Gus Loses His Grip
Gus, a raccoon who loves all things sweet, learns what happens when you want something too much. After Gus gets caught taking candy from the store, Papa reminds him that temptation might be strong for us, but it s not too strong for Jesus. Both Gus and Papa can ask Jesus for help when they want something too much.
The last page contains information for parents on how God, in his Word, helps us turn to Jesus when we are tempted. Together children and parents will be guided into meaningful conversations about living by faith in the details of everyday life. Also included is a tear-out page of Back Pocket Bible Verses that will give children a practical way to remember God's words when they want something too much.
A new series of hardback, illustrated children s books for three-to eight-year-olds each centered on an animal family bring gospel help and biblical counsel to families. The animal characters, colorful illustrations, and the real-life issues each animal family face will captivate children. The first three books address anxiety, anger, and failure, bringing biblical help and hope to issues every child faces.
My thoughts: Another winner in the Good News for Little Hearts series! My children and I enjoyed this story of a little racoon who has a hard time controlling his sweet tooth. When his greed gets out of control, his father pulls him aside and talks to him about the danger of always wanting more to fill the emptiness in our hearts. I appreciated that both of his parents realized they weren't exempt from that void.
Filled with wisdom from the Bible, this is an excellent book to read to your little ones!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. This is my honest review.
