Life in the Meadow with Madie Mr. Earl's Missing Eyeglasses is a wonderful Christian-themed children's story that is not only a safe and fun choice for children and parents but one that also provides numerous teaching opportunities through encouraging and fostering discussion around many spiritual truths introduced in the storyline.

Mr. Earl the Squirrel, long-time neighbor in the meadow and one of the meadow's eldest and most beloved friends, takes an unfortunate fall from one of Farmer Ellwood's bird feeders and injures himself. During the confusion surrounding this traumatic event, the extremely nearsighted Mr. Earl loses his eyeglasses. Walking with a cane and unable to see, Mr. Earl cannot search for his missing eyeglasses or gather the various stores of food he has hidden in many locations throughout the meadow.  Madie, a smart little duckling and one of the youngest neighbors in the meadow, thoughtfully gathers community support to help Mr. Earl in his time of need.  Madie and the group of caring neighbors enthusiastically march off to Mr. Earl's but soon realize that doing good can be hard work and isn't quite as easy as just wanting good.  When the group becomes quite discouraged and about ready to give up, wise old Paddy Owl reminds them that Mr. Earl is depending on them and takes this opportunity to teach them a lesson in selflessness, prayer, faith, and perseverance.
