Do you want to teach your child to be someone who shares love and kindness with others?

Healey E. Ikerd, a Licensed Counselor and lover of Jesus, teaches through the story of The Red Ball that our decisions can help us be the person that God has called us to be.

The story highlights the adventure of a young girl named Renate (Ra-Nah-Tah) who experiences betrayal by a friend and through that betrayal learns about navigating through anger and choosing forgiveness instead. Renate's decision to love her friend proves also to have a profound effect on others around her.

Children will see that what God asks of them is also what helps them to be exactly the kind of person they want to be anyway

Readers will not only relate to Renate's many emotions but also adore her sweet spirit of loving others and loving God.

The Red Ball is an endearing picture book for readers, ages 6 to 10. It was inspired by a story of a real-life Renate who grew up in East Germany in the 1940's.
