Chrissie's Shell - Brooke Keith (Picture Book)

Released September 2010

Reviewed by Tracy Farnsworth

Chrissie's sad; she wishes she was more like other creatures in the forest. She's not quick like the field mouse who races through the forest at top speed. She's not nimble like the squirrel who races up the side of a tree carrying acorns. She's definitely not spikey like the hedgehog who keeps predators away simply by having spikes.

Miserable that her shell doesn't contain any special power, Chrissie turns to God. Her wish is simple, she wants God to make her like the others. Instead, God shares a secret about Chrissie that she never realized.

Chrissie's Shell is a Christian child's novel filled with colorful illustrations and a powerful message. Children will relate with Chrissie's insecurities and delight in what she learns.

This is a perfect book for young Christian readers. The text isn't too challenging, but still poses a solid mix of words for the advancing reader.
