Reviews - What do customers think about Moon Rocks and Dinosaur Bones (Sanders, Nancy I. Parables in Action, 4.)?

Sends the wrong message  Jun 20, 2007
Sadly, I'm going to have to agree with the previous review. After buying Comet Campout and Dog Paws and Sandy Claws for my church's library, (both from this same series, and both good)I was disappointed with this one.
When the kids need money for Bubbles to be able to go to the moon, they pray about it and decide to sell Mario's dinosaur bones to the museum. Mario had asked them to keep the bones safe while he was gone, but after they pray they decide that Mario would want them to sell the bones. Not only is this a poor illustration of the parable in the Bible, it's sending the message, "it's ok to take things that don't belong to you as long as you don't think the owner would mind." Not a good message to be sending to children.
This book teaches that theft is OK  Jun 6, 2007
Do not buy this book for your kids (unless you want to use it as an object lesson in how to misunderstand Jesus' parable). Here's a brief summary: Mario finds some dinosaur bones. He has to leave temporarily, so he gives the bones to his friends to keep them safe while he is gone. His friends promise to keep them safe. When his friends find out that they don't have the money for Bubbles to go to the moon, they pray about it, and decide to sell Mario's bones and use the money for Bubbles' moon trip. The authors call this a "wise" decision (on page 46). This is not "wisdom", it is theft. The fact that Mario is written as being happy with the decision does not change the immorality (unless you think that the ends justify the means). If the authors want to promote Christian values, they should withdraw this story from publication and rewrite it.
