New children's book series - Part 2!
Last week I emailed you guys a preview for book one (about whining) in my new children’s series co-authored with my friend, Al Roland. I hope you enjoyed it! Today I’d like to tell you about book two (about lying) and offer a preview of that one.
Chloe and the Closet of Secrets
In book two, Chloe has a sneaky habit of making up stories. She thinks it’s no big deal, but one day crazy little fluffs appear every time she tells a lie. Chloe starts stuffing the fluffs in her closet, but soon it’s almost ready to burst. Not only that, she realizes that her lies are sinful and are hurting her relationships. But after her father confesses his own lie and asks God for forgiveness, Chloe gains the courage to let out all of her secrets.
Most children (and adults too) struggle with being completely truthful. Even though we know it’s wrong to not tell the whole truth, it’s still hard to help a child understand why. This book gives parents practical suggestions for helping their children (and themselves) learn to speak the truth. The parent resource page at the end of Chloe and the Closet of Secrets: A Book about Lying gives a biblical framework to help children understand what a lie is, some reasons that they lie, and the power of confession and forgiveness.
Children will love the silly story with its bright, fun illustrations, and in the process be encouraged to always tell the truth. Chloe and the Closet of Secrets is part of the new Teaching Children to Use Their Words Wisely series I hope you enjoy this preview!
