Gini4 Stars Out Of 5Wow!June 29, 2017GiniQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This is one of several books that attempts to explain the gospel to children. Its not as easy as it sounds since us grownups have made it pretty complicated, in some respects. I had heard someone say that they found it quite difficult to explain things especially around Easter time, so I decided to give this book a look.
It is meant to be read to children. Thats a plus right there. It isnt something you place in front of them and walk away. That meets the first criterium in my opinion. Parental involvement. The size of the book works for sharing it with someone. Nice big pages, colorful illustrations done by Annabel Tempest, and print that fills the space left for it nicely.
The story is told in rhyme and mostly simple terms. There are some words like grace or Savior that might trip up a young child, but with mom or dad there to help her understand I think itll be OK. The child is encouraged to participate whenever the word Wow!, Uh-oh, Yes!, or Ahh appears. Theres the four words from the title. Good choices, I think.
This seems like an entry point book for helping your child understand the gospel. And fear not, if the dust cover gets torn, the cover itself also has the art work. Nice touch, I think.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review.

This is not a book to use with children raised in church who know the gospel forwards and backwards, but if your church has a bus ministry, or a good news club or other ministry that reaches out to unchurched neighborhood children then this book would be awesome for them. It is worded in such a way that the person reading the story can expand on it if the listener asks questions, so they might get the whole truth instead of a watered down version of it.
Definitely unique and and timely ministry resource with more people unchurched than ever before.

I love checking out new children's books, and I was excited to have the chance to read and review Wow! The Good News in Four Words.
This book shares the gospel message with children through the emphasizing of four words: Wow! Uh-oh! Yes! Ahh.
The pictures in this book are very colorful and bold. They are not the cutest, but they are fun.
What I liked:
This book truly shares the gospel message, which I think is really cool. It could be a good gift for kids because of that.
This book is colorful and fun.
I like that there are references shared in the back of the book - "for further study".
What I didn't like:
I like that this shares the gospel message, but I don't like that it kind of just drags things out. It goes on for longer than I felt it should.
Overall, I think that this is a unique type of book.
I give Wow! The Good News in Four Words 4 out of 5 stars.
