Endorsements

"When our children were little, we read to them constantly—and had these books been available, they would have been among the favorites. With the simplicity and engaging charm of the Peter Rabbit stories, yet with the quiet grace of Christian insight, these stories stamp themselves on young minds. Text and pictures support each other tellingly. These books are destined to become favorites for young families."
D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical School, Deerfield, IL; cofounder of The Gospel Coalition

"So many Christian parents are looking for engaging, age-appropriate ways to help their young children learn what the Bible teaches about everyday struggles and challenging situations. This new book series edited by David Powlison and Ed Welch fits the bill! In Good News for Little Hearts, kids will be enthralled by relatable characters, charming illustrations, and gospel-centered lessons. These volumes would make a valuable addition to any family’s library."
Jim Daly, President, Focus on the Family

"Failure, anger, anxiety—for too long we have thought that addressing these typical life experiences is only for the 'teenage' or 'adult' years. How refreshing—and wise—to see them being addressed from a gospel-centered perspective for little children. This series Good News for Little Hearts has the potential to produce godly perspectives and habits from the earliest years of our childrens' lives."
Jonny Gibson, Assistant Professor of Old Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia

"Children easily assign worth to those who are smarter, stronger, taller and faster. They strive to achieve in order to feel acceptance. We know this tendency too. Buster’s Ears Trip Him Up uses this heart inclination to help parents lead their children in rehearsing God’s love in Christ Jesus for sinners and for those who fail. This book’s message to families is rich with gospel hope."
Bud Burk, Pastor for Children and Family Discipleship, Bethlehem Baptist Church Downtown Campus
