Teaching Children God's Word

I'm always looking for creative ways to teach our children scripture.  We're not good about memorizing it, but we do talk about scripture a lot and we have scriptures in kid-friendly art throughout the house.  I'm also trying to introduce the kiddos to devotions through age-appropriate methods.  I was excited to get the opportunity to review the new "I Can Learn The Bible" by Holly Hawkins Shivers, because it seemed like a great fit for our family.  It's great!

It's a cute book - hardback, inviting graphics, and friendly fonts.  There are 52 studies in the book, one for each week in the year.  Each study starts out with a scripture page, then a short 2.5 page story devotional, then a prayer.  The stories are not Bible stories - they are stories and ideas to help explain the week's scriptures though child-friendly stories and definitions.  The cute pictures also help illustrate the points from the stories.  The forward and the appendix also have tips for memorizing the weekly scriptures.

I think this is a great devotional for elementary age kids, and I highly recommend it to other families.

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
