Publishers Summary for Pookster and the Practically Perfect Pickle: Pookster is very protective of her pickles. So when her brother Bubs brings his toy soldiers to the table during her pickle eating break, she thinks they are there to swipe her green treat and take it to their leader.

Pookster’s choice of sweet or sour words will mean the difference between keeping her pickle…or losing it to Mommy forces.

“Pookster and her brother are a typical brother-sister duo who pick on each other at times, but other times truly enjoy each others company. These two stories are Christian based and carry a central themes of love and patience throughout. Each story is well written and perfectly colorful to provide little readers something to grab onto.

“Considering that my dear sweet Turkeybird just had his first tooth pulled Pookster and the Unloose Tooth was pretty cute, although he was a little concerned about the growing back part. I just explained to him the difference was that he didn’t have a choice with the pulling of his tooth and in the story, Pookster, had a choice and possibly made a poor one. It was the perfect opportunity to set him aside and teach him a little bit about the choices we make; which is one of the things I love about reading and learning from books.

“In the second story Pookster gets a little out of hand and has to learn a lesson about kindness and using the right words. Again, another great way to teach young children the impact our actions have on others and how we can learn to think before hurting someone’s feelings.

“Each of these books were a breathe of fresh air, honestly. I’m not generally drawn to many Christian titles because I find them to be overly ‘preachy’ and don’t always voice my own beliefs. These stories by Rhonda Funk were wonderful! Perfectly balanced and not to pushy about the overarching Christian theme. Don’t get me wrong, they do include scriptures and a ‘lesson’ at the end of each book, but they are both tastefully done. The illustrations are also fun and enjoyable for children to connect with (as seen below). Overall, I would definitely recommend these to a family looking for Christian based books to help their children understand basic principles to apply in their lives.”

The1stdaughter Recommends: Ages 3 and up. Perfect for families with any basic Christian background looking to help teach their children beginning principles.
