The Pirate and the Firefly by Tara McClary Reeeves & Amanda Jenkins

About “The Pirate and the Firefly”
Oliver loves pretending to be a pirate, but learns that blindly following others doesn't leave him with a good feeling inside.

In this Scripture adventure, kids join Oliver as he rights the wrongs done by his so-called Pirate friends. Through it all, Captain Oliver learns that following God's way is the true way to wisdom!

Based on Scripture from Psalm 1, "The Pirate and the Firefly" aims to address the felt needs of children ages 4 to 8 including courage, confidence, friendship and more with biblical truths about God.

This is a beautiful book that teaches character values in more ways than one.  I love that it uses scripture to address doing what it right vs making wrong choices.    Teaching children to stand up for what is right.  This book will definitely find it's way into my classroom library this fall.   The book even has a page for parents to connect and use as a springboard with questions. The illustrations are  colorful and eye appealing as well. 
You can take a look inside this lovely book here.
