Based on Galatians 5:22-23 on the fruit of the Spirit. Friendly characters and fun rhyme in this brightly illustrated children's book help Christian families learn about living fruitful lives. When Jesus is the vine and we are the branches, we are filled with his Spirit and produce good fruit such as charity, joy, patience, kindness, self-control, peace, gentleness, goodness, and faithfulness. The terminology may seem somewhat abstract, but the illustrations show concrete examples and facilitate great discussion during story time. If used consistently, children begin to understand and use the terminology themselves. Every Christian family needs this book, either for its own household, or to be ready to be shared with someone else. Great gift for expectant parents, Baptisms, Easter, Christmas, or god-child's birthday. Think how wonderful the world would be if we were all taught to be Fruitful Friends!
