Meet My Best Friend by Sheila Walsh [Review & Giveaway]

Buy it at Family Christian
About the book: The Bible is not only a book, but it can also be a friend—the best friend we have. This engaging picture book is a must-have because it allows kids to see the Bible as a friend they can trust and rely on. It’s a fun read that entertains and also tells the story of how much God loves them. 

My thoughts: This is a really cute book as the twins in Scotland greet newcomer, Abby, to their neighborhood. The McDougal twins invite Abby into their home to play. While there, the twins want to introduce Abby to their best friend so they play a game of hot and cold to see if Abby can find their best friend.

The "friend" is finally located and it isn't an individual; it is a book. Not just any book, it is the Bible, God's Holy Word.

I like the story line and the game the three children play. The two dogs are adorable and in side remarks carry on their own story line.

I personally believe that our best friend is Jesus, the Christ of the Bible. Our Savior. Our Redeemer. One with the Father. So personally I think presenting God's Written Word as a best friend is presumptuous. It is very true that the Bible is sacred and is the Word of God; and the Bible comforts the hurting and lonely. But it is not a personage.

So the story is cute, the illustrations quirky-cute and fun. It will provide a good read.

  1. I would like to get the Nursery Rhymes & Poetry and some of the Board Books.

  2. I think the board books would be my favorite thing!

  3. It is interesting that they made the Bible the best friend rather than Jesus. I'll have to think about how I feel about that, but my initial reaction is the same as yours. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful review at Booknificent Thursday this week!
