Reviews - What do customers think about Parables for Kids?
An excellent and easily understood tool to teach kids! Mar 11, 2003
This attractive, hardback book "Parables for Kids" is excellently written and illustrated. Not only the Biblical story, but a contemporary one is presented to allow the child to put today's events and places and things together with the concept the Bible teaches. I used this book to teach a couple of parables to a large group and it was well received. I am eager to buy additional books by these same 2 authors, Danae and James Dobson, daughter and dad.
Good for kids 1st grade - 5th grade Aug 29, 2002
I am in charge of our church's children's church ages 4- 7. When I ordered this book the description said ages 4-8. When I got the book, it had long pages of text. I did not think that 4 0r even 5 year olds would sit still long enough to hear the story. I love the concept of the book, but I prefer shorter pages of text with illustrations that I can show the kids; or I think I will lose their attention. I do recommend it for ages 6 and up.
An excellent resource to teach difficult concepts to kids Jan 5, 2002
I particularly enjoyed using the story of the Good Samaritan. The authors do an excellent job of telling a modern story followed by the Biblical story then tie the two together. The Good Samaritan brings home the meaning so very well for kids. I would recommend this book or cassette for Children's Church or for home Bible study. It would also be good for young homeschoolers.
Can't Stop Listening Oct 15, 2000
We borrowed these audio cassettes from the library. My daughter listened to them over and over. Friends of hers who happened to ride in the car with us listened too, and they didn't want to get out when we arrived at our destination because they needed to finish the story they were on. Very powerful current day illustrations that all kids relate to. They make the parables of Jesus come alive. It's a shame the title isn't more catchy because some kids will miss listening because of it.
