    Melo’s Kingdom
    The inside pages of the book are printed in full-color. A presentation page in the front of the book allows you to address this book to your own princess. Each story is illustrated with delightful images of Melo and her animal friends, and each ending will surprise and delight the listeners. At the end of each story you will find a short prayer followed by two interactive activity pages that pose thought-provoking questions, fun activities, Bible verses, and interesting facts.

She has received numerous international awards for her work in social justice. Prof Thuli rose from humble beginnings, and she is passionate about social justice and storytelling. In Melo’s Kingdom, she intertwines pearls of wisdom with biblical principles to encourage children to embrace the idea of community – a word we call UBUNTU in South Africa. Other collaborators on this project include her daughter, Wenzile Msimanga, son-in-law, Khulekile Msimanga, and Khulekile’s father and language specialist Zedehiah Msimanga.

    Peek into the African continent’s stories and values when you read the adventures of Melo’s Kingdom to your children and cultivate an appreciation of world cultures.

  • Sammy Experiences God

    $14.99

    Sammy Experiences God is a classically illustrated children’s book inspired by the Experiencing God teachings of Henry Blackaby. It will help kids begin to understand that God is not far off or hiding from them, and that they can experience his love and involvement in their lives as they follow him.

    One evening when little Sammy announces after his bedtime prayers that he is going to look for God, his parents soon enough understand that the boy literally means what he said. When events like a night of camping under the stars and a hike up a small mountain don’t bring Sammy what he’s looking for, mom and dad try to explain that God is everywhere. But discouragement and a lack of understanding follow.

    One day Grandpa Henry figures out what everyone else is missing. Sammy wants to have an encounter with God like the ones he has read about in the Bible — like Abraham under the stars and Moses at the burning bush after climbing a mountain. Like Jacob, like Elijah, like the disciples.

    Grandpa tells Sammy of another Sammy from the Bible (Samuel at age 12), reaching the child with a simple explanation of how we can all experience God’s love, wisdom, and help right in the middle of everyday life.
