Pann Baltz (Disney Teacher of the Year)"With the wisdom, humor, and loving experience acquired from raising seven children, David and Ruth Elliott have written and beautifully illustrated a heartwarming story about a young boy that will engage readers of all ages. Combining familiar themes of a lost pet, the 'Why can't I do what others do?' and the wonder of a father's sacrificial love, THE RICHEST KID IN THE POORHOUSE reminds us all of the faith and values that make life truly worthwhile." - Patricia Ann 'Pann' Baltz 1993 California Teacher of the Year 1993 Disney Teacher of the Year
Helen Davey, (Psychotherapist)"A poignant tale full of wisdom and psychological insight... the pictures are compelling." - Helen Davey, PhD. MFT Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychotherapy
"The Richest Kid In The Poorhouse is a well-written and illustrated book with an important message for today's kids. The engaging story and fun-filled artwork will keep kids attention to the last page. Like all good children's stories, this one can be read on several levels -both as a simple morality tale, and as an allegory of our deeper relationship with Christ. A great book for the whole family to enjoy together. I recommend The Richest Kid In The Poorhouse highly." - Rev. Vikki Randall, Associate Pastor for Children & Families
