A Word from the Author Sep 17, 2009
The publisher mistakenly gave this book the subtitle: "A Year's Worth of Preschool Programs." This book is not just for preschoolers! It's organized and written just like our other children's church books and is filled with lively stories, discussions, snacks, and activities for kids in the primary grades, as well as preschoolers. Check it out!
Good choice for sunday school teachers with limited time & $ Sep 3, 2009
I really like this book. The activities are fun for the kids and easy to do. My only problem so far is that the kids don't seem to retain a whole lot of the Bible lesson. For instance last week we did "The Yellow Sun" lesson and it had the lesson in the Bible from Genesis about how God created the sun, moon and stars, then we did the craft and snack and song and other craft, but when I asked my 4 year old what he learned in Sunday School, he couldn't remember, and he's always remembering what he learns and excited to tell, but he did remember the craft. I think I'm going to start reinforcing the lesson with some follow-up questions like I used to--that really seemed to help the kids "get" the point of the lesson. But other than that I love the crafts, they easy and not time consuming to prepare and the ideas are cute.
