About the Book
While PuppyGirl and BigBestFriend are in California, PuppyGirl gets to learn about the ocean, especially how waves can make you fall down. But, if you bark at them… they just go back into the ocean!
It is here PuppyGirl meets several new creatures but one in particular she names Nobby Star. JesusSaviorFriend uses Nobby to illustrate an important lesson.
They learn that special gifts are given to everyone by God’s Spirit and they find ways to recognize them and to use them to make others smile, spreading the love of JesusSaviorFriend. Children should never be afraid to recognize their gifts and use them, especially the most valuable gift of all, love. This is the best gift we can give back to God.
