Life Lessons Without The Fleas is a charming Christian faith-based book by Leonard Scott Long. It follows the lives of his pets and what he has learned from them over the years. The pets range from cats, dogs, ducks, and even cows, with cute names such as Cowbell, Marshmallow, Heidi, and Ispep.
Their quirks are heart-warming and their personalities are quite lovable. After a while, you may even forget that they are animals. The author has a way of talking about them that brings you in and makes the narrative more personal. Moreover, he has an uncanny way of drawing faith-based messages from their everyday lives.
He also goes to great lengths to simplify biblical messages through the use of whimsical acronyms. Ultimately, there is a beautiful simplicity to the narrative. The animations are a nice touch as well, giving a cute spin to beloved characters.
Apart from a belief in God, some of the themes expressed in this book include love, patience, and the dangers of living in fear. These themes are put across not only through the specific stories shared but also through the scriptures tied to them and the explanations are given by the author. Ultimately, the author does a good job at linking the life of his pets to biblical scripture and then to everyday life.
Whether you simply want to grow in your Christian faith or want to introduce your children to it in a simple yet significant way, then this book is for you. In many ways, this book gives you a wide view of what it means to be a Christian, although oversimplified especially about matters of sin, repentance and the concept of “bad people”. As such, this book would be better suited to very young children.
Life Lessons, Without the Fleas is an creative Christian children’s picture book that does a fantastic job of educating young readers on various aspects of faith. The cute illustrations will keep readers entertained throughout this enlightening children’s book.
