Tommy Nelson brings us another wonderful children's book,
that helps parents to deal with our children's emotions!
In the end, it will be okay because God is always with us.
Whether we like it or not, growing up brings change. For many children, this conjures fears that are sometimes real and sometimes imagined. How can kids learn that even when they face new and unfamiliar situations, they don’t have to be afraid?
Little Seed and Little Fox are facing changes and brand new circumstances—and they don’t like it one bit! Through this unlikely friendship, children will discover that no matter how new or fearful their circumstances, God is always with them. The whimsical art by Natalia Moore will put a smile on kids’ faces and put their minds at ease. Just as Little Seed and Little Fox learn to trust that the Farmer is good and kind, children will also learn to trust God.
This book is aimed at kids ages 4-8, and is great for early readers. The book really helps kids know that God will be with them through every stop as they grow, no matter what happens, or how scared they area. It is an adorable story- very similar to a fable, and one that will entrance young children. I was thrilled to see how Fox and Seed stayed friends, even after seed changed into a tree- that is a VERY valuable lesson for kids to learn before tweenhood and peer pressure kicks in- to remember the person inside is still the same, though their outside may change. The book is very nuanced, and will definitely spur quite a few parent/child conversations while teaching the one constant- God is ALWAYS with us! Miss Grace and I highly recommend this book!
