PicPocket Books is one of the largest publishers of storybook apps working with print book publishers to bring quality picture book literature to the digital media. During our recent Children’s Books Week, they put 7 of their apps on sale and the respective print book publishers of these storybooks have also generously sponsored the print version to give away on our website. We have earlier closed the giveaway of 3 print copies of Tractor Mac and now we are starting a new giveaway for the print version of Chrissie’s Shell, Petunia Pepper’s Picture Day and Skid & the Too Tiny Tunnel, all published by Warner Press. To win, enter via the Rafflecopter Widget below. Please note that this giveaway is open to US residents only.
Chrissie is a little turtle with a big problem: she believes her shell is empty. She spends her days comparing herself with other animals in the forest and imagining what it would be like to be them, only to end up disappointed again and again when she finds she cannot transform herself into someone new.
At last, when Chrissie is ready to give up all hope, she has a conversation with God. She begs him to make her into a creature like the wonderful animals she has seen, but God has something better in mind. Will Chrissie finally see herself as God sees her? Will she realize that her shell is not empty after all and that God loves her just the way she is?
Poor Petunia Pepper! Every year, disaster strikes on her school picture day. Puffy hair, pumpkin-style smiles and pink eye help her take pictures that only her family could love. But this year, Petunia promises herself things are going to change. She carefully plans for the perfect picture day. But when she misses the school bus, a series of misadventures begins that leads to yet another picture day fiasco. Will Petunia’s perfect picture be ruined, or will she finally take a picture everybody in her class will love?
Skid, the littlest yellow tractor in the equipment yard, wants to be mighty like the giant bulldozers, tall cranes, and massive diggers who tower over him. But all the big machines tell him he is just a dinky tractor with a putt-putt engine. While they are busy building a new road through the mountain, Skid is left behind to take out the garbage.
When disaster strikes and a tunnel the machines are digging collapses, Pillar, the biggest bulldozer, is left trapped in the rubble. Only a small opening is left at the tunnel entrance and the only one who can fit through the opening is Skid-who is afraid of the dark. Now it’s up to the tiniest tractor to save the day. Can Skid find the courage to do what he was made to do and prove that he doesn’t have to be big to be mighty?
The story also features a “Time Out for God’s Word” page that parents and teachers can use to reinforce the biblical foundation of the story with children. Kids are reminded how much God loves them, just the way they are.
