"Pauly Panda" by Penny Bellofatto is a beautifully illustrated children's book. The story is a simple one about friendship, and having faith in Jesus. My 5 year old grandson doesn't like to read or be read to, but he has asked me to ready "Pauly Panda" several times.

It is beautifully illustrated for children. It immediately draws their attention to each page. The story teaches and inspires children to be kind to one another TO LISTEN TO ONE ANOTHER AND REACH OUT TO HELP WHEN SOMEONE IS IN NEED. It is a great teaching tool for children and prayerfully a lifelong reminder for adults. Well done…thank you.

Pauly Panda

Pauly Panda is a baby panda with a lot of curiosity. He has never explored the forest he lives in, but he is timid and not sure what is out there. He does venture out one day to find out, and the adventure begins.
