Dudley does not immediately pick up the idea about what he is supposed to be seeing as miracles. His mom explains that God created everything around us in nature and these things are miracles. Flowers, butterflies, the sky, and even the ground are all miracles. Dudley then begins to see more things around him and even the stars in the night sky are a miracle. Dudley's mom also tells him a secret at the end of the day about a special miracle. Young readers will want to find out what this special miracle is.
Mike Motz contributed his talent as an illustrator to tell Dudley's story about the discovery of miracles. Each page is colorful and young readers will be engaged in finding the miracles in nature as they turn the pages. Miracles All Around Us is recommended for ages 3-6 and has an ISBN of 9781492926917.

Bring Dudley and His Mom Into Your Sunday School or Christian Classroom
Story time in Sunday School is a fun reading experience for young children. Picture books are essential for teaching God's truths to young children. Young children relate readily to engaging characters in a picture book and reading together can spark class discussions about Christian concepts.
Candy Myers' Miracles All Around Us is a fun read aloud for young children to teach the concept that God's miracles are definitely all around us and all that is necessary is for us to look around.
*Read Miracles All Around Us in your story time session. Call attention to Dudley and his mom as the characters that will tell the story. Take a class poll of the number of children who have dogs. Do they think their dog is a miracle?
*Call attention to all of the things that Dudley sees as he takes a walk with his mom. What are these miracles?
*Invite children to take a class walk and find the miracles that they see.
*Prepare an art center with large drawing paper, crayons, markers, and other materials for children to create a picture of miracles that they see all around them.
*Call attention to the miracle that Dudley's mom tells him as being the greatest miracle of all. Dudley's mom believes that prayer is the greatest miracle of all. Engage children in a prayer about the miracles that they see in their world. This can easily be taught as a "thank you" prayer to teach young children to be thankful for God's miracles in their world.
*Create a class writing activity and allow children to dictate a prayer to thank God for their favorite miracle.
