For all those Little Critter fans out there, I have two great faith based books to share with you today available from Tommy Nelson and Mercer Mayer.
In It’s True , Little Critter learns the importance of being honest. It might make you seem cool to stretch the truth a little bit, but in the end there are always consequences when you lie. When Little Critter tells his friends that his grandpa owns a plane, he leaves out the very important detail regarding its size. In the end, he has to ask forgiveness for exaggerating. His friends are disappointed at first, but it all works out when everyone gets a chance to fly grandpa’s model plane.
In You Go First , Little Critter sees the value in putting others first. It might be nice to be number one, but when you let others go ahead of you it makes you feel good and helps build friendships. When Little Critter constantly pushes his way to the front of the line or to be first in the race, he finds that top place can be a lonely one. As he begins to stand back and let others in front of him, Little Critter finds that it’s much more fun for everyone when you share the spotlight and take turns being first.
I always enjoy the light humor in the Little Critter books. The pictures say more than the words do. I particularly love the characters’ facial expressions. I think these books are great for kids because they teach lessons in ways that are fun and entertaining. As soon as I received these books in the mail, my five-year-old took them and began to read them. She was so disappointed that she had to stop in the middle of one to eat her dinner that she said:
“Save my spot please, Mom. I’m not finished.”
The smile I gave my husband when she said that was a mile long. I think it’s clear that my recommendation of these books is a high one. I love how the classic, familiar characters were used to teach faith based lessons and I think you will too!
