Buster's Ears Trip Him Up: When You Fail deals with failure and disappointment. My daughter (age 6) zooms through our house on a regular basis and Buster doing the same was her favorite part in the story. She related well to the characters and remembered the story even a few days after I had read

it to her. It teaches a dual lesson that God loves us no matter what and to turn to him in our failures. These are important lessons for both adults and children and I'm thankful for this book. I can use it to teach my daughters how to address failure in life in a healthy way that encourages spiritual growth.

This is probably my favorite book from the collection because it talks about trying your best. We all want to do everything well and sometimes we get competitive. Buster tries so hard but his silly ears get in his way . I remember how I always wanted to do good at everything so I would not be made

fun of. I wanted kids to like me, but I was so shy and not good at sports.

When Buster doesn’t do well in a race, the book does a great job of reminding children that God love’s us no matter what. We don’t always have to be first as long as we try out best and have a humble heart. Buster learns a valuable lesson about pride. We all have had to deal with that issue and the book is well written in a way that children can understand that God love’s us no matter what.

I received this book from New Growth Press and Read With Audra Blog Program. The review is my own opinion.
