Children's LiteratureIn this dialog between parents and children, children are assured of God's love even if they do something wrong. The words of adults are in large print. The words of children appear as if printed by a child. Parents do not expect perfection because, "Even parents make mistakes," but children are encouraged to say they are sorry and make amends. In spite of bad behavior, from tantrums to stealing, God continues to welcome, love, and forgive. God helps one correct mistakes. The text is in rhymed, four-line verse. Large bright photographs of children show the various emotions involved in wrong doing and its aftermath. A lamb, mother and baby elephant, and a dog running off with a baseball cap stand in for the children in some tight spots. This book will be a helpful discussion starter on the subject. 2006, Skylight Paths Publishing, Ages 3 to 6.
