    Great Workbook that has stood the test of time!
    June 16, 2014

    We moved to an area that had a very small church and my son was the only child in 3rd grade/4th grade in the Sunday School program. So I saw a need to find a way to educate him on my own about the bible. I vaguely remembered when I got a Bible in church in 4th grade (in about 1980?), I also got a workbook with it that you did on your own and learned how to use your Bible.

    I wondered did that workbook still exist, and if it did, would my son like it in this age of electronics and videos? I am glad to now say "Yes" to both of these questions.

    This workbook is called "Finding Your Way Through the Bible" and is geared toward 3rd and 4th graders. It is meant to be done by yourself or one on one with a child and adult. I found that my 3rd grader really enjoyed doing this workbook with me nearby to help with an occasional word or concept question. I think a 4th grader could probably do this alone with little to no help.

    One of the features of this book is that you work through the book and then flip it over and continue working through the pages from the back side. That was one of the things I remembered after all of these years. It is a novelty that I enjoyed and I am happy to report my son enjoyed it also. He had never seen anything like it and that was part of the appeal.

    There are bookmarks to cut out and put in your bible. There are many fill in the blank questions, and then you flip the page and check your answers on the next page. That is a quick way to see whether you got the answers right or not. There is a lot of repetition to the questions, to make sure the child understands what they are learning.

    By the end of the book, your child should know how to use the Table of contents and look up a bible reference by chapter, verse, and then even parts of verses. (For instance, one concept covered is what is the difference between I John and John Chapter 1)? They will also be introduced to Bible dictionaries, indexes, Bible maps, and other study helps.

    The only difference I see in this book than when I was a child is that they have written several versions over the years to go with several specific children's bibles. You don't have to have the exact children's bible that they reference when doing the workbook, but know that some of the answers won't be exactly the same. (For instance, when they ask how many pages are in your bible dictionary, the answer won't be the same unless you have the exact Bible they reference.) Currently available in 2014 is a version that goes with the New Revised Standard Version, The New International Version (almost out of print, I was able to get it from a reseller), and the Common English Version. The Common English version is the latest printing and also now has a similar book available for group study.

    This book is a great way to introduce your 3rd or 4th grader on how to use their bible. The only issue I saw is that there was a printing error in our workbook and one of the bookmarks you cut out, then cuts out a lesson on the back side found near the end of the book. So I made a copy of that page before my son cut it out. I am so glad that this wonderful workbook is still available! Thank you to the original authors Paul B. and Mary Carolyn Maves that have now given generations of kids their first introduction on how to use their Bibles!
