Religious leaders: like the Song of Songs, Michael and the New Baby does not speak of God directly, but as the author of the Song of Songs believed that love comes from the author of all love, God, so this author believes in God and uplifts virtues in the story always considered valuable to the faith traditions. You too can give copies to your young congregants to reassure them. You can also use Michael and the New Baby as a teaching tool, making the links to your faith tradition in the various story elements.
I can tell all of you leaders that this children's book was field tested before it was published. This story truly calmed our son's fears of becoming the older brother around the time our daughter was born. It was written for this occasion and it worked. It will work for you too. Keep a few copies handy in your office and pass them out when needed. At $12.95 a copy, this useful book will not break your bank either. But for heaven's sake, give this gift to the worried child with the parents present and in public. I don't want you all getting in trouble now! Good luck to you in all your endeavors as leaders!
