An illustrated reader retelling the story of Jesus meeting with Zacchaeus.
Zacchaeus is determined to seek out a way to see Jesus even though a towering and discouraging crowd is in his way. But God cares and Jesus calls him down from the tree to meet with him – a meeting that sets him on a new path of hope and encouragement.
A reassuring story to help young children talk to parents or those who care for them about their hopes and challenges, find support to persevere, and know that Jesus too finds a way to be with them.
The God cares series provides a Biblical approach to discussing emotions and behaviour with children to nurture an attitude of wellness.
Children at different ages approach things differently in their stages of emotional development, so this series works at two different levels: illustrated Readers aimed at 5-7 year olds and Chapter books aimed at 8+ years. Please note that children progress at different reading abilities and stages of emotional development so the age ranges are only a guide for parents and carers.
The Bible stories are retold reflecting on the emotions and encourages children to discuss and relate this within their situations. Sections at the back provide a reflective space for children and practical advice for parents and carers.
Debbie Duncan, author of The Art of Daily Resilience, Brave and Gifted, is a nurse and a teacher, and mother of four children. She has considerable insight into what constitutes resilience and bravery: the ability to cope, to stay on course, to bounce back. In her books she considers what is required for physical, mental, and spiritual durability, interweaving biblical teaching, prayers, with personal anecdote and sound advice. This she now applies specifically to support parents and carers raising children.
