ONE LITTLE MATCH by Thomas S Monson--Book Review

ONE LITTLE MATCH by Thomas S Monson. This delightful picture book illustrates a beautiful life lesson that President Monson talked about in one of his conference talks about following directions and feelings. My three-year-old was captivated by the pictures which lead to him listening to the message. It is a book we will read over and over together. I would highly recommend this book for anyone, especially those with young children. It is a wonderful book.

Thomas S. Monson loved spending summers at his family's cabin in Utah's Vivian Park. One summer day, he and his best friend, Danny, decided to clear a field so they could gather with their friends and have a campfire that night. The tall, stubborn weeds would not pull out easily. So Tommy had the idea to burn them up instead.
He knew he shouldn't use matches without permission from his parents. But he ignored the feeling that warned him of the danger and raided the matchbox in the cabin. Back in the field, he lit one little match and prepared to set the parched June grass abaze...
Readers of all ages will resonate with this wonderful true story that demonstrates the blessings of obedience and "the dangers that can come from something as small as one little match."
