Kids and teachers both like this curriculm we have the red and blue books as well and enjoy them all. We wish there were scripture verses included with the lesson so we would not have to search for one but overall the lessons are easy for kids to understand. We have age 5 - grade 5 in our group and they all enjoy it.
I AM IN CHARGE OF OUR SUNDAY CHILDREN'S CHURCH AND I HAVE FOUND THAT THIS PRODUCT WORKS GREAT FOR MY TEACHERS AND CHILDREN. THE LESSONS ARE EASY FOR THE KIDS TO UNDERSTAND AND THE TEACHER TO TEACH. EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED. WE LOVE THIS PRODUCT.
Overall I was very disappointed with the whole program, we are using it but I find I have to supplement it a lot, and go internet searching to compliment the story, with other games and crafts, rather then the ones accompanying the program. Not a good deal for the amount of money it cost.
I have used this set in the past, a different series, with great success! I use this set to teach Children's Church to our 4 yr olds - 2nd graders each week. Each lesson has easy to follow instructions, a fun craft, and other ideas to complete the time; I like that I can modify the lesson to fit my time allotment. I also like that each lesson has all I want to teach the children in preparation for "big church" activities: singing, prayer, and a lesson from the Bible. I have found only one negative observation with this series; there is not a correlated Bible scripture for each lesson. Before purchasing the second series, I searched online and stores for different options, but I found no other that could compare for the price or great materials. I would definitely recommend this set/series to anyone searching for teaching materials with limited time to prepare a lesson that keeps the kiddos focused and engaged.
