‘It was nearly the end of the summer holidays. In two weeks, Mummy was going to have her new baby.’
Getting a new baby brother or sister is really exciting! But sometimes such a big life-change can make us feel scared or worried too. Read about how Mummy, Daddy, Joshua and Rosie are getting ready for their new baby and discover what God says about how valuable we are to Him.
This new series of softback, illustrated books is ideal for two-to seven-year-olds. They cover real life events and show how the Bible can be used to point little-ones to their Heavenly Father in every situation. Through clear illustration and simple language that children will understand, these books share theological truths that will help children become familiar with the Bible and bring gospel help and biblical counsel to families.
When a family anticipates the arrival of a new baby people are often happy and eagerly awaiting the new bundle of joy. But there might be times when children are anxious that the new baby will get all the attention and they’ll be left out. This little book looks at Psalm 139:14–16 and it teaches children about their identity in God, how He knows and love people. This book will encourage children to see that they are valuable to God, that He created them and that He loves them.
I hope there are more books to come, because the initial three are very promising. They look at three common experiences of small children: taking part in Sports Day, preparing to welcome a new sibling and having a bad dream. Each one is written simply, in language which appeals, with a really straightforward message of how what the Bible teaches us about God can help us when we’re feeling proud, nervous, left out or scared. The stories expand upon a problem encountered by Rosie or her brother. When things come to a head, either Mum or Dad are there to listen, provide reassurance, and point them to one or two helpful verses from the Bible. I love the simplicity of these books, and I don’t mean that in a patronising way. They don’t try to do too much and thus go over the head of the children they’re designed for. Each one has a very clear aim: a problem that kids will relate to, followed by a Bible passage which can be easily understood and applied. The Rosie books have a subtler function too: they can provide us parents with some examples of how to share God naturally with our kids, how we can base their understanding of the world on what God has revealed in the Bible, and what kind of language we can use. These stories appealed to my 4 year old boys, who loved the illustrations and could easily follow the clear storyline. Even my 7 year old, who realised she was probably a bit old for the target audience, admitted to enjoying them quite a lot! I would suggest that 2–5s would get the most from the Rosie books, but for an older child with a lower emotional age, I’m sure they would go down well too.
