Free sample

This full color children’s book completely in rhyme, appropriate for children from 5-10 years old, is about Sophia – a little girl that is constantly soaking wet. She lives in the city of Drown where the rain never stops falling. There is nothing in the town that can stop the rain, and there is no place she can go to get dry. No matter what she tries, she is always soaking wet. Then one day she meets a man standing on the street corner on a wooden box with a special gift just for her. He shows her why the rain keeps falling from the sky, and how to get out of the rain to get dry.


This book is a lesson to help children understand the bible’s teaching of justification, and the work that Jesus Christ accomplished on behalf of his people (in theology this is called Christ’s imputation to believers). Most adults have a difficult time understanding justification and imputation. In this easy to understand story, both parents and children alike will see what it means to be justified by God through the blood of Jesus Christ through the eyes of a little girl. “Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” (Rom. 5:9). “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7).


It also has listed at the end of the story a study aid to help parents teach their children the major themes found in the book.
