First of all, for the price, you can get each of these character books so inexpensively. Second, they include the sin along with a prayer at the end of the book. Third, they are easily relatable for kids and they love them. Fourth, we own every single one and they work great with our kids. We have used these for about five years now. They work, people!!!
I don't really understand any of the negative reviews. It's a small book , but at the price of $1.00, it's just what a person needs. You can carry them along in your purse or keep them in a place that is easily gotten to for when you are dealing with discipline.
When your child is whining, talking back, or not going to bed, pull out the appropriate book and read it to them. They get it and you are helping them work on their heart. These are a great purchase and I highly recommend them to all parents with young children ages 2-9.
We have an older series that is about 8"x8" and was expecting a paperback book about that same size with same content. This was more of a booklet 3-1/2"x4-1/2" . The focus is on asking God to help us to not be that way (whining or disrespectful), which is wonderful, but with very few pages, barely enough content to make the point. Decided not to give to my 3 yr old granddaughter for Christmas but will add to Grandma's book collection for when she visits. I reccommend the full size book if available.
WHINING: What human does not whine? When my granddaughter (age:5yrs.) listened to this easy-to-understand book, she realized that she is an occasional whiner. She laughed at the illustrations and, at the conclusion of the book, was happy that she can pray about whining. The book is brief, well illustrated & supported with scriptures. WE LIKE IT!
I used this book in Sunday School with a movie, it worked really well with ages 3 to grade 3. It was just long enough to give a bit of a basis on the subject we were teaching, it kept the kids attention really well. We've enjoyed all of the books that are in this series.
