A Servant Like Jesus: Book Review

It's the first day of school at the Fish-Care Cove School for Charlie the Crab. Despite the colorful classroom and fun toys to play with, Charlie hides behind the sink, too shy to interact with his classmates. Finally, his teacher, Miss Stella Starfish, coaxes him out by asking him to be her helper. 

Charlie soon gains confidence in his unique, God-given abilities like big eyes that can see all around the classroom, claws that can carry lots of things, and four fast legs. Charlie learns there's joy when he serves others, just like Jesus did. 

This is the fourth book in author, Lee Ann Mancini's award-winning children's series, Adventures of the Sea Kids. Like its three predecessors, it hits home with realistic children's issues such as first-day-of-school anxiety, sharing, and conflict management. Not only does Mancini address these issues, she teaches the reader how to take all these problems and fears to Jesus, through prayer. 

I recommend A Servant Like Jesus for any child's first day of school. 

I give this book *****'s.
