Ultimate Help for Children's Ministers Oct 31, 2007
This small book is packed with knowledge about what a great children's ministry looks like, and how teachers can be a part of that process. I would highly recommend it to encourage & train children's teachers of all ages. It also will encourage them to hold the "person in charge" accountable, so that they can provide all that the teacher needs to be successful.
Helps with the butterflies Oct 18, 2007
I purchased this book after God led me to volunteer to teach a preschool Sunday school class at church. I am a single man, and have no idea how to teach anyone, let alone children of that age. This book really gave me a lot of insight as to what children in the preschool age group will act like, how they learn, and how to teach them. I mean, this book covers ages from nursery to 6th grade, which is nice since most books stores have are for youth group, meaning Jr. High to High School. I highly recommend this book to anyone teaching Sunday school to children from nursery to 6th grade. It helped calm some of my nerves as to what to do, and how to do it.
