'Greater Than The Geese' is a Christian children’s book filled with lessons about dominion, faith and courage, taught through the adventure of Curtis and his dog Patches.

Beverly Richards initially thought of writing for women but instead, she was led by God to write for children and for children at heart. “Greater Than The Geese” (published by Xlibris) is a Christian children’s book filled with lessons about dominion, faith and courage, taught through the adventure of Curtis and his dog Patches.

Curtis, a curious little boy, is about to have a day unlike any other. Today, with his dog Patches by his side, Curtis will meet a flock of geese that will test his courage. The geese are no match for what Curtis and Patches know. Curtis is not running away. As children read on, they will discover where Curtis finds his strength.

“Greater Than The Geese” is appealing for a number of reasons: for adults, the book makes it easy to teach about dominion, having faith and then using that faith to be courageous; for children, the book is full of action and beautiful illustrations to hold their interest; and they are learning valuable lessons without being forced.

“Christian parents are looking for creative ways to teach their children about Christian values,” Richards says on her book’s societal impact. “This book provides that opportunity and it creates a dialog about other Christian lessons and values, i.e. like having dominion is not just about having power, but that dominion is a gift to us from God.”
