Amos is targeted by the town bully because he is so small. When word reaches Amos of his friend David's battle with Goliath, he thinks back to what David told him about putting his faith in God's protection. Perhaps the same God can help Amos face his bully too.
Amos Faces His Bully
Product DetailsSometimes you just need to read a special book with the right perspective for encouraging grandsons. This book did just that for me. It is a great summer read about facing smalltown bullies, sitting in the dirt, boys pushing back and forth, fighting bears and lions, and so much more. Our 10 year-old-grandson easily related to the awesome subject of bravery and trusting the Lord for His protection in all that you face. Our 5-year-old grandson loved the fact that Amos, the main character, stands up to his bullies but there were too many words in the storyline and parts were a bit confusing for him. Both kids felt the style of the illustrations were too cartoonish for a real life-like everyday struggle for boys. I have to say that my favorite line in the book is, "If Amos had God on his side, why did he need to be afraid of the bigger boys?" I loved hearing my boys sigh with relief and mentioning to me that God is on our side. They get it! And so will you. It doesn't disappoint.
4/4 stars! Recommend for home and Sunday School library!
