Max Lucado s books for children are exceptional every child deserves to have them read out loud to them and every parent deserves to experience their message This is another children s book from Max Lucado that contains a powerful message In a primitive time five orphans live in a village For mutual support and protection the five siblings had banded together The village was in a kingdom and when the king learned of their plight he announced that he would adopt them and would be coming to take them away That announcement was met with great excitement and the children all decided to work very hard at honing their skills in order to impress the king One of the boys was an accomplished woodcarver so he set out to create an astounding item of wood art One of his sisters was a painter so she began developing

One of the greatest gifts parents can give their children is the assurance that Mom and Dad love them just as they are apart from anything that they do But telling them once won't make it sink in Kids need to be reminded of it over and over until those words get inside their heartsIn the same way children need to hear again and again that their Heavenly Father loves them and wants to spend time with them even if they're no.
