This beautifully illustrated children’s book invites young readers, ages three through eight, into Zoe Mouse’s world to learn along with her how to bring their fears to Jesus. Zoe learns that God, in his Word, speaks to her fears and reminds her that he is her hiding place in times of trouble. Parents and children will learn together practical, grace-based ways to deal with worry and fear. Edited by David Powlison, Zoe’s Hiding Place ends with a special section that guides parents in teaching their children to respond with faith when fear and worry takes hold in their hearts.
Zoe’s Hiding Place is a part of the Good News for Little Hearts series, bringing gospel help and biblical counsel to families. Based on CCEF’s model of hope and help, each story focuses on an animal family’s real-life issues, encouraging young readers toward a growing relationship with Jesus in the midst of challenging circumstances. Each individual story guides parents toward meaningful conversations with their kids, based on what Scripture has to say about living by faith in everyday life.
By providing biblical help and hope to issues every child faces through vivid illustrations and a story based on a different animal family, even the youngest child will be engaged. Each story offers practical ways to follow Jesus in difficult situations. Instead of a moralistic message, young readers are encouraged to develop a real relationship with the God who cares for them.
Zoe’s Hiding Place, along with all of the Good News for Little Hearts books, will become a lifelong gift for parents and children, as well as teachers, biblical counselors, and anyone hoping to provide concrete, grace-based help for young children. Zoe’s Hiding Place is illustrated by Joe Hox and edited by David Powlison.
