    Everyone gets frustrated when something important to them goes wrong. In Jax's Tail Twitches, the whole Squirrel family ends up out of sorts when acorn gathering doesn't go according to plan. Although Papa, Mama, Jax, and Caspian Squirrel all get angry, they also learn about the power of saying sorry, seeking forgiveness, remembering God's words, and praying together.

    Edited by David Powlison, Jax's Tail Twitches ends with a special section that guides parents in teaching children how the gospel of Jesus Christ changes how we respond when life goes wrong. Also included is a tear-out page of Back Pocket Bible Verses that will help children and adults remember to turn to God for help when they are angry.

    A new series of hardback, illustrated children's books for three-to eight-year-olds - each centered on an animal family - bring gospel help and biblical counsel to families. The animal characters, colorful illustrations, and the real-life issues each animal family face will captivate children. The first three books address anxiety, anger, and failure, bringing biblical help and hope to issues every child faces. The last page of each book contains information for parents on how God, in his Word, helps children apply biblical truth to specific issues. Together children and parents will be guided by the stories into meaningful conversations about living by faith in the details of everyday life.

    • Each story, based on a different animal family, will keep even the youngest child engaged.
    • Brightly colored, fun illustrations welcome children into a detailed animal world.
    • Each story helps children process a challenging situation with concrete, grace-based, help.
    • Instead of moralism, children are offered a practical way to follow Jesus through a difficult situation.
    • Based on CCEF's model of hope and help that encourages a growing relationship with Jesus.

    Excellent series

    We love this series, and this book was brilliant for helping us think through anger while also telling a good story. The community of animal characters are given very real human characteristics, and struggle with the sins that pepper our everyday lives. The stories are written well, avoiding trite allegorising, and have prompted good conversations with our 5 and 7 year old boys.
