Leia and her father enjoy spending time with one another more than anything. They love taking long afternoon walks together. On these walks Leia enjoys many fun filled activities—treasure hunting being one of her favorites. Leia’s favorite time of all, however, is at the end of the day when her father treats her to storytime. Then one night, Leia’s father tells her the story of a wonderful and mysterious golden treasure. Will Leia solve the mystery and unlock the riches of this incredible treasure? Come along as a father and daughter spend a lifetime investing in one of the most beloved pastimes of childhood––storytime, and along the way, they both discover the awesome wonder of the greatest treasure of all.
What a beautiful story of a father’s love for his daughter. I love the eternal message in this story. As a parent one of the most important things I can give my child is the knowledge of the Savior and having a relationship with the Savior.
Throughout the story the father is passionate about impressing God’s word into his daughter’s life. His nightly routine is reading the Bible to her. As the daughter grows into her teenager years and later she goes off to college she discovers the secret of the, “Seven Golden Keys” and “The Great Treasure of Golden Destiny”. Leia shares the Treasure with her children.
As a Messianic Believer in Yeshua (Jesus) I was delighted to see a Tallit on Yeshua in the book. My kids also noticed it quickly. The illustrations are made to look like an oil painting on a canvas and are absolutely stunning.
My 10 yr. old daughter loved the story. I had to read it in several sittings as it is lengthy for my daughter who has some special needs. My son was disappointed that it was just about a girl and not a boy. He thought the story would have been better with having both a girl and boy.:0) He thought the story was to long but he enjoyed it. Overall this was a wonderful story.
