The Hedge of Thorns
Beautifully illustrated, oversized book edition of John Carrol’s wonderful story. It shows us that the boundaries God puts in our lives are for our protection and good. Portrays one of the premier character lessons children must learn. Note: this volume is full of pictures, and thus contains only a very abridged version of the story.
Based on a true story, here is a gripping account of a young boy who learns the hard way that the choices we make can harm those we love the most. Because he desperately wants to know what is on the other side of a hedge of thorns, he puts his little sister in great danger. From his experience, we learn that God places boundaries in our lives because He loves us.
Character themes in this story: choices, consequences, obedience and boundaries.
