It Will Be Okay by Lysa TerKeurst {Children's Book Review}

Disclosure: I received a sample copy of this book to review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Lincoln, at the age of not-quite-four, is not a fan of change. He dislikes it when day turns to night, when we have to go downstairs to get in the van, or getting in and out of the bathtub. He has a tough time trying new foods, driving home a different way than normal, and a few other things along those lines. In other words...he's three years old, and just figuring out life. I don't have the heart to tell him that these may not be the biggest obstacles he will ever face!

It Will Be Okay is a children's picture book by Lysa TerKeurst. This story allows my little ones to experience the fears and changes that Little Seed and Little Fox encounter, and help them understand that even when things seem scary, God is still in control - and He has a plan for their lives!

The story starts when Little Fox and Little Seed find themselves unlikely friends. Little Seed fears the future when the farmer comes to plant him, but Little Fox stays by his side and watches as he grows up into a magnificent tree.

The book has a lot of narration - it is sometimes a bit too much on each page to keep my toddlers' attention. It is easy enough to tell them the main points of the story, however, even if we skip a few small sections of text. I love the simplicity of the message that points to a simple faith. The illustrations by Natalia Moore are just lovely. There is a section of ten related scriptures to memorize with kids near the front of the book, which is a wonderful resource, as well.

My kids love this book and request to read it over and over! I'm very happy to have it as part of our home library.

Thanks to BookLook Bloggers for my review sample of this book. I received no compensation for posting a review and all views expressed are my own.
