It is definitely one of my life goals to write a children’s book and eventually my own series.
Therefore, I am happy to see my friend of a decade, Ben Wilder, have his first book published. It is called, Big and Small, God Made Them All.
A couple of weeks ago, Ben visited my house and we made this video together to promote it:
Before the book was published, Ben asked me to write a quick synopsis for the back cover. I feel honored.
Here’s what I said:
“How do you begin to legitimately introduce the gospel to a young child? You present them with God’s creation of the universe. Then you explain that this same God loves them too. That is exactly what Ben Wilder has done here.”
In addition to being able to write an inviting children’s story through poetry, something else Ben did a great job of was finding the right illustrator; who happens to be Laura Watson. The pictures are very well matched for the story.
I am so proud of Ben’s new book. And… one lucky reader won their very own copy just from reading this blog post.
Congrats to Heather Tucker, who was the first to go on the Facebook page for Family Friendly Daddy Blog, where I advertised this blog post about Ben’s book, and leave this comment:
“Did I just win a copy of Ben Wilder’s children’s book, Big and Small, God Made Them All”?
(When this blog post was live for the first 24 hours, Heather was the first to respond to the then open giveaway. This giveaway offer is now closed.)
I believe Ben Wilder has a bright future in writing children’s books. The main thing is, the word just needs to get out about his first book.
If you’re possibly interesting in purchasing the book, go here to Ben’s website.
And thanks for visiting Family Friendly Daddy Blog today.
