~ Xanthe remembers a time when she argued with her brother Thomas and, even though she has said sorry, she is worried that God won't forget what she has done. Her mum illustrates how far God moves the things we do wrong away from us by letting go of a purple helium-filled balloon. Xanthe imagines how far it will go, across oceans and continents! In this delightful story for 5 to 7's, Xanthe and the Purple Balloon illustrates the meaning of Psalm 103:8-12. The simple, cheerful illustrations complement the storyline beautifully.
