    Favorite Features:

    As I have written in previous reviews of Thomas Kinkade books, these books and screen savers make superb gifts to show appreciation to volunteer teachers.  Each book is truly a delight to peruse through as are the screen savers as the combination of Thomas' paintings, Scripture, devotions, poems and exerpts of stories will bring pure enjoyment to any who receive one of these books or screen savers!  I cannot recommend highly enough these books and screen savers - they are ones to be truly enjoyed and treasured as they make excellent appreciation gifts for volunteers.  Consider asking parents to donate a dollar or two for each child's teacher and then purchase one of these as a Christmas gift for each volunteer.  Extremely well done Thomas, Harvest House, and Willow Road Software!
