Henry Says Goodbye
Henry the hedgehog loves his pet ladybug. She keeps him company and entertains him, his family, and his friends with her flying tricks. But one day, he has to say good-bye to his ladybug. Henry and his whole family are sad, but they learn to go to Jesus with their sadness and ask him to comfort them.
The last page contains information for parents on how God, in his Word, helps us turn to Jesus when we are sad. 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 are sad.
A new series of hardback, illustrated, Christian children's books for three-to eight-year-olds each centered on an animal family bringing gospel help and biblical counsel to families. The animal characters, colorful illustrations, and the real-life issues each animal family face will captivate children and help them begin a stronger relationship with Jesus Christ and God. The first three books address anxiety, anger, and failure, bringing biblical help and hope to issues every child faces.
My thoughts: This might be my favorite book out of the series, since my family has experienced losing a loved on in the past few years, so I know the importance of talking to children about grieving in healthy ways. This book is about Henry and how he loses his beloved pet ladybug. It's hard to deal with the sadness and anger, but after talking it out with his parents, they celebrate his pet and he finds how healing it can be to talk about our loses. I like that this book talks about grieving in a way that can be simple for young children. It does a wonderful job of dealing with a tough topic.
I received this book from the publisher. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
