The BOOK REPORT: The Little Pot by Dawn Stephens

   The Little Pot

Written and illustrated
by Dawn Stephens

Most humans wonder what their purpose in life is. Many do not look to God for their answer and might never find an answer on their own.

In Dawn Stephen’s, The Little Pot,’ Little Pot waits patiently for its creator to let it know its purpose. This enthralling children’s story shows its young readers that their purpose is in the loving and caring hands of God and they need not fear what lay ahead for God’s plan holds the best outcome. This is a story for all ages.
My four year old grandson, Luke eagerly listened to the whole story. He loved that with each job Little Pot got made Little Pot more and more important. Luke said, “It was good that the Little Pot waited.”
