From the Publisher:
"Zeal and excitement are a part of every child. This book celebrates a young child's enthusiasm to put into practice the words of Christ: to feed and clothe the poor; help the needy; and love one's neighbor.

As Thomas shows his family the items that he has packed into his suitcase after hearing a stirring homily at church, they marvel at his inventiveness and loving heart. Thomas is traveling to the Kingdom of Heaven, and he knows what it takes to get there! Along with his suitcase, Thomas and his family figure out a way to accomplish the almost impossible goal that Thomas is so excited about.

The Suitcase captures bits and pieces of Christ's parables in a story format, familiarizing the reader with Christ's Heavenly Kingdom in a natural, subtle way.

"With heart-melting prose and joy-filled illustrations, The Suitcase captures and conveys the spirit of Christ's gospel teachings with a story that belongs in every home. Thomas and his family teach us that God's kingdom is all around us and that each of us, know matter how young, have a role to play in loving the world around us."
—Lisa M. Hendey, founder of and author of the Chime Travelers Series

"Jesus teaches through story and metaphor all throughout the Gospel and it presents a challenge for our children who understand everything literally when they're young. This book captures the innocence of our children but also the unique gifts they offer in spreading God's love. The illustrations beautifully capture their energy and imagination, and the story teaches us all about the kingdom of heaven."
