When You Want To Fit In

Halle Hedgehog has a group of school friends she sits with at lunch and plays with at recess.  One day, the whole group excludes another girl and decides to be mean to her.  This bothers Halle, but she doesn’t say anything because she doesn’t want to be excluded, too.  Halle’s teacher Mr. Owl talks to her about who she really needs to fit in with, and how she can speak out against bullying because Jesus is with her.

Parents and children will learn concrete, grace-based ways to deal with the pressures of fitting in.  Edited by Paul David Tripp, Halle Takes a Stand ends with a special section that guides Christian parents in teaching their children to respond with faith when fear or the overwhelming desire to fit in takes hold in their hearts.

By providing biblical help and hope to issues every child faces through vivid illustrations and a story based on a different animal family, even the youngest child will be engaged.  Each story offers practical ways to follow Jesus in difficult situations.  Instead of a moralistic message, young readers are encouraged to develop a real relationship with the God who cares for them.

Halle Takes a Stand, along with all of the Good News for Little Hearts books, will become a lifelong gift for parents and children, as well as teachers, biblical counselors, and anyone hoping to provide concrete, grace-based help for young children.
