For Little Friends

By Sandra Liatsos

My Valentine for You

My snowman holds
my valentine
especially for you.
It says,
“I’d like you
for a friend.”
And what it says
is true.

When I Lived with My Heavenly Father

Draw the other side of each picture, then color all the pictures and retell this true story.

We lived with Heavenly Father before we were born.

He had Jesus Christ create the world for us.

Jesus made it beautiful with trees and flowers.

He made the sun and the moon and the stars to give it light.

He made the fish and the birds and all the animals and put them on it.

Then He placed Adam and Eve, our first ancestors, on it.
