This is a great resource for teaching hymns of the faith to kids as well as to their parents. In today's rock music church services with choruses the hymns that call one to truly worship and reflex on the holiness of God are lost. Choruses and rock music come and go but the great hymns, such as "A Mighty Fortress is our God" remain in the hearts of those who sung them in the years gone by and being in the heart can be brought forth in ones own devotion and prayer life at home.
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.
