Growing up is a lot of work. There’s so much to learn. Little Jeffery has to learn about manners, like saying please and thank you and helping others when the need arises. He has to learn to be excited about going to church and learning about God, as he is excited about going to a baseball game. He has some pretty challenging questions swirling around his head, like where is heaven and why doesn’t everyone believe in God. These are difficult questions for adults to comprehend, let alone explain to a child. But Jeffery listens carefully to everything his parents and other adults teach him and he’s learning how to be a good gentleman and a good Christian.
Little Jeffery by Jeff Coulter is a collection of short stories about a young boy named Little Jeffery. The stories deal with issues and questions most children have from time to time. The stories are told with compassion and attention to detail, explaining sometimes complex Christian values in a simple way that a young child will understand. Little Jeffery is encouraged to ask questions and, when he receives the answers, he learns how to act on what he’s learned, like giving a young boy in the mall, someone he doesn’t even know, the shiny new truck his father just bought for him. Why? Because he overheard the boy asking his mommy for a new truck, too, and the mommy responded that they couldn’t afford it. Giving to others, helping others, thinking of others before oneself are all valuable lessons of faith for children to learn and foster.
