Book of Mormon For Kids
Publisher : Gospel Tangents
Description
One day, I asked my children about a Book of Mormon story, and they had no idea what I was talking about. I have looked for a children’s version of the Book of Mormon, but they were all a bit too mature for my 7 and 5 year old to understand. I needed something that would teach to their level. So, I decided to write it myself, and have them illustrate it. My children loved the idea. Included are 25 "essential" stories from the Book of Mormon. My kids are the illustrators. They used a bit of artistic license: Samuel the Lamanite has a pirate hat, there are elephants on Nephi's ship, various Nephites do cart-wheels when they see Jesus, and the sun and trees frown when Nephi breaks his bow. Children ages 2-10 will enjoy this book.

Brandon was so excited about the prospect that he thought we could sell it! At first, I laughed at the idea. But with the Kindle, publishing is much easier so, I thought I would give it a shot! Our Bible was read so much, it’s practically destroyed now. I think it’s ok to read a Bible so much that it gets worn out. I hope to do the same with the Book of Mormon. (But make sure your kids don’t destroy your Kindle!)

Brandon suggested that we make a child’s version of the Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price too. Those are available as well! Keep informed of our progress at www.GospelTangents.com


The Story Behind This Book
A few years ago, I picked up a children’s Bible (made out of sturdy cardboard pages) and brought it home. My kids loved it, and became very familiar with the stories of the Bible. One day, I asked my children about a Book of Mormon story, and they had no idea what I was talking about. I have looked for a children’s version of the Book of Mormon, but they were all a bit too mature for my 7 and 5 year old to understand. I needed something that would teach to their level.
