Book Review/Giveaway: Silent Sally: A Story About Being a DOER. Ends March 17th

Silent Sally

Silent Sally by Eric Walls

About the Book: “Silent Sally” is the delightful story of a quite little girl who is always helping others not with words but with deeds. Her classmates think she’s odd. But slowly through her quiet, constant giving, the whole school recognizes her real worth and what it means to be a silent doer. “Silent Sally” will help your kids learn an important lesson: God wants us to not just HEAR, but practice DOING what His word says by following Christ’s example of sacrifice and compassion in serving and giving to others.

My Review: What an interesting story to learn that one silent girl name Sally could make a big difference by being a doer. Sally was never a talkative girl like her classmates. For Sally, to talk is fine, but being a doer for her was a good example to others.

Sally will water the plants, feed the school pet, and when the recess bell chimed, the kids will ran outside while leaving their toys scattered all over the floor. She will make sure she picks them all up before stepping outside. Sally will go out of her way to help her school mates. One day John notice when she pick up his books and watch her as she went out of her way to help others. Then her classmates started to notice and wonder why she does what she do without asking for help. They soon where encouraged to think abou the needs of others, to be a doer.

The author has a note to parents at the end of the story about James 1:22 which will encourage them to teach their children how to become a doer.

The illustrations are very positive and help tells the story. I recommend this book for every house hold with children and for classroom teaching.

  5. I think we can all learn from this book about being a doer. The whole saying walk the walk…not just talk the talk. My nephew just got baptized and this book sounds like it would coincide with things he was told at his baptism, especially about doing for others.

  9. I love the lesson that this book teaches. I have been teaching my kids what it means to have a servants heart. My 7 year old daughter is very caring and compassionate and I pray that when she is older she will joyfully serve the Lord and our community.

  11. Sally sounds like a great role model. We should aspire to be more like her and let our actions display our character more than our words.
