Gus, a raccoon who loves all things sweet, learns what happens when you want something too much. After Gus gets caught taking candy from the store, Papa reminds him that temptation might be strong for us, but it's not too strong for Jesus. Both Gus and Papa can ask Jesus for help when they want something too much.

The last page contains information for parents on how God, in his Word, helps us turn to Jesus when we are tempted. Together children and parents will be guided into meaningful conversations about living by faith in the details of everyday life. Also included is a tear-out page of "Back Pocket Bible Verses" that will give children a practical way to remember God's words when they want something too much.

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 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.
