And Other Stories for the Young
This little treasure of a book, Breaking Through and Other Stories for the Young, is a creative collection of stories and poems that teaches us about the power of God’s salvation and how He can take the dead and the wretched and give them new life!
Amy Le Feuvre teaches the wonders of salvation in her first endearing story of the volume, Breaking
Through, by using a simple analogy of dead bulbs coming alive again and turning into beautiful blossoms. Our souls are hidden in the deadness of the sin of this cold world, but Christ raises us up as tender shoots that discover the warmth of the springtime sun.
Next, beloved author Hesba Stretton crafts the tale of How Apple-tree Court Was Won to demonstrate
God’s powerful love for us, that He would not spare His own son even for the worst of sinners.
Finally, S. W. Partridge paints a beautiful picture of a Christian’s character with his words in the poems from “Voices from the Garden,” as he looks to the blossoms around him as reminders of the promises found in scripture.

About the Lamplighter Rare Collector’s Series
Lamplighter stories are much more than good and wholesome reading for the family. The inspiring role models found in Lamplighter books show a child that outward compliance alone will not carry a child through the stresses and disappointments soon to be faced in adolescence and adulthood, nor are they a substitute for faith in Christ. As we learn of perseverance, courage, loyalty, humility, these are qualities to emulate and pursue, but as children read in stories of others like them trying their best and falling short, they will powerfully learn their need for the gospel. Though life is often not easy, we can be confident that each disappointment and trial is designed by a loving God for our good.
Lamplighter books are carefully designed to draw children back to the Bible, to ensure that each story reflects the character of God. Often, key Scriptures are referenced so that they may be stored in a child’s heart. Lamplighter volumes are recognizable right away by their beautiful, high-quality bindings. But the other unique feature of a Lamplighter book, in contrast to other publications of the same title, is that the Lamplighter editions have been enhanced with helpful footnotes and woven with threads of Biblical truths that will be etched into an awakened moral conscience. These characteristics are what make our Lamplighter Collection so unique and highly valued.
