It's pretty scary to see a new sibling wrapped in a glass box instead of a soft blanket. In this gentle story about a baby who arrives too soon, Sarah can see that Mommy and Daddy are worried, and that tiny Amy is sick. But her parents help her to see that God is with the family no matter what, even its newest, littlest member.
The Helping Kids Heal series is designed to help children cope with difficult life issues by letting them know that God is with them always. At the end of each book R. Scott Stehower, Ph.D., professor of psychology, Calvin College, and clinical psychologist, provides suggestions for parents and caregivers of hurting children. Recommended for ages 4 to 8.
This is a story to help young children understand when a new brother or sister is sick. It helps a child understand why Mommy is distressed, why Daddy is worried.
