Back of Book: Parables for Kids Let Adam Raccoon and King Aren the Lion help your kids learn biblical truth. Children will see themselves in rascally, fun-loving Adam who wants to follow his King, but finds it so easy to stray. The wise, loving King Aren will remind them of Jesus, their King.
My Review: I love the Adam Raccoon books by Glen Keane. Adam wants to go to the circus but King Aren asks him to wait. Adam goes without King Aren. And learns a hard lesson. Adam is just like us--trying so hard to please the King. Then something will come along and before he knows it....Boom! he's gotten into a mess of trouble. But each time King Aren wisely and lovingly counsels Adam and then Adam is forgiven for his mischief. I like the fact that Adam is forgiven BUT there is a consequence to his actions. A great lesson in this story that adults and children alike will relate to. Definite 5 stars!
