- Every kid should have! by JEANNIE on 6/8/2015
This is a book that is good for any kid and their parent reading it. This is a great book to show how God always watches over us and takes care of us. He has the bigger picture in his hands; one we might not see. We have to go through dark times to see what might grow from his plants..
- Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 10/16/2014
If you are a sappy sentimental momma like me, I would suggest having a box of tissue handy when first reading this book. The story centers around Little Fox, Little Seed, and the Farmer. Little Seed is very content to live in his comfy seed packet in the warm and dry shed. He knows his environment and what to expect day after day. Kind of like you and I in our comfy houses.
Little Fox has a nice and cozy den that he lives in but it can be scary when the storms come. On one such stormy day Little Fox seeks out the shed for shelter and meets Little Seed. Before you know it they become the very best of friends.
All is well until one day the Farmer, who by the way is " always good and always kind" decides it is time to plant the seed. Suddenly Little Seed finds himself in a place he's never been and he's scared. The farmer assures him that he knows what's best and to trust him. Trust is easy in a nice and safe environment, but when the place you find yourself is unknown it can be terrifying.
Little Fox doesn't know what has happened to his new friend. Kind of like how we mommas feel when our little one is out of our sight. Is everything okay? Will my little one be safe? But for those of us that trust in the Father, we have the assurance that He is always watching even when we don't realize it. The same can be said about the Farmer in the story.
Before long Little Seed began to flourish in his new environment. In fact he eventually grows into a beautiful tree that provides great pleasure for his friend Little Fox. By trusting the Farmer, Little Seed grew to be what he was designed to be.
I love the message that this book helps us instill in our kids. When the Father is looking out after you, there is absolutely nothing that escapes His attention. We can trust Him because He is always good and kind and He is watching over us even in the dark and scary places.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
