Lets start with the artwork, the graphics are just sensational! The colorful 3/D animation is first class with so much happening in the background of each page you can sit with your child and pick out many different things going on in the background. All printed in a high quality hard back book with beautiful dust cover.
Second the writing style is very entertaining, as it is written with a Suessical rhyming pace that is very creative and flows off the tongue for a fun read with your kids.
Lastly, and maybe most importantly, the story itself is a great moral tale of how to have trust and faith in God can help anyone to face and conquer fears that may come your way. An important and terrific moral message to help guide your kids. On the final page the writers have added different discussion questions to interact with your children and a reference to the biblical story of Gideon on which this tale is based, as well as a recipe to make your own Black Bean Chili!
This is a great read with your kids or in the Christian School classroom. Loved the book, you will too! Can't wait for the second book in the series!
The graphics and fun and keep the kids tuned in (including my 3 year old) and the story line is a blast to read. It's written in rhyme with a nice beat. The last page includes questions for the kids to help them think more of the story, a recipe for black bean chili (featured in the story) and a game that mentions that there are 24 geckos hiding among the pages in the story (which also keeps the kids attention).
My kids love the western theme to this and let's face it, it's a easy accent to do for voices. I can't say enough good things about the book and hope they keep coming out with more. In fact, I'm purchasing the other one right now.
