Otter B Hopeful is the eighth in a series of children’s books that teach young children basic biblical values. In Hopeful, Otter B and his friends plant a garden and discover a bird’s nest with three eggs in it. When the garden doesn’t grow and the eggs don’t hatch right away, Otter B grows discouraged. Mama reminds Otter B about the story of Easter: Jesus’ friends were sad about His death, but God was doing something amazing. Thanks to the Easter story, Otter B learns what it means to be hopeful.
Each book in the series includes a relevant Bible verse and ends with a fun rhyme that reinforces the lesson:
“When things aren’t working out for you
And joy is hard to see,
Have hope, then pray and trust in God.
It’s how you Otter Be!”
