The Pirate And The Firefly (Paperback)Tara McClary Reeves & Amanda Jenkins
Teach your kids to choose their friends wisely and that God's path is the true path to wisdom!
Oliver loves pretending to be a pirate, but learns that blindly following others doesn’t leave him with a good feeling inside.
In this swashbuckling tale, Phineas the firefly teaches Oliver that true friends don’t tempt us to do wrong or dangerous things. The young pirate is taken on a Scripture adventure through Psalm 1:1-3 and learns that making wise choices leads to the best kind of treasure.
Through it all, Captain Oliver learns that following God’s path is the true path to wisdom!
Parents can teach kids about choosing friends wisely thanks to the helpful questions and an activity featured at the back of the book.
