I am using this book as a self-guided refresher on obedience. I am just making it a class that my daughter needs to do every day. She loves to color the pictures and it is nice that the lessons are reinforced with scriptures.
She is 12; as I said, these are good for us as a refresher.
If your child is younger you will need to help out.
Great book for beginning bible thematic study. Simply and attractively put together. Really well researched and really works to get kids familiar with the bible.
One of the things I like SO much is that the workbook does not contain much text of the bible. Citations and scriptural references galore, but the user must take the time to go look it all up. You simply cannot use this without a bible to hand. Since the kids must, in order to complete the lessons, look up lots of verses, the by-product is a thorough literacy of the bible.
I alos like that the book does not preach, but asks the child to go lok things up - and asks leading questions about what the messages are. The answers in the back arre general - and allow the parent to fill in details or specifics according to their beliefs.
We just started using this Bible curriculum as part of our homeschool and the kids love it! We have three children (ages 6, 3, and 10 months) and the older two really enjoy the Bible lessons and have already learned so much in just the first week of lessons. The illustrations are simple enough to captivate my 3-yr-old son's attention to help him sit through the lesson a little quieter and involved enough that they supplement the lesson for my 6-yr-old daughter. The lessons have some "meat" to them, but they aren't overwhelming, even for my 3 year old. This is curriculum that, after only one week of using, I have already recommended to some friends.
