Zoe's Hiding Place: When You Are Anxious

 

Download a sample chapter of Zoe's Hiding Place

This beautifully illustrated book invites children to remember the Lord is near when they are anxious. Zoe, a fearful mouse, is worried about a class trip. As she talks with her parents, Zoe realizes she can turn to God for help. Papa Mouse gives her a verse from the "Great Book" that she can read when she is afraid.

She learns that she can tell God all about her fears, and he will comfort her. 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 are afraid.


"With the long walk to school before her, Zoe was free to dive into her book. She read a little, then walked a little, read and walked, imagining each and every detail. She barely noticed her friend, Layla, joining her along the way. Layla interrupted Zoe’s thoughts with her usual string of how do you do’s. 'Good morning, Zoe! What are you reading? Would you like to sit together in class?' Zoe happily replied, 'It’s my new favorite fairy tale! I’m trying to finish it by the end of the day. And, yes, I’d love to sit together in class!'..."


Zoe’s Hiding Place tells us that sometimes what we fear most really does happen, and it teaches us how to fight our worries with God’s promises. That message, coupled with its charming illustrations, make this book a powerful tool for parents to help their anxious children. We love this book, and plan to read it regularly with our own kids!

Download a sample chapter of Jax's Tail Twitches

Everyone gets frustrated when something important to them goes wrong. In Jaxs Tail Twitches, the whole Squirrel family ends up out of sorts when acorn gathering doesn’t go according to plan. Although Papa, Mama, Jax, and Caspian Squirrel all get angry, they also learn about the power of saying sorry, seeking forgiveness, remembering God’s words, and praying together.

Edited by David Powlison, Jaxs Tail Twitches ends with a special section that guides parents in teaching children how the gospel of Jesus Christ changes how we respond when life goes wrong. Also included is a tear-out page of Back Pocket Bible Verses that will help children and adults remember to turn to God for help when they are angry.


"Caspian and Jax Squirrel were sleeping soundly until an alarm clock broke the silence. They tumbled out of bed and raced to be the first to slide down to the kitchen. 'Get out of my way!' yelled Jax with his tail twitching. Caspian just laughed as he tripped Jax and slid down the branch to the warm kitchen. Jax yelled again, 'It’s not funny!' And 'I’m telling Mama!'..."


Jax’s Tail Twitches is a tremendous resource for children and parents who struggle with anger. The endearing illustrations draw children in to a storyline that uncovers both the sin of anger, and our need for forgiveness and reconciliation. The story walks us through what a right response to our anger looks like and provides a great starting point for discussions with your children. Definitely a must-read in our family!
