In this modern translation of a vintage favorite, be transported to a time past and into the life of Little Lou. Growing up in 1840’s New England, Little Lou is the son of a college professor and a wise, loving mom who stays home to raise him. What will this precocious little boy do or say next? You’ll laugh and maybe even cry as you get to know Lou and his family through stories and original poems. With her characteristic warmth and humor, and her evident love for children, Elizabeth Prentiss makes us fall in love with Little Lou! There are many teachable moments and it’s a delight to see Lou grow to love God with his mother’s gentle instruction. The pages are sprinkled with helpful parenting tips and ideas for play. Parents will enjoy this book as much as their children. The endearing and realistic characters make this a book that is sure to be read to your children again and again.
Elizabeth Prentiss wrote over two dozen books including fiction, poetry, and hymns. Her husband, Reverend George Prentiss, wrote: Her pen moved always and only under a sense of duty. She held her talent as a gift from God, and consecrated it sacredly to the enforcement and diffusion of His truth.
