    I don't recommend as a Christian book for kids.
    August 6, 2012
    truthBtold
    This book left me with an erie feeling. It is inappropriate for children ages 4-6. The first thing my child said is that the picture Little Bear drew is scary. Why would he be sending a devil picture to his grandmother? Although they got married, the repeated skunk kissing was an adult theme. Children need help finding other things to do if they think they should be kissing each other repeatedly, and need to know to tell someone it if an adult is kissing them. It also is irresponsible in regards to communicable diseases. I absolutely do not recommend this as a Christian book for kids.
