Florentine and the Treasures of the Snow

Carrie S book coverFlorentine and the Treasures of the Snow is a newly published children’s book by Herb and Carrie Stine

What’s a girl mouse to do when she discovers snow for the first time in her life? Join Florentine and her friends on the adventure of a lifetime from snowball fights to high speed sledding on a kitchen spoon to dealing with the local bullies. Florentine and the Treasures of the Snow is the first of a series of stories designed to teach children about God’s Word through Florentine’s adventures. In this first book, Florentine and her brother, Baxter, learn about God’s creation through a winter snowstorm. This would be a great book for parents and grandparents to read to their children. Children ages nine through twelve would enjoy reading this book.
This book is available in Amazon as a paperback book and Kindle reader or contact Carrie Stine (drcarriestine@gmail.com) for a signed copy.
