Building on the parable of the sower, this 24-page soft cover picture book warns children of the dangers of being choked by the thorns of this world. The story centers around Sarx, a new corn stalk planted in a young boy’s garden. Ignoring the wise advice of a friendly cat, Sarx allows an unassuming weed named Thelma to grow beside him. Although at first Thelma seems harmless, Sarx’s bad decision allows the thorn to grow dangerously large and nearly choke him. Only the intervention of the young gardener and his mother can save Sarx, as well as help children remember not to let their love of God be choked out. Written at an elementary age reading level with full color pictures, the book includes a list of related verses for study or memory work.
