A heartwarming story of a boy who over comes his fears by applying his efforts and following the path of Jesus. Ben has to prove to his family he is responsible enough to take on summer camp and look in the face of everything that scares him.  In the process he proves to be a hero with his handicapped friend Mary who has lost her service dog and also his new found homeless friend Jeremy.

This is a book that will hold the interest of children, but also the reader will be able to identify with Ben’s fears and sibling rivalry. Janet Ann Collins has written a story that teaches compassion, alerts a child to the hardships of others in life. 

The story awakens children to the troubles some people have in their lives, and shows them how God interacts through all of us in ways we never expect.

The characters Ben and Tom develop personal growth both in daily life and in spiritual being.  Great story and inspiring book for kids.   Lots of stars for this one.

This book has been reviewed by Susan Hornbach, author of children's literature
