"The perfect baptism gift for an eight-year-old boy"

Shelah Mastny Miner and her eight-year-old son Isaac review iPlates Volume 1 on Shelah Books It.

Our favorite parts:

From Isaac: "Wow. That was cool!"

From Shelah:  "A story a prepubescent boy would love, with plenty of blood and piles of arms and made up Nephite curse replacements."

"As entertainment/a gentle push toward doctrinal stories for a Mormon? I think it succeeds"
