Category Description for God, I Need to Talk to You About...:

These colorful little books by Susan K. Leigh and Dan Carr teach kids important life lessons and how to deal with challenging situations in a friendly, colorful way. They cover a variety of issues, all written from a child's point of view and using simple language. Each book points out God's love and forgiveness while teaching why certain behaviors are bad and providing Scripture verses to emphasize the central theme. The verses are in NIV and are presented on every few pages. The easy to read text points out the consequences of different sins or what to do in particular situations in a kid-centered way. They share stories about a young boy or girl who runs into trouble and learns how to overcome the difficulty or ask for forgiveness. The full-color, glossy pages hold illustrations similar to those found in comic books. Even though these booklets are small, they get to the point and are approachable; perfect for sharing with kids. Each book is 4.5" x 5.5", 16 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

Love, but tiny
This was my own fault for not reading the description closer, and even when I did, it didn't dawn on my how little they would be. They are about the size of a book you might get from a happy meal. The story is very good though, my son is Autistic and I love pulling one out when he is having a rough time.

Like most households with small children our family struggles with the topics addressed in the �God I Need To Talk To You About� series We have purchased disrespect lying laziness stealing paying attention bad temper and whining (now you know all our secrets)! I added two or three of these books onto each order I made last year depending on what bad habit we were really working on Only one sinful trait is focused on per book (thank goodness!) Each book is written from the point of view of a child about 10 years old who has had a conflict and is being instructed on how to improve it They are written as a prayer in which the child discusses with the Lord his bad habit and what his parents have instructed and how he feels about all this On a few pages of each book in the drawings and not part of the main text are some pertinent Scriptures showing the two sides of the problem For instance in our dog-eared sad worn-out copy of "G I N T T T Y A Whining " there are these three Scriptures: "A fool's mouth is his undoing" (Proverbs 18:7) "A wise man keeps himself under control" (Proverbs 29:11) and "The quiet words of the wise are more to be heeded" (Ecclesiastes 9:17) As a homeschool mom I really like the �God I Need To Talk To You About� series I initially bought these little books to just read over with my kids I figured that they would just be an inexpensive lesson that we�d read through once or twice However they quickly became much more than that! There has been a hundred times when we break from our educational plans and work on character issues for a while The small size of these books makes it easy to keep them handy (Ours are in a small shoebox on the school table that also holds our erasers rulers paper clips and the like) Whenever there is a disruptive issue- say whining about the perceived length of a math worksheet- I pull out the little book and read it to her If the behavior persists my daughter has to read it to me If there is still a problem she then has to read me the contrasting Scriptures only We haven't yet come to the point where I've had her write out the Scriptures! After that if they are still struggling I would say call it a day and go have your favorite beverage! It can be hard to keep Scripture in the forefront of our discipline when we just want the behavior to STOP! These little books really help me to stay calm cool and God-glorifying in the hard moments of homeschooling my kids
