Continuing our series on great new books for children- I have a wonderful book for you today,
and a special giveaway from the author!
Catie's Secret (Tate Publishing, 2013) is the second book in the children's series God's SecretGarden Adventures. Like the previous book, Benny's Angel,Catie's Secret invites young readers to join an exciting adventure while teaching a valuable lesson.
Catie Caterpillar looks different from any bug Herbie and Bella have ever seen. When Herbie makes fun of Catie, Mayor Benny shows him why he should not judge anyone by how they look. In the end, Catie reveals a secret and the bunnies learn the joy of forgiveness.
This is a wonderful book, that teaches kids about being different, and that exteriors do not tell you everything about a person, that you need to get to know them better to learn about them! This is a really apt book for young kids in school, who might want to make fun of a new kid, one who has difficulties, or who had a hard time in school! Miss Grace and I had a very long discussion after reading the book, and I was pleased at how she understood that making fun of someone is bullying, and frequently because the person doesn't know what they are talking about! This book would be great to read in class, at Sunday school, or for homeschoolers, to facilitate some great discussions! We highly recommend it!
