Cam loves living life to the fullest, running about, playing, jumping, shouting, and generally making a lot of noise. He finds it puzzling and wonders why everyone attempts to restrain his enthusiasm and make him go more slowly and quietly. But he finds it most difficult to comprehend how Mr. Flopsy can remain so calm, still and silent.

Mr. Flopsy, Cam’s pet bunny rabbit, teaches him a lot about how to be more quiet and still. The story illustrates both in words and pictures how to interpret the Bible verse Be still and Know that I am God from Psalm 46:10.

The reader and listener will be quickly drawn right into the story in this adorable, endearing tale written by Christie Eley and illustrated by Aries Cheung. With colored pages and cute, colorful illustrations, the story instantly comes alive.

My 2-year-old granddaughter was really curious about Cam and fell in love with Mr. Flopsy (she now wants a bunny!). Because she is very much like Cam where movement is concerned, she could grasp the idea, but Cam’s volume confused and perplexed her because “loud noises hurt my ears!”

Additional advice, suggestions and Bible passages to teach children to be still, peaceful, quiet, unafraid and less anxious are included at the book’s conclusion. The author also furnishes numerous helpful activities and websites.
