Soccer - Tails From The Pantry by Patsy Clairmont

Recommended - Highly Recommended

Each Tails From The Pantry book highlights a "Little Life Lesson from Mom and Dad." In this story we meet a mouse family and learn not to believe everything we are told.

Soccer MacKenzie, a young mouse who lives in the pantry, learns there is a new cat at home, and he is wild.  Soccer hears the news from Tipsy the spider, who heard it from the ladybug who heard it from the housefly...

Later Soccer gets to meet the new cat and learns she isn't wild at all, but a baby kitten who wants to be his friend.

Positives: The story is very imaginative and will entertain young children. They will giggle at Soccer's antics and learn a valuable lesson as well.

Negatives: None

Talking Points: The book of Proverbs talks a lot about our words and our listening. Look at some of these verses and talk with your child about who and what they listen to (Prov. 18:8, 26:22). This may also be a chance to talk about God and His Word being the source of all truth (Ps. 119:160, John 17:17).
