Reviews - What do customers think about Fabulous Reinvention Of Sunday School?
Children's Ministry Library Mar 26, 2010
A must have for your Children's Ministry - any church whether small or large will benefit from the creative thinking. This is more than a "how-to" it's a "why didn't I think of that?" I highly recommend you buy two copies - one for your library, and one to pass around!

This Reinvention is Fabulous Aug 6, 2009
This book is informative, interesting to read, fun, full of great ideas and practical. Our teachers are getting excited again about Sunday School. Most books tell you what you need to do. This one tells you how to do it and models it for you.
Aaron Reynolds ROCKS!!! Dec 9, 2007
Aaron Reynolds has a great passion for helping kids apply God's Word to their lives. I had the wonderful opportunity to sit in on two of his children's ministry workshops, hosted my Willow Creek Community Church. Every time I have applied his techniques to my teaching, the kids LOVE IT! They hang on the edge of their seats, they don't interrupt, they're completely quiet, ready to participate on my signal. I don't have to stop teaching to tell someone to pay attention, not anymore! I have used Reynolds techniques on small and very large groups of kids, the results are the same...TOTALLY AWESOME!
Aaron's teaching style is unforgettable! And now, he's put it in a book for us to look on time and time again. I highly recommend reading The Fabulous Reinvention of Sunday School for EVERYONE who teaches preschool to elementary age kids.
Reynolds techniques can be applied to teaching any subject, as well as God's Word. If you want the lessons to stick and have an audience that hangs on to the very end...you need this book. The kids will love you for it! They will remember what you taught them long after you will. Be prepared for kids to come up to you asking you about a lesson you taught two months ago. It really happens, trust me.
