Reassurance

I received a free copy of this book from Tommy Nelson for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own. 

Changes are so scary. They're scary for kids too! Even the kids from the best families with the biggest faith in God can feel frightened and anxious over new things: moving, a new baby, a trip, etc. The sad things and the exciting things and the bad things can all cause anxiety for your little people. As parents we sometimes want to shelter them from fear but a better response is to help them learn how to deal with fear because even as adults we have to face our fears at times.

The unlikely duo of a Little Fox and a Little Seed can help your children feel reassured in tough times. Little Seed doesn't want to leave his seed packet and Little Fox is afraid of the shadows. Together they form a safe friendship and find peace until Little Seed has to go to a dark, messy place. Little Fox can't see or help his friend and Little Seed can't change his circumstances. They soon learn the Farmer was watching after them all along and knew what was best for them. Now they are happier than ever before and they've learned to trust.

It Will be Okay : Trusting God Through Fear and Change, Lysa TerKeurst

Lysa TerKeurst has written this distinct story in It Will Be Okay to help reassure kids that changes are sometimes necessary but even the scariest changes can turn out okay. Her sweet story lets children know that even the most frightening things in life can lead to sunny skies and better days.

Speedy loved this book. He read it before bed and told me all about it the next morning. He shares my anxiety-proned-ness (that's a word right?) and so he could totally commiserate with Little Fox and Little Seed. I'm so glad he has this story to refer to when he's feeling unsettled. In the beginning of the book is a list of 10 Bible verses to learn with your child. I'm so glad to have this reference in one place.  The illustrations by Natalia Moore just totally enhance the story. They are so adorable and detailed and calm. All together this is a wonderful bedtime story.

  4. My children rarely got really scared, but when they did we would turn on a closet light, say a prayer, and re-tuck into bed. This looks like a wonderful book. I would love to win a copy for my church library!
