It Will Be Okay:
Trusting God Through Fear and Change
by Lysa TerKeurst
Art by Natalia Moore
When Little Fox met Little Seed in the farmer’s shed, they became best of friends. Little Fox was afraid of dark shadows and scary things and Little Seed didn’t like change, so the two friends felt safe staying inside the shed. But one day the Farmer, who was good and kind, came and took Little Seed outside and planted him in the ground because the Farmer had important plans for him.
At first they are both sad. Little Fox misses his friend and Little Seed doesn’t like being alone in the dark. But then Little Seed sprouts and grows into a tall tree that Little Fox can play near and sleep under. An all the time, the Farmer, who is good and kind, watches over them.
What I Like
This is a sweet, tender story about little ones who are afraid of things and don’t like change. (Every child can identify with this!) It gives comfort and hope and reassurance that good things happen to those who wait and that even though we don’t understand what is happening, we can trust that God has a wonderful plan for us and will always take care of us because He loves us.
This is a precious bedtime story or story for cuddling together to calm a fearful child. A quiet book, it ends with a reminder that just as Little Fox and Little Seed learned to trust the Farmer, we can learn to trust God.
I also really like the art in this picture book. Very quiet and soft yet fun and whimsical. A delightful complement to the story.
