KT5 Stars Out Of 5February 24, 2008KTThis little book is the perfect length for small children. It gave examples that were a little new to us, but helpful nonetheless. We picked up a great Bible verse from reading it that we had not noticed before - and was perfectly timely for our situation!
Wendy5 Stars Out Of 5January 29, 2008WendyWhat a neat tool to use as we talk to our kids about whining! It uses scripture and is written as if the child is talking to God. I love it! My 2 and 4 year old 'get it'. They can even 'read' it to each other. And we can now use some of the same examples from the book to explain to them why we don't allow whining. Great! The whole series is actually great!
Annie Mccolloch4 Stars Out Of 5January 25, 2008Annie MccollochWe are using these small books for teaching lessons in our Team Kids class on Wednesday night at church. The kids seem to like them and they provide a springboard to discuss many Bible verses and the lessons in them.
Tanya Dennis4 Stars Out Of 5December 6, 2007Tanya DennisFollowing suit with other books in the "God, I Need to Talk to You about ..." series, this book reads like a prayer spoken by the main character. In this book, the main character is a young girl.She begins her conversation with God by saying she has a habit that needs to be broken. "I whine too much." She keeps getting in trouble for it. Even now, she's in time-out for whining. She knows it's not right; that it "annoys people and is disrespectful", but still she has a tough time not doing it. She tells God she doesn't mean to whine, but she does because she wants people to listen to her or help her right away. She confesses: "Sometimes I feel like I'm not very important." The prayer concludes with her asking God for forgiveness and asking Him to help her be more patient and respectful toward others.The illustrations by Bill Clark are done in comic book style with bold outlines and plenty of expressions.What I Like: The specificity of this series of books. It's easy to find the exact problem your child may struggle with and grab a book to address the issue directly. I like that the books are told in first person from the child's perspective. I also appreciate the explanations of underlying reasons. By helping the children articulate how they're feeling, parents can more easily address the root causes of the problem.What I Dislike: The size. The book is paperback, only 4.5 x 5.5". That's small! It is easily lost in a pile of books. But -- considering the price of the book, I can't complain. Making the book bigger or putting it in an easier-to-find boardbook or hardback would raise the price exponentially.Overall Rating: Very good.
