My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Gus, a raccoon who loves all things sweet, learns what happens when you want something too much. After Gus gets caught taking candy from the store, Papa reminds him that temptation might be strong for us, but it s not too strong for Jesus. Both Gus and Papa can ask Jesus for help when they want something too much.
The last page contains information for parents on how God, in his Word, helps us turn to Jesus when we are tempted. Together children and parents will be guided into meaningful conversations about living by faith in the details of everyday life. Also included is a tear-out page of Back Pocket Bible Verses that will give children a practical way to remember God's words when they want something too much.
Gus Loses His Grip: When You Want Something Too Much is part of the Great News for Little Hearts series. I thought it was a fabulous book to teach young readers valuable lessons with the emphasis of faith. I loved the delightful illustrations that went along with the story.
Gus Loses His Grip: Whey You Want Something Too Much gets five plus stars from me. I highly recommend it for young readers six and under.
I received this from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
