Retailers & Resources

“It had been many years since the release of a nondenominational hymnal especially for children. Hendrickson Worship has changed that with the launch of The Kids Hymnal products. Bright illustrations and an affirmation and application lesson for each song make the new songbook the perfect way for churches and parents to share their musical heritage with elementary school-aged kids.

“ ‘There’s a need to reintroduce children to the theology and music of the founders,” says “Kids Hymnal” creator and prolific children’s author Stephen Elkins. “The great hymns of Wesley sing of the glory of God and use some pretty deep words. That’s OK, isn’t it? It gives parents an opportunity to speak of grace in simpler terms and explain the meaning. Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me,’ so His message must certainly be applicable to them. So much of today’s Christian music is very repetitive and lacks the spiritual depth found in the hymns.'

“Elkins also points out that music is an excellent educational tool. ‘That’s what hymns are: educational/praise songs that teach us about the Lord,’ he says. But isn’t the frequently archaic and stylized language of many hymns too difficult for young children? For example, modern kids—most of whom haven’t been on a farm—report misunderstanding ‘bringing in the sheaves’ as ‘bringing in the sheep,’ ‘…the sheets,’ or even ‘bringing in the cheese.’ In addition, the hymn is correlating physical farm produce with spiritual fruit—not a simple concept. Elkins argues that The Kids Hymnal addresses just this problem. ‘I would call [hymns’ language] traditional language, which gives [kids] a little taste of history’ Elkins says. ‘And that’s how I like to frame it with kids: Listen to the language of our great-great grandfathers. Some might argue that the content is over the head of a 4-9 year old,’ he adds. ‘To safeguard against that happening, we included an ‘About This Hymn’ section on every hymn page. Kids can read an explanation of difficult terms or concepts.” For example, Elkins says, ‘in the song ‘Come Christians, Join to Sing,’ a child comes to know what it means to be a Christian. The affirmation in this hymn is ‘I will sing to the Lord,’ for I am a Christian. We apply the verses to the child’s life and then the child speaks or affirms the principle’ Besides applications lessons, affirmations, and illustrations by Tim O’Connor, The Kids Hymnal features melody lines, lyrics, and guitar chords; stories behind the hymns; and indexes by title and topic. Correlating products include a piano accompaniment book; a split-track, three-CD set; and a sing-along DVD with the words printed on the screen. Each product includes all 80 featured songs and hymns, grouped by categories:

• Hymns

• Sunday-school classis such as “Deep and Wide”

• Scripture songs to help kids memorize God’s Word

• Songs based on Jesus’ teachings

• Seasonal songs, including Christmas carols and Easter melodies

“Unison arrangements are in easy-to-sing keys, for use in children’s choirs in churches and schools, or for simple family fun at home. The CDs and DVD feature the popular Wonder Kids Choir (100 All-Time Favorite Bible Songs, The Jabez Prayer Song Collection). The hymnal released in October 2007, the correlating products in August 2007, and all except the accompaniment book carry a $9.97 introductory-value retail price. ‘The kids love these songs,’ Elkins says. ‘They have a modern sound without all the heavy drums and guitars—no heavy rock, no rap. Don’t get me wrong, the rhythms are fun and engaging, but they still meet the ‘conservative’ standard. [Kids] like learning these ‘big church’ songs in an easy way,’ he says. ‘They sound great when they sing, and it’s really good for their confidence…. Kids love singing out of their own hymn book, too. Most are accustomed to the words being up on a screen without the notes. How excited they are when they begin to understand how to read the music notes, even if it’s in a general way.’” — CBD Retailers & Resources

    We have found the song books to be good for our kids. We have ordered a total of 12 books, 1 piano book, and the 3 CD's for our kids. Plus one of our members bought the DVD for the kids. We highly recommend these for children's chapels and for individual classes. We ordered these for our

    new children's chapel that we re-opened after 15 years of no children's chapel.

    I bought this for my son and I to learn the hymns since I didn't grow up with them. There are so many in the small book and they list multiple verses to sing. Colorful, clean pages with a little devotional on the side. Great for family worship!

    This was for a piano young student and her mother who is a SS teacher in my church. It would have been much better/easier if the book had the spiral binding so it would stay open while on the piano. I had gotten one of those years back, but didn't see one available now.

    This hymnal has many wonderful traditional hymns, plus some traditional choruses, modern choruses that I had never heard before (it's always fun to learn new songs), Christmas songs, and Christian American patriotic songs. The illustrations are nice, but not quite every page has an illustration like in another children's hymnal that I've seen. The illustrations, I might add, are very nice. Following most of the songs is a "The Reason We Sing" section followed by a "My Affirmation" section. These two sections are like a mini-devotional. But what is missing (in my opinion) are Scripture verses.

    The mix of types of songs is what I found most appealing. Children have an opportunity to learn the older hymns and fun songs. I found this for our church and ordered a copy to use with my grandchildren.
