Pups of the Spirit Children's Picture book
Pups of the Spirit
Genre: Children's Picture book
With adorable pups, kids will enjoy learning fruit of the spirit traits including Love, Joy, Peace, Kindness, Patience, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control in an easy-accessible way.
Nine Fruits of the Spirit would normally be difficult for little minds to keep track of, but now there are nine personable pups to make it easier and more fun. For puppy lovers and kids ages 4-8 comes a clever picture book that teaches children in a creative way about God’s special attributes for his people.
Each of the canines represents one of the Fruits of the Spirit, introduced one by one with playful rhyming text. Max is filled with love and likes to greet people with a sloppy smooch; Pete the basset hound is so peaceful he falls asleep; Gigi is soft and gentle with God’s creatures. Children, their families, and their teachers will fall in love with the “heavenly hounds” while learning how they can grow closer to God every day.
What an adorable children's book! Every page is filled with beautiful illustrations that will attract the young and old at heart. All nine puppies are cute and playful looking.
This is a great book to introduce our children to the Fruits of the Spirit. Each dog is named after a different fruit and demonstrates how he lives it out. It helps children see an example of how to live it out and with the cute puppies helps them focus on the story and remember the lessons learned. This can be a hard and overwhelming concept to teach children but this book is a great resource. This is a great book for 4-8 but short enough that toddlers can pay attention too. What a great book for every child's library.
