Tamasin is a 10 year old girl who enjoys running, fishing, and snuggles with her cat, Mr. Tibbles.
Her favorite books at the Westminster Kids Bookstore are:
1 . Sophie and the Heidelberg Cat
Sophie, a little girl upset after disobeying her parents, learns the basics of the gospel of grace from a neighborhood cat. Weaving accessible truths with whimsical illustrations and engaging rhymes, this book will help readers understand grace in a fresh way.
Tamasin says: "I liked how it was easy to understand but I also learned a lot. I liked how the story takes place on a roof with a cat. That was more fun and different. It makes you feel what Sophie feels and she does things like most kids do." (Click to View Product)

3. Henry Says Goodbye: When You Are Sad
Henry has to say good-bye to his ladybug. Henry and his whole family are sad, but they learn to go to Jesus with their sadness and ask him to comfort them. The last page contains information for parents on how God, in his Word, helps us turn to Jesus when we are sad.
