This Book is Wonderful Apr 23, 2002
I am a Children's Pastor, and found this book through my this site Recommendations (thanks this site!). It is fantastic. The object lessons are easy to do, and really grab the attention of kids. Each lesson is keyed to a scripture and a quick "devotion" but I've often found that in going over a given illusion or illustration, I will be inspired to take it in an entirely different direction, and build an entire children's sermon on it. Other times, like last week, I used three objects from this book during one lesson.
The mark of a good object lesson for kids is when you're doing it, and you hear "oooooooh!" rise up from your congregation. This book is full of "ooooooooohs!"
Highly recommended. Can be adapted to small Sunday School classes, or full blown Children's Church.
Perfect for group devotions Sep 2, 1997
The text is easy to understand and the projects are easy to do. I would recommend this book for anyone who is involved with elementary age children. It's a different approach to the typical "sunday school lesson"
