Pups of the Spirit is a children's picture book by Zonderkidz that demonstrates the fruits of the Spirit through nine puppies. The book is written in rhyme. On each spread you meet a new pup and see how they demonstrate a fruit of the Spirit.
If you have seen the trailer for this book, you may be wondering if this is an illustrated book or a book with photographs of puppies - so I will just clear that up right is illustrations only. (No photographs.) Deborah Melmon has done a beautiful job illustrating this book. (Honestly, I don't think the cover does justice to the quality of illustrations inside the book.)

If you get this book in hardcover and it has a dust jacket - you get a cute bonus. The back side of the dust jacket is actually a poster. (The front of the dust jacket will say "Poster Inside" - it is not a poster inside the book, but inside the dust jacket.) The poster has pictures of each of the pups with a verse for each.

My son (who is 5) particularly enjoys this book - I think the puppies will automatically draw most kids in. I think this is a great book to read with little ones.
FTC Declaration: The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy. This does not change the fact that I will give my honest opinion in my reviews.
