Bad Luck Penny

by Seaton,Lisa J. (Author)
Unlimited loans, One at a time

I knew I had to hurry and get away from her quick,

So I would not be the victim of her latest trick.

And just when I thought things could not get any worse,

She scowled at me as she reached into her purse.

Childhood should be a time of joy when our precious gifts are protected and celebrated for being unique. It should be a time of innocence when play is the most tedious task at hand. Unfortunately, many children never experience the pleasure of a carefree childhood but are subjected to traumatic events and ridiculed because of their differences. Ashamed and hopeless, they are unable to make sense of the discrepancies they see in the world around them versus their lived experiences. They look to us for answers, yet we often fail to provide the unconditional acceptance they crave.

The playful rhyme and comical illustrations of Bad Luck Penny brings laughter and instills a sense of confidence in young readers who have experienced the pain of rejection. They receive assurance of God’s love and acceptance while learning a valuable lesson about the role they play in fulfilling their destiny.

Additionally, parents and teachers can use the story as a springboard to introduce Christian principles and biblical truths. Clinicians will also find this book useful as a therapeutic resource to address adverse childhood experiences.
