Goodreads description:

Who stole the flowers in God's Secret Garden? Find out in this delightful tale, which uses animals, nature, and a visit from an angel to teach the importance of prayer and the value of trusting God.

My Take: 

What a lovely little book with a wonderful message on not letting others steal your joy.  This book is written especially for younger children and offers a message of love and hope in a way that is simple for them to understand.  With lovely illustrations and characters,

children will see the value of prayer in action. 

Short and sweet, it's just long enough to hold young children's attention without giving them time to get restless.

My grandbebes loved it at Gigi Storytime, and I think your children and grandchildren will, too.  It would make a lovely and meaningful addition to the Christmas gift list!

BOOK RATING:   4 out of 5 stars

Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
