This week in chapel, we read “Jesus Wants to be Your Buddy” by Markelle. Markelle is the niece of a former preschool family. Her book is a sweet story about a boy who plants a “sonflower” with Jesus. As he watches his “sonflower” grow bigger and bigger, his friendship with Jesus also grows. We love reading this book to our students!
