Tomas Looks Up and Out helps children learn how God considers us and wants us to look to him for help so that we consider others too.
Tomas Turtle starts his day thinking more about himself than others. Not only is he annoyed that his sister Tori’s cough kept him awake, but he also brags to all of his friends about his successes. It’s not until he gets sick and his friends take care of him that Tomas learns to look up to God and out to others.
