Familiar, Comforting Stories Jan 3, 2007
My mother read to me from Little Visits back in the 70's, and the familiar morality stories have been updated but retain the same lessons. My boys, ages 5 & 7, both enjoy a "little visit" every night in addition to our regular reading. This is a nice way to help reinforce values of kindness, responsibility, and the golden rule without being heavy-handed.
Great for young children Jul 5, 2006
My parents read this same book to me and my sisters when we were children (the 1970's version). I bought it for my boys who are 5 and 3. We read one story every night at dinner and discuss the questions at the end. It has wonderful everyday life circumstances that they can relate to. They actually remind me on the nights I forget. I never thought I would hear my children say "Mom, can we do our bible lesson". I recommend this book to anyone with children!!!
A wonderful book Feb 21, 2004
My mother used to read a story from this book every night before bed from the copy that she had as a child. Now that I have a daughter, this is the first book I went looking for so I can share the same experience with her as I did with my mother. This book is wonderful on teaching lessons, exploring feelings and using stories to show the teachings of Christ in our daily lives. They also have questions to discuss with your child after the story plus many scriptures from the bible to read with them. I can't wait until my daughter is older so her and I can enjoy this book together.
Since I was a child Oct 19, 2002
I'm 34 years old. This book was given to me when I was 8. It served as the backstop against all of the angst, fear, anger and confusion of pre-pubescent existence. When "bobby" threw a rock at me, I turned to this book. When "jenny" didn't return my affection, I turned to this book. When "Joey" violated my trust, I turned to this book. Nothing can bridge the gap between the teachings of Jesus and the adolocent existence. My dear people, if you do anything for you youth, do buy this book. Give it to them. And let them use it as they will - with God's help. Surely, you will benefit.
Engage Your Children During Family Devotions Feb 28, 2002
This is a wonderful tool for parents who are trying to find a way to reach their children during family devotions. Each story begins with a theme Bible verse, and then presents a story involving children and their parents related to the Bible passage. Afterward, there is a series of questions so that you can discuss the story with your children. For older children there is an extended Bible reading listed. Finally there is a concluding prayer.
Not only will this help involve your children in family devotions, but the questions also help to develop listening skills. These benefits flow into church on Sunday morning. I highly recommend this book for anyone trying to involve their children in family devotions.
