Buck Denver's Hammer of Strength: A Lesson in Loving Others
By Phil Vischer
From VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer, this vibrant and easy-to-read picture book, based on the popular Buck Denver Asks. . . What's in the Bible? video series, helps elementary-age children learn the value of loving well through relevant Bible stories wrapped in real life adventures.
What does it mean to love well?
Buck Denver wants to show everyone how strong he is, so he goes around whacking things with a giant carnival hammer to prove just that. But before he gets himself or anyone else hurt, Buck's friends encourage him to show his strength by loving others. Buck protests, thinking love is just gentle hugs and mushy-gushy kisses, but through love-filled Bible stories, the gang helps Buck realize love is hugs and kisses, but most of all, love is putting others first, which takes the greatest strength of all.
