New Toes for Tia by Larry DinkinsTitle: New Toes for Tia
Author: Larry Dinkins
Major Themes: Thailand, Missionaries
Synopsis: After 4-year-old Tia’s toes are badly burned, she cannot walk normally.

I love New Toes for Tia! I read it to my 5-year-old son last week, and he loved it, too. It is a delightful story for young children about the love that God’s people show for other people.

Tia stepped into a hot fire accidentally when she was just four years old, and her toes were badly burned. After that, she was never able walk like the other children in her village in Thailand. Then one day, a missionary came to the village. He told stories about how Jesus healed people when he was on earth. Tia wondered if God could heal people now. Could He heal her?

Tia’s father listened to the missionary’s teaching, and eventually he became a believer in Jesus. Having a new father was exciting enough, but then Tia’s father told her that the missionary had told him about a hospital which might be able to fix Tia’s toes! Will the operation work? Will Tia be able to walk normally again?

No warnings!
