Buster’s Ears Trip Him Up: When You Fail

*Disclaimer* I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

*I loved reading "Buster's Ears Trip Him up" with my 7 & 8 yr old daughters. I love that this book encourages children to a growing relationship with Jesus. 

In the back of the book, there is a section for parents that will help with when helping their children with failure. Some of the things mentioned in this section include; 

1) Failure is hard, but Jesus will help.

2) Having the wrong goal will trip us up.

3) Being "the best" Vs. "trying your best"

and more!

Also included in the back of the book is a page called "Back Pocket Bible Verses"

Make sure you grab a copy of this book for your child(ren) and read it with them!

Good News for Little Hearts is a new series of hardback, illustrated children’s books for three-to eight-year-olds—each centered on an animal family—bring gospel help and biblical counsel to families. The animal characters, colorful illustrations, and the real-life issues each animal family face will captivate children. The first three books address anxiety, anger, and failure, bringing biblical help and hope to issues every child faces. The last page of each book contains information for parents on how God, in his Word, helps children apply biblical truth to specific issues. Together children and parents will be guided by the stories into meaningful conversations about living by faith in the details of everyday life.

- Each story, based on a different animal family, will keep even the youngest child engaged.
- Brightly colored, fun illustrations welcome children into a detailed animal world.
- Each story helps children process a challenging situation with concrete, grace-based, help.
- Instead of moralism, children are offered a practical way to follow Jesus through a difficult situation.
- Based on CCEF’s model of hope and help that encourages a growing relationship with Jesus.

Buster was sure he was the fastest bunny in the meadow. But during a race at summer camp, nothing goes as planned and Buster gets tripped up. After his epic fall, his older sister, Ivy, helps him see that failure is an opportunity to grow. As Buster remembers God’s love, he is able to let go of others’ opinions and accept that it is okay to try your best but not always be the best. Edited by Edward T. WelchBuster’s Ears Trip Him Up: When You Fail ends with a special section that guides parents in teaching children how the gospel of Jesus Christ comforts and sustains us through failure and turns our focus away from ourselves and toward others. Also included is a tear-out page of Back Pocket Bible Verses that will remind children and adults of God’s love and help for those who get tripped up.
