Sweet Story with Great Illustrations

This is sweet story about a married couple in Mexico who have no children of their own.  They choose to share the love in their hearts with the children who live in their village.  The children are invited into Willie Juan and Ana’s home where the adults spend time and listen to what the children have to say.

The focus of the story is how the children reply to Willie Juan’s question about what”…Abba will ask you…” when they get to heaven.  Each child has a different answer, of course.  Some struggle with God’s love for them.  Willie Juan and Ana are a living example to the children of God’s love for each of them.

This is a really good story.  I read it to my 4 and 5 year old sons and my 3 year old niece.  While they enjoyed the pictures, I think they didn’t really get the point of the story.  So I would recommend it for older children; we will try it again in a couple of years.

Sopapillas are mentioned throughout the story.  For some extra fun while reading this story try making some!  Click here for a recipe, or visit
