"I enjoyed this book and even learned something new about some of the prophets. Perfect for children under the age of 5 but I think a great book for anyone to read to learn an interesting fact about each prophet. My son (he is 3) enjoyed this book and I am excited to share it with my nursery class on Sunday. I liked this book best because not only is it fun but it teaches about the prophets and helps young people get to know them."
"There are many LDS board books available featuring the scriptures, Articles of Faith and temples. I think I own almost every one of them because they are good teaching tools for the younger set. I Know the Modern Prophets, however, is the first board book I've seen that teaches children about the latter-day prophets.
The book itself gives interesting, little known facts about each prophet from Joseph Smith to Gordon B. Hinckley. The best part of this book is that the facts are about these honorable men when they were young boys. Kids will relate to this book and enjoy learning more about the prophets as children like themselves.
The illustrations are nicely done, in a simplicitic yet modern style that will captivate any toddler and preschooler's attention. As an adult, it's refreshing to see a new illustrator in the LDS board book genre."
