Reviews - What do customers think about Life Before Birth: A Christian Family Book?
Don't listen to the other reviewer putting this book down! Sep 26, 2004
Hi- I am a Mom of three children and I picked up this book at a baby consignment store because I thought it covered a good subject---babies. I was trying to figure out how to explain to my girls (when my son was in my tummy) what a baby looks like and how one is formed. Hence, this book came in and explained a lot of things! I gave it four stars because there was a lot of talk, especially questions that seemed too advanced for younger children to understand. My girls were simply happy to look at the pictures. I also have "A child is born" by Lennart Nilsson which I thought is a great supplement to this book.
As for the other reviewer putting down "religious views" of this book. This reviewer is wrong. We as Christians embrace murderers, thieves, and other sinners because we love them as humans and are aware sin is just ruling their lives and most of them don't know any better or truly understand the Gospel of Christ. The religious extremists (who brag they are Christians) that are mean and pick on abortionists, doctors, thieves, etc. and others are NOT saved themselves! How can you show the love of Christ if you act ill mannered towards others? Our goals as Christians is to show love towards others so others may learn about the love of Christ.
Anyway, enjoy this book with your children! I haven't found any other like this on the market. Just be careful because it is very wordy for young children but you can simplify it for them. It is fine for 10-13 year olds as is. God Bless! Julie Ann
A great resource Sep 24, 2004
This is the best book on this subject I've ever seen. It was a wonderful tool that we used to explain the "birds and the bees" to our 10-year-old. She loved it and never felt uncomfortable. We took our time and worked at her pace.
It's great to have resource that respects the morals and attitudes of those of us with Judeo-Christian world views.
Wonderful! Feb 18, 1999
Easy-to-read style; presents a lot of information and answers a lot of questions. Great artwork. Very age-appropriate and does not invade child's innocense.
Great for reading with your young children!! Dec 14, 1998
Helps parents talk to their kids about were babies come from, birth defects, etc! A must for families!
