The Christmas Story for Children by Max Lucado, Randy Frazee, & Karen Davis Hill {Review}

The Christmas Story for Children

  I love this. Taking out the special pages from The Story for Children and enlarging and elaborating on them for the Christmas season. As long as I can remember, to me, Max Lucado has been a trusted name and source in Bible study and devotional resources. When I stumbled across The Story for Little Ones I could not be more pleased. Little Ones encompasses ages 2-5 while The Story for Children: A Storybook Bible I believe is meant for ages 4-8. This is part of a large campaign that includes all ages. The Story for Children (early elementary), The Story for Kids (later elementary), The Story Teen Edition, God’s Story Youth Edition, and then the adult books in The Story, God’s Story Your Story, and a few more. I think from what I have seen (my copy of The Story for Little Ones, God’s Story Your Story (reviewed) and a. . .

The Creation Story for Children from Master Books {Review}

The Creation Story for Children {Review} from @CherryBlossomMJ

Purchase Answers in Genesis’ most popular resources at great sale prices— shop today! I’ve found myself a fan of Master Books and Memoria Press’ new Simply Classical Curriculum. This book has made it on the list of required books for the Simply Classical Level 1 Curriculum a Special-Needs equivalent for 1st Grade. The Simply Classical program is where I found this book, but it is a great one that all children on any spectrum can enjoy. The Creation Story for Children is really three books in one. The first 15 pages are The Story of Creation for Children, pp. 26-31 are pages with details about God’s Amazing Creatures with details and talking points for discussion with children, and pp. 32-39 are pages that divide up the 139 Psalm with illustrations. While this is a new recommendation to me, this is not actually a new book. Originally copyright 2000 and more. . .

Thursday is a proof and correction date with recitation added and Friday ends with time to illustrate and review. The Golden Children’s Bible was chosen because of its slightly simplified, but poetically appealing, King James text, along with its beautiful and age-appropriate illustrations. This is important because we believe students should learn to revere the Bible as a sacred book, distinct from modern adventure stories with cartoon heroes. The Golden Children’s Bible was. . .
