Is a mom on the brink of 50 years of age allowed to have a children's title as her favorite book for 2004? I sure hope so because I am totally excited about this book and we don't even have a child in the targeted age range!

Why am I so thrilled about this devotional book? Because, most devotional books for young children allow distortion to creep in for the sake of simplicity. Not so here. This is solid Biblical teaching at its finest. If you are looking for a way to present your young children the essentials of theology in an easy to digest format, look no further.

Each of the 36 chapters begins with simplified questions from the Westminster catechism, followed by a realistic story children can easily relate to. Each story links to the next as a godly family endeavors to teach their children Biblical truths.

Any blemishes to be aware of? Only a couple. The chapter on infant baptism reflects Presbyterian doctrine, though it mentions both types of baptism. I think this would generate a wonderful discussion, but I know that for some of you, infant baptism is heresy, so I thought it would be best to mention it. Too, though the illustrations of the children are charming, they are dressed contemporarily, meaning there are some children wearing swimsuits or shorts. While modest dress is certainly our desire, I sincerely hope that something so minor will not stop any of you from considering this jewel of a book.

Recommended for ages 5 - 8, but I think many 3-year-olds could grasp the truths. 160 pages, hardback.

Uses King James, New King James, and New International Version Bible references.

Awesome for teaching the basics of faith September 26, 2011
Reviewer: micci granger from Rantoul, IL United States  
After using this with my own children I broke this down into weekly segments to teach to my children's church students. What I loved was that the characters in the book become personal to you as you learn more with them through each story.

Great Way to Teach Essential Truths! February 10, 2011
Reviewer: Gabrielle from New York  
I have been using this book with my three year old daughter as a morning devotional. Although some of the concepts in the stories are a little difficult for her to grasp, she really enjoys listening to them. I am amazed at how quickly she is able to memorize the answers to the catechism questions. The best thing about using this book is that I have seen her apply what she is memorizing to other situations. She is really internalizing these important Biblical truths. I highly recommend this book, even for young children.

Really helps children understand October 19, 2010
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Buckeye, AZ United States  
We really liked going through this book with our children!  The Hunts really have a gift for making concepts of doctrine and theology clear for children.  I like how the story is set in the context of family discipleship.  I recommend this book.

Really liking this one! October 18, 2010
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
This book is great.  It provides a fin relaxing way to incorporate Gods teachings into daily conversation.  It guides you into good discussions with your children, and really makes them think.  Do be prepared for some tough questions from your children.  Sometimes we have to save some of them for the supper table when Daddy is home.  The kids also enjoy it.  This one is a winner!

Wonderful family devotions book! October 13, 2010
Reviewer: Carrie Anne from Maine  
Our family bought this book based on the recommendation of a fellow homeschooling family.  It has been a wonderful addition to our family devotions.  The main characters are interesting and our children have been anxious to see what happens to them in each new reading.  This book has proved to be the best introduction to the catechism for younger children that we have seen and for that alone we would have enjoyed it.  Best of all, in our opinion, one of the stores was instrumental in our then 4 year old accepting Christ.  We spent several months reading and re-reading this aloud and though it is currently on the shelf for a while, we know it will be coming back out soon to be re-read.  We look forward to seeing what our children learn on the next trip through the book!
