About the Book:
“I’ve lost my joy where could it be?”
Come with our little girl on a search to find her “Joy”. Is it under the apple tree, is it out to sea, or is it in something that we cannot see? A message for little ones and big ones – where do we go to find joy when we have lost it.
About the Author:
Kirrily Lowe is the author of The Invisible Tree series of children’s books – a delightful and fun series seeking to capture great and timeless values for little ones.
Kirrily began her career as a lawyer working with children in Sydney’s Western Suburbs.
She is now the pastor together with her husband Tim of C3 City Campus – a dynamic and creative congregation in Darlinghurst, Sydney.
Kirrily began writing in 2010 whilst at home with her young children.
Kirrily lives in the northern suburbs of Sydney with Tim and her 3 young and lively boys.
Narelle: Joy is the second book in the Invisible Tree series. BelBel has lost her joy and she is searching everywhere to find it again. The story has a lovely message that our joy comes from God’s love for us. I liked the ‘Invisible Tree’ analogy and thought it was an interesting way to explain to younger children how God’s spirit can live inside us.
The illustrations are eye catching and the text is presented as if the words and phrases were cut out of magazines or newspapers and pasted on the page. The result is colourful and could help children identify key words in the sentences. I recommend this book to parents and carers who are looking for a fun and educational book to read with their Preschoolers.
