloured picture. I think they are appealing to look at and the stories are great. My only wish is the font was bigger for younger readers. But still fantastic for children who may like a more "grown up" looking book.
