Oh my goodness!! Wow! Have you ever wondered how to help your children transition from the little kids/toddlers version of the Bible to the bigger/teenagers Bible? Well, this book is the answer!
I am so impressed with all the information contained in this book. Not only is it broken into small sections for easy navigation, but it is also written in a way that kids will have no problem reading! I would recommend this book for kids at least 8 years and older. If you're a Sunday School teacher, you may be able to read it to 1st and 2nd graders to help give more insight into one of your lessons, but they probably won't be able to read it and understand all of it on their own.
The who, what, when, where are explained for each book of the Bible. So, very interesting! I even learned something new! There are many colorful illustrations throughout the book that kids will enjoy looking at. What I found most interesting though was the way the author introduced the last book of the Bible, Revelation. She explained why some consider it scary, why some think it already happened, and why some think it is still to come. Loved that!
But, that's not all! At the end of the book, the author also explains the "how to" part. She explains how to apply it to your life, how to study it, and the importance of memorizing your favorite verses. And then she also has a reading plan and some time-lines. Very impressive! I am so excited about this book, I've added it to my wishlist for the kids for Christmas. What a great way to help my children grow in understanding God's never ending love for us!
