(Dallas, Texas – November 9, 2011) On one very special day each year, many people across the country close their eyes, make a wish and blow out candles as they enjoy a bite of cake in celebration of their birthday. In this heart-warming story, one precious 5-year-old boy named Jackson remembers another remarkable birthday—and decides that Jesus, too, should have his very own cake!
Carolyn Snelling, author of the Heart of the Cross series forays into the genre of children’s literature with her new story, Christ’s Cake. Written from the depths of her tender passion to celebrate a child’s pure and simple love of Jesus, Snelling invites readers along on an imaginative adventure that simply and unashamedly conveys Christ’s love for us. Illustrator Lon Eric Craven breathes life and whimsy into the story with his artistry as we follow Jackson’s adventure. Additionally, Snelling goes the extra mile in her work to include interactive projects certain to engage the entire family and facilitate conversation about the topic at hand.
Carolyn Snelling’s love and zeal for Jesus is the genesis for this interactive storybook. Recognizing that every child is created with a desire to know God, “Christ’s Cake” utilizes the parallel of a child’s anticipation of his birthday celebration to his understanding that Jesus had birthdays too. Carolyn brings the Christmas story to life with activities the entire family will enjoy together any day of the year.
