Deseret Book sent me some of these books to check out and I want to share our experience with them, with you!
So, the first book is called Baptized and Confirmed: Your Lifeline to Heaven by Elaine Cannon.
The next book is called My Baptism Keepsake by Sara Staker.
The next book is My Baptism Memories by Val Chadwick Bagley
The next book is called What Are the Promises I Make at Baptism?
by Michele Leigh Carnesecca and Carol Shelley Xanthos.
The last book is called White Dresses by Deborah Pace Rowley.
This is another storybook, it's written to the little girl being baptised, from her father. He talks about his experience baptising her and reflects on her baby blessing day when she wore her first white dress. He talks about the things she teaches him and the ways she blesses his life. The book teaches (through the father's words) about the Holy Ghost and things like the scriptures, family prayer, family home evening, and the Word of Wisdom. The father talks about the future when the girl will be able to enter the temple, how she'll grow up and eventually get engaged and wear her third white dress in the temple on her wedding day. As if the book weren't enough of a tear-jerker with just these things, it ends with imagining the day that they will meet again in heaven, dressed in white. Seriously, this book makes me cry just as I describe it to you! :)
All of these books are such excellent tools for helping your child to prepare for baptism and for recording the special details and memories from that special event in your child's life. I hope I've been able to give you some more details about the books than you would find online elsewhere, to help you if you're shopping for something like this!
