Through it all, Captain Oliver and his firefly Phineas learn that following God's way is the true way to wisdom!

Publisher's Description

Based on Psalm 1:1-3:

1 Oh, the joys of those who do not
      follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners,
or join in with mockers.
 2 But they delight in the law of the Lord,
meditating on it day and night.
 3 They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit in each season.
Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.

Oliver loves pretending to be a pirate, but learns that blindly following others doesn't leave him with a good feeling inside.

In this Scripture adventure, kids join Oliver as he rights the wrongs done by his so-called Pirate friends.

Through it all, Captain Oliver learns that following God's way is the true way to wisdom!

The second book in the Firefly Chronicle series brings entire sections of Scripture to life via imaginative, fantastical stories that use a passage from Psalms to help children understand and applly biblical truths to their lives. Each book in the series will depict Oliver wearing a different costume as he imagines and adventures his way through God's Word with the help of Phineas, the firefly. The series will address the felt needs of children ages 4 to 8 including courage, confidence, friendship and more with biblical truths about God.

    I LOVED The Pirate and the Firefly!

    For me, its reminiscent of Jiminy Crickets wisdom for Pinocchio but with Godly principles and example. PERFECT!

    I dont know which I loved more, the story or the illustrations. The story, a tale of a very realistic young man following a path he knows to be wrong, gives young readers and listeners the opportunity to see that just because our friends may seem to be doing something fun, they can quickly lead us down a wrong path. The fun and playful illustrations drive us right into the story where we share in the adventure first-hand.

    The only downfall to this adorable book is that our little pirate doesnt reap consequences for the seeds he has sown.

    This book by: Tara McClary Reeves & Amanda Jenkins with Illustrations by: Daniel Fernandez is the second in a series. The back cover asks the question, "What should a pirate do when following his mates means not following God?" Throughout the book, Pirate Oliver follows along with whatever Cap'n Cole dictates (stealing & bullying). He realizes that what he and his friends are doing is wrong and continually asks questions, such as, "Mom, can kids get sent to the brig?" His mom reminds him that she loves him and God loves him --all the time. After a couple of days of being a bad pirate, Oliver talks to his firefly friend, Phineas, who gives wise counsel. Phineas reminds Oliver of scripture verses and encourages him to do the right thing by following God. Oliver imagines himself leading his buccaneer friends to do good and right the wrongs they committed.

    The full page illustrations in this book are detailed and brightly colored! There is several passages of scripture (NLT) woven into the story towards the end of the book. There is a "Parent Connection" on the inside of the back cover. It includes further discussion scripture, questions, and activities for parents and children to work on together. This is an excellent story with a great moral lesson. I would highly recommend this for younger kids who are influenced by their peers. I will be reading this with my daughters to help encourage them to choose their friends wisely.

    In accordance with the Federal Trade Commission I am required to disclose that B&H Kids provided this book for free in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
