Amazon Reviewer:  "This book deserves every last five-star review it has on here. This has got to be one of the sweetest books about the Savior I have ever read, for children or adults—sure to touch the heart of anyone fortunate enough to read it. The emotion conveyed on each page through the simple arrangement of rocks is astounding. And if the pictures and accompanying messages and scripture are not enough to bring you to tears, the note from the author at the end of the book certainly will. Heartfelt, simple, and poignant. A homerun!"

This book is simple and beautiful! My children went straight to the backyard to collect rocks so that they could retell the story! This book will be a family tradition to kickoff the Christmas season!

JaLaine, Mother

Something about these pages and the fact that the story is told with ordinary rocks is so powerful. My kids keep asking questions about the story and now have a new way to play with rocks! 

Bree, Mother & Professor

This book has captured my heart! ❤️ It is creative and expresses the simplicity and grandeur of nature.
Rocks really can tell a story in a beautiful way!

Publishers Weekly Review

Following A Savior Is Born: Rocks Tell the Story of Christmas, Rokus offers a visual narrative of Jesus’s crucifixion and resurrection through artful arrangements of stones, with scripture verses appearing throughout. The figure of Jesus is crafted with a round, stone head, and shapely rocks form his sweeping robe: “Jesus came to earth to bring healing and joy to all who follow Him, and to lead us home to God.” Rokus represents “people who wanted to kill Him” as sinister stone faces with angry, slanted eyebrows and open mouths. Other scenes depict Jesus riding a stone donkey, washing the disciples’ feet, on the cross, and his resurrection: “After three days, Jesus came back to life! We will all live again because He conquered death.” An inventive and moving telling of the Easter story. (February 5, 2019)
