Review Childrens Book:The Merchant and the Thief: A Folktale from India by Ravi Zacharias, Laure Fournier

When Raj left the room, Mohan tiptoed over to his belongings and searched hurriedly under Raj’s pillow. Again he found nothing. Mohan longs for Raj’s treasure. He plots and he schemes and his plan seems perfect! But along the way, he discovers an important lesson about wanting what someone else has … and about the most important treasure of all. From bestselling author Ravi Zacharias comes a retelling of a classic Indian folktale that teaches powerful truths about faith.

This book is a cute book. My 5 year old really enjoyed seeing culture of India along with colors not found in typical story books. The story is a simple story that is easy to understand and easy to follow. The colors are vivid and very beautiful illustrations. It is truly a message of forgiveness that is sure to become a timeless treasure!
