"Mom, What Should I Look For in a Spouse?" - A New TOS Review!!

The Product:
Our newest review is a wonderful book called The Person I Marry.  It is part of the "Bright Future Series" over at Bower Family Books.  The 32 page book is hardback with beautifully illustrated pictures on all the pages.  Below is a picture of the front cover which will give you a glimpse of just how beautiful the illustrations are.

The book is written with creatively crafted poetry by Garry Bower and illustrated by his wife Jan Bower, an award winning artist.  The story captures things that a child (and even a grown child) to think about both before and after they say those famous words "I Do."  I've included a video where Gary and Jan explain the thinking behind the book.

You can purchase this book for $11.99 regularly, but right now they are on sale for $11.49.  And when you order you can request to have it autographed by the author and add personalization too.

Our Experience:
We were given a downloadble version of the book (just for review purposes).  So one day I read the story to them. They LOVED it!!  Then on another occasion, I had Arianna read it aloud to Audrie but had them sit together in front of the computer while reading.  I stole a few pictures while they were reading.

As you can see they were quite engrossed by the book.  I am definitely planning on putting these books on the Christmas list for this year.  Bower Family Books has many great choices including a book on Adoption, and another series called the Little Lovable Board Books.  You can also order artwork.
My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this book and love the basis for the creation of the books.  I would love to have ALL of these books, but that will take some time.  Until then, we will be reading this wonderful story and making sure they really understand the topics covered in the story about integrity, love, patience, and many others.
Make sure you read up on what my other Crew members thought of the Bower Family Books.  You can also contact Bower Family Books on Facebook or you can email them if you have any additional questions.
