How do you teach young children about being born again (John 3:3), and conformed to the image of Jesus Christ (Rom. 8:29)?

This is the children’s story of Umiko, a daughter born in the ugly town of Minikui, just below the beautiful mountain. She always thought she was ugly, and her parents even told her she was. But one day the Emperor’s son Kioshi came to town to choose for himself a bride. But Umiko thought she was too ugly to ever be chosen by the Emperor’s son, and the town was filled with daughters far more lovely than she was. And so she hid herself behind a mask.

This is the first fully illustrated children’s book by Puritan Publications teaching the doctrine of conversion to young children. It also includes a Bible study section at the end of the work for adults to aid them in teaching their children the major themes of the book.
