All he ever wanted is a place to belong--a home and a family. Life is tough for him, but the one thing he holds onto is his grandmother's "strong words," and a handful of mustard seeds she gave him that he hopes he can plant one day to grow into a tree of his own. As his fortunes slowly begin to turn, and with the help of his friends, he learns a lesson of teamwork and what it really means to stick it out till the end. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
Run, Jeremiah Run! is a story of faith and hope. Jeremiah is a young boy who finds himself running into life's toughest situations. As a foster child, life for him is a garbage bag filled with his things, a new school, and worst of all finding a new family. All he has ever wanted is a place to call his own, his own family, and a life of adventure without getting into trouble.
Although life is tough for him, he holds on to his grandmother's promise- the promise of a handful of mustard seeds being planted one day to grow into a tree of his own.
After being expelled from school again, he thinks that no one will ever want him to be a part of their family. But before long with the help of his friends, he learns a lesson of teamwork and what it really means to stick it out till the end.
