Have you ever seen a stove sitting on a bookshelf, or a body having a fight with itself...?
Busy Body provides a unique way of ministering to Christian youths. It introduces youngreaders to Christian values and principles and teaches them the significance of these standards and beliefs.
The story is written with a Dr. Seuss-ian kind of flavor grabs the attention of young readers as theybegin a whimsical journey that starts out as fiction and seamlessly segues into a nonfiction teachable moment, using humor, fun, adventure and anthropomorphism.
The Book: (The Bible) Based on 1 Corinthians 12:27
Just as your body is one body with many parts working together, and each part has a special function, so it is with God's Church Body. We are many parts of God's Church Body working together and serving each other.
Busy Body is an important teaching tool with a valuable takeaway for young minds. It visually expresses our differences in race, ethnicity, and cultural background whileillustrating howour diversity is our strength; we don't all look alike, however, we are all important, and we each have a purpose or part to carry out in fulfilling God's perfect plan.
More importantly for Christians, Busy Body's message serves to help youths understand the purpose of the Church which is the Body of Christ. It exemplifies the importance of teaching our youths about the Love of Jesus Christ, the Unity of His Body, and following His example of how the Body of Christ, His Church Body, is to love and serve one another.
