    Highly Reccommended This is a wonderful book. It teaches children and adults alike about obedience, that there are consequences when we are not obedient. It also teaches us that we are given choices or paths to take. The decision is yours. It also teaches us that the decisions we make in life will definitely have an affect on others. A great book for adults and children.

    Perfect Gift for Kids This is by far, the best children’s book ever!!! All parents should share this book with their children. It is a perfect demonstration of the consequences we face for disobedience to God and the purpose of God’s love for each of us. It’s a great gift for any child or adult 🙂

    5 Excellent! The book started a whole new conversation in our house. Our adopted children ages 6 7 (girls) and a 5 year old boy. They ask to listen and read the book over and over and over again. Cant wait to get the next book. Thank you!

    Great pictures! I have the non illustrated book, and the audio book of The Hedge of Thorns. This beautiful illustration sums up the story nicely. I bought it to read to my grand children. Now they don’t have to wait to learn about God’s boundaries….They are learning as toddlers.

    Highly Recommended! I am often a restless man myself particularly when my prospects are compromised in some way. So it need not be merely a matter of rebellion, sometimes it is frustration over the Lord’s perceived will, regarding my own plans to improve our family’s situation. This process shows my selfish will and is drawn out in my circumstances. As I was feeling downcast over such an ordeal a few nights ago my 3 year old asked specifically for this book. I read it to Him, and I felt chastened lovingly by the Lord and reminded that He is in control. God is good, my 8 year old son said that night, “no daddy, He is PERFECTLY GOOD!”

    Wonderful! This story is so beautifully illustrated and so movingly told. The moral is one any parent will want their child to learn. I plan to read it over and over to my children. And, I plan to buy it to give as a birthday gift to children.

    Lovely Story and Pictures This is a beautiful story about staying safe within the Lord’s boundaries. This entire story is symbolic – the actual hedges represent the limitations God puts in our lives. That being the case, my four year old obviously didn’t understand the deeper level. But he did understand that the boy’s father told him not to cross the hedge and he disobeys and reaps the consequences. And he did ask for this book every night for two weeks and mention hedges of thorns in daily conversation. It’s a great disobedience/forgiveness story so you can’t go wrong reading this to preschool age children (my son obviously loves it) but it may be a little wordy for some.

    Highly Recommended I love this book! I like to have extras on hand to give to children for Birthday gifts! God’s principles are so true! Good story to encourage obedience in children!

    Highly Recommended I’m very excited to read this to my grandchildren. I know there is nothing that teaches important morals and truth like a story can, and this book is powerful!

    Excellent My grandkids were on the edge of their seats during this story. My four-year old granddaughter brought it to me the following day & wanted to hear it again. It’s well-written, beautifully illustrated, and has a powerful message.

    Illustrated Hedge of Thorns I wanted a book on why disobedience has consequences and how selfishness is rooted in evil and hurts those around us. Beautifully illustrated. I read it and re read it and talked more about the biblical principals and parallels it draws almost like a devotion. Please if you buy this book don’t just read it, explain in depth what it means to your children. I love the scripture in the back of the book too. I hope these stories are brought to mind when they are older and lay a foundation that repels rebellion. I love the stories that teach life lessons through biblical truth.

    The Illustrated Hedge of Thorns We love the illustrations and opportunity to introduce our daughter to the rich messages of the stories. Look forward to when she is older and we are able to read and discuss the full version.

    Life Changing Priceless truths! My 8 and 4 yr old we’re spellbound as well as captivated. This book depicts a timeless secret to a successful Christian walk.
