The Little Critter books have been favorites of mine since I was a little girl. It's always great fun to read with my kids the same stories I enjoyed. It's also exciting that there are new Little Critter books still being made today. The Inspired Kids books are a faith-based series teaching young ones timeless messages and strong morals featuring our favorite Little Critter characters.
The two newest in the series are
*Faith-inspired message shows kids the importance
of thankfulness and forgiveness
*Available in both softcover ($3.99) and board book ($9.99)
I don't know about you but in my family, both of these life lessons are ones that my kiddos sometimes need some help with. Overall, I feel like my husband and I have raised a pretty thankful bunch so far. They're all good kids. But, reinforcement is always a great thing, which is why I've loved these two Little Critter books. I like that they open the door for discussion. For example, the first time we read Being Thankful I could tell that my son Josh was pondering the lesson. He grew quiet towards the end of the book. When I asked him about it, he said it reminded him of a time he wanted me to buy him another super hero toy, but he knew he already had a lot of them and I told him no. He remembered being upset, but after we read this story, he said it made more sense to him.
Lesson learned. And perhaps it will be a lesson to relearn and relearn. But the seeds have been planted, and that's what is important.
We All Need Forgiveness
Based on Matthew 6:14, Little Critter learns why forgiveness helps heal the one who does the forgiving just as much as the one who needs forgiveness.
Based on Psalm 107:1, this book will show children what gratitude is and why we should be thankful for all of the blessings God has given us.
**********************************Have there been times that you or your children have offered up or experienced either forgiveness or thankfulness? I'd love to hear about them!
