stories that get the kids involved Mar 22, 2006
I purchased this book along with some others for quick and easy ideas for our preschool class during church services. Although this book doesn't have pictures, it does involve the kids during the story. The book contains a craft suggestion, songs and snacks. The craft with each lesson isn't elaborate nor does it require hard to obtain items. Of the four books I purchased for the class, this one is my favorite.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful book Sep 30, 2002
I teach "toddler church" for 2 and 3 year olds. I have tried various kinds of lessons--things found on the internet, lessons from other books I've checked out from the library, etc. I finally found this book and it is absolutely fantastic. It is one of the few "preschool" lesson books that is actually age-appropriate. The activities are simple and fun, and the kids love them.
What makes this book really special is every part of each lesson is focused on the lesson topic. For example, for the story of David and Goliath, you have a song (set to the tune of "The Muffin Man"), the story, told with a wonderful fingerplay, a fun craft (making shields out of grocery bags), a game, and much more. Even the snack holds meaning (make "stone" cookies)!
Don't worry about a lot of preparation time for the lessons. They are simple to prepare for, they don't require expensive materials, and the directions are clear. This book is truly inspired....the authors have been given a blessed gift by God, and I'm so glad they shared it with the rest of us.
Excellent for beginnner teachers Sep 27, 2001
I bought this book about 3 years ago, and I still use it every chance I get. The stories are easy to present, with lots of teacher helps, perfect for the beginner Sunday School teacher. The kids go crazy for the stuff too, they really enjoy it. I use both this book and it's companion, Volume 2. I found the lessons appropriate for ages from 3 up to about 7, which is good if you are teaching a lot of different ages in the same class. My favorite lesson is Creation, which uses white cheese to make moons, apples to make stars, and oranges to represent the sun. The lessons require a little bit of planning but the results are well worth it. Highly recommended.
