Shawn and His Amazing Shrinking Sister: A Book about Teasing (Teaching Children to Use Their Words Wisely)
Shawn and His Amazing Shrinking Sister gives parents guidance for ending teasing while teaching children how to build one another up.
Shawn and Annie are excited for a family camping trip, but trouble awaits! Mom and Dad tease each other, and soon Shawn follows their lead and starts teasing Annie. But every time Shawn is unkind and teases her, Annie gets a little bit smaller. As Annie shrinks, the whole family learns how teasing can be hurtful to others and how it dishonors God.
All parents would like their children to tease less and be kinder to one another, but may not notice they do the same thing. Best-selling author Ginger Hubbard and Al Roland show families the way forward with a vivid picture of how teasing “shrinks” others and points them to Jesus for forgiveness. A parent resource page presents a biblical framework and practical suggestions to help children understand why they tease others and how to communicate in a more loving way.
Families will learn to build each other up instead of tearing down.
Bright, fun illustrations and engaging story for children ages 4-7.
