Gus Loses His Grip: When You Want Something Too Much (Gustave perd le contrôle - Quand tu as trop envie de quelque chose)
This beautifully illustrated book invites children to remember that Jesus can help us when we are tempted. Gustave, the raccoon who loves anything sweet, finds out what happens when you crave something too much. After catching her stealing candy, her daddy reminds her that temptation may be too much for us, but not for Jesus. Gustave thus learns that he can count on the One who will always be his support.
Irrepressible desires concern us all. In this book, parents will also find great advice to help their children who have to fight against cravings that can take them too far.
