FRIENDSHIP WEEK: "Tweaky and Isaac"



· Children care about other children.
· Children love to hear stories of children from the Bible.
· Bible stories teach character and morals.
· Children identify with the hummingbird character
· Tweaky becomes their special friend, too!
You and your child will enjoy reading this singsong version of the Bible story. You will meet Tweaky, the hummingbird, a fictional character who helps make the story of Abraham and Isaac from the Bible to come alive. Together you can sing Tweaky's song and story and then read the story from the Bible in Genesis 22:1-19. The Biblical account is mostly about Abraham and his willingness to obey God, no matter what. This story focuses on Isaac and his feelings about what is happening to him and the stress he is under. When children are in a stressful situation, it helps to have a special friend to talk with and to share experiences with. Tweaky becomes a comforting friend during Isaac's uncertainty. Your child will enjoy Tweaky's story. As they sing his song, Tweaky becomes a comfort to them. What better way to get children interested in reading the Bible, than through getting involves in the Bible story. They will want to read the true account from the Bible and learn about Isaac for themselves. They will want other books about Tweaky. Start a collection for you and your child—you will want the whole set.

Betty Ward Cain has a very endearing style with heartwarming works of art. God will continue to bless her because of her spirit. She is a wonderful artist in my professional opinion. She has a style that makes me crave to turn the page and see more.

I am a collector of children's books. After reading the book, I knew it would be a welcome addition to my collection. I love Tweaky and the way the story is presented. This is a fresh, fun way for children to learn the story of Isaac. Using a hummingbird to tell the story is really neat. Children will love his character. The story is told in a way that will make it easy for children to learn. Tweaky's song is a wonderful way to teach children God's love. It will put a song in their heart that will always be a reminder they are God's children and that they will always be loved.
