Beautifully presented, tender story
4 stars By Rachel Morgan, Apr 06 2017
This is a lovely story addressing fear in young children. I have found the central message: 'God's still here, God's still good" to be very useful in helping my 3 year old through fear. The hardcover book is also beautifully presented with quaint and emotive pictures that illustrate the message wonderfully.

Beautiful picture book
5 stars By P Morrison, Dec 09 2014
We all have times when we are scared, whether we are children or grown-ups. Madison is a gentle character - scared of dogs and scared of the dark. Her grandparents don't laugh at her fears, or tell her to look within herself for courage, but instead they point her to God. When a storm hits, Madison can't find the dog anywhere ... or Grandma ... until she looks under the bed. In the end it is Madison who reassures Grandma that, 'God's still here. God's still good - even in the dark, with a wet dog, in the middle of a storm.'

This book is beautifully written and is a joy to read again and again. The soft illustrations complement the emotion and characters in the story. The book has a clear message, but this comes out of the story naturally, without a didactic feel. Because it is a good story, children will enjoy it even when they aren't experiencing specific fears.

The message has been well thought through. This book doesn't make false promises that nothing bad will ever happen, but reminds us that God is still there and that he is still good, even when we are scared.

This is a large hardcover book, suitable to read to a group of children or to give as a gift to 3-7 year olds.

Fun with a message
4 stars By Irene Haywood, Dec 09 2014
Once again Penny has taken common childhood feelings and woven an engrossing story which will cause both giggles and comments from young listeners. Grand children love the illustrations and Grandma decides this is worth reading again. A real problem addressed in a sensitive manner and prompting helpful dialogue. This is our kind of book one to keep handy on the bookshelf to be shared again.
Koorong has lots of other books by this author that are well worth sharing with young friends and loved ones.
