Biff and Becka's stupendous vacation

Biff and Becka, two rabbit siblings, are looking forward to their annual stupendous vacation with great anticipation! Who wouldn't?! The beach, with family, souvenirs and treats not to be had at home. In preparation to leave, Biff spends the better part of one morning, bragging to a less fortunate friend about all the fun they will have. Feeling slightly superior, he returns home to receive the bad news. His dad has taken a pay cut. There will be no beach this year. And so while the family tries to brainstorm less expensive vacation ideas, Biff puffs and pouts. He and his sister begin to argue and no one is happy. This book is about life throwing you change, and how you deal with it. And how a family uses God to remind themselves how to act in every situation, disappointment and discovery. I did not really enjoy this book. I am not the age group the book was written for, however, I do have kids and read them books, and most times really enjoy what I'm reading. While I believe the author executed her point, showing Godly parenting to children in need of instruction, I just felt it was a little too much. I found myself Speed reading to finish the book, as to be done with it quicker. I do think there are lots of children who would enjoy this book, and as it contains no bad content and I do think it's perfectly suitable for children of the age demographic it's aimed at to be read. It's just not one I'd put in my personal library.
