Family Christian sent me the first book from the Tales of Little Overhill series titled The Good Rat. The Good Rat retells the story of the parable of The Good Samaritan.
I was really impressed with this book. It is a nice hardcover book with beautiful illustrations on each page. It is a short book, 32 pages, that can be read in one setting. My 3 1/2 year old and 9 year old enjoyed listening to the story. In this story, Simon the shrew, set out walking to the village. Along the way, a gang of weasels beat him and took his things. Two church mice came along the path and saw Simon, but they were late for their game. Nest, Matilda the hedgehog came down the path. She also saw Simon, but she was scared and ran away. Finally, a rat came walking down the path. Did he stop? Was he going to help Simon?
Both of my girls listened intently to find out what was going to happen to Simon. Was anyone going to stop and help him? Who would it be? We enjoyed reading the book and looking at the great illustrations.
