Sometimes it's hard being a new kid at school or in the neighborhood because relationships have already been formed and this makes you feel like an outsider. When Cooper and his family moved across the street from a tree house, the neighborhood kids had a decision to make. With a new kid on the block, they began thinking about whether or not to accept him as one of their own. In Oak Street Treehouse: The Day The New Kid Moved In by Dick Daniels with illustrations by Mollie Bozarth, children will learn about friendships, change, acceptance, and God's love. When people meet someone new, they tend not to accept them because they allow their judgment of others to surface. Once given a chance, strangers are not always what they appeared to be and could be a wonderful asset in our lives.
I enjoyed reading Oak Street Treehouse because of the various lessons and elements that were present. This book offers several great tools for helping children to begin a conversation about their biases among themselves with their parents or friends. These include making an unfounded judgment, understanding the world around them, the importance of inclusivity, and introducing them to God's principles while seeing through His eyes. I enjoyed the way Dick Daniels added the element of having each club member pose a question to God, which helps to illustrate divine guidance and ways to establish spiritual relationships. Run and get your copy today. Enjoy!
