A book I'm going to read to my daughter because a kiss is more than just a kiss.

having a surprise answer that will touch the heart of parent and a child.

Personal Reaction:
I learned an important message that "Love, comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith" (1 Timothy 1:5). There is someone special that God has chosen for you. You need to be patient and never give up on God. It is a life lesson on purity and saving yourself for marriage.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. In the classroom, I would share this book with girls ages 4-8. It would be a great book for teaching responsibility to help our children learn who they are, where they came from, why they are on this earth, and where they are going when they leave. This outstanding story helps them understand WHO they are, that they are precious to their parents, and that they can understand and live by principles that will preserve their lives.
2. In addition, young children need to know God wants us to "wait" for the person He has for us...not to "be with" just anyone! I would certainly show sex is being taught everywhere unfortunately and investigate the wrong reasons of having sex before marriage.
