About the Books
WhiteSpark Publishing is thrilled to bring readers young and old two delightful stories all about color!
Isaac’s Ice Cream Tree
Isaac loves the sugar maple in his yard, and he can’t help but feel bad for it when its branches are winter-bare. He decides to give it a gift…and is surprised when the tree returns the favor in the new morning snow, presenting him with balls of…ice cream!
But how long can this magic last with spring on the horizon? A magical exploration through the colors of the rainbow, the days of the week, and some of our favorite fruits that is sure to delight.
When God Made Color
The wonders of creation spread out before us in all the glories of the rainbow…the deep purples and blues of night, the bright yellows of day, the pinks and oranges of flowers. And of course, the colors of all the creatures…including us! These sumptuous fine art illustrations will thrill parent and child alike!

I have to tell you my little girl, 2 almost 3, loves Isaac's Ice Cream Tree! Partly because it was about one of her favorite treats, but also because of the fun, magic, and imagination of the story. Although the reading was a little above her, she understood the story, and loved all the colors. I loved the message of the story, and I just thought it inspires kids' imaginations, hopes and dreams to do the impossible and never give up. It was so fun and the illustrations really brought the story to life.
My little girl LOVED all the colors in When God Made Color. While again, the writing itself was above her level, she loved the beautiful artistry and learned about the days of creation in such a fun and beautiful way. As a parent, I loved how the truth of creation came through in a way that totally related to kids and promoted diversity and how we should love one another because we are all beautiful and all created to be unique!
I would recommend both of these books for your toddler all the way up to middle-grade school like 3rd grade though the reading level is more lower grade school.
I received a complimentary copy of both of these books, and all opinions given are entirely my own.

More from AngelaWhy children’s books? After all, I teach young teens. Well, my reasons:
- I love art, and reading children’s books is like looking at an artist’s showcase of creativity! * Shout out to my amazing illustrator, Rachael Koppendrayer!
- I love to dream up the impossible, and you can make anything happen in a children’s book!
- I love togetherness and nothing brings a family together like a good book.

More from SheriA child asks, “Who am I?” Creation Vs. Evolution – The big battle. Many public schools are presenting Evolution as fact and not theory. They leave no room for the concept of Creation. Our little ones are not creatures descended from animals, they are Children of God, created in His image. This is our identity and our children’s Identity and it makes all the difference in how we see ourselves, how we see others and how we engage in the world. Our identity is made clear in Genesis, the first book of the Bible. Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground. So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:26-27 NIV. As Christian parents and grandparents, we are charged with teaching, encouraging and bringing forth our family line for the LORD. The new picture book When God Made Color, with its awe inspiring illustrations, is about our true identity and about the joyful, loving God who created us and the whole universe – a universe that is still expanding – Isn’t He just amazing?
