10.0 out of 10.0 Stars "A wonderfully fun way to teach children to focus on “good” thoughts and behavior, while teaching them God’s Word and principles" ~ CBM Christian Book Reviews
Stinky Thoughts: You Are What You Think *by Mary Ross gives children a cute, simple and fun book about training your mind to think good thoughts, aiding in the development of positive thinking patterns. Comparing negative thoughts to stinky garbage, this colorful illustrated book gives children positive attitudes and thought patterns that coincide with godly behavior (i.e. the fruits of the Spirit). The author delicately explains with the use of a cute little tweedy bird and a young girl that your thoughts matter and that you become what you think. The thoughts you think become your actions, so thinking the “right” thoughts and focusing your mind on being kind, loving, unselfish and giving is the best way to be. When we think selfish, mean or greedy thoughts, this doesn’t give us joy. Children will love the bright illustrations and the ease with which the author tells them that “bad thoughts” are stinky, like garbage. Encouraging, uplifting and entertaining children will be delighted to know that having bad thoughts is not something they should let stay in their mind. The author has also included at the end of the book a few pages of scripture to imprint God’s Word on little minds and hearts. This is a wonderful way to feed your child God’s Word, giving them truth in their inner being that will last them a lifetime. As the author states, doing this is one of the best things parents can do for their children. Perfect as a gift or for your own child, this book comes highly recommended as a must-read for any young child (ages 5-12).
