The first story my husband read as a little boy was Stuart Little by E. B. White. Stuart Little is a small, white, talking mouse that lives in New York and has human parents. He sleeps in a cigarette box, drives a toy model car and goes on wild adventures. Some of his adventures are exciting while others are scary and even sad. My husband was frightened of mice, but he imagined owning a mouse like Stuart Little and dreamed of the adventures they would have together. At age 58 he still recalls this 131-page book because it left such an impression on his young mind.
Books have the ability to take us places and impact our lives. Some books, like Stuart Little, make such an impression they stay with us forever.

Jesus laid down his life for his friends, for all mankind.
Many years ago my husband introduced me to the story of Stuart Little. Like my husband, I loved all of the adventures Stuart encountered. It’s a fun story! A make believe story.
The greatest story of all time is the story of Jesus, it’s a true story. This story will leave an impression that is eternal.
