<em>"If It Wasn't for God</em>, would something be missing...mountains for climbing or oceans to swim?" There are so many things that children learn throughout the book that we would be missing, <em>If It Wasn't for God</em>! They see that we wouldn't have all the wonderful things in Creation and how God has designed us so we can use our hands and feet to serve him and to serve each other. We would be missing the gift of Jesus and his salvation; and what about family and friends? They also find out, <em>If It Wasn't for God, </em>we would actually be missing them<em>! </em>
There's so much more for them to discover in addition to all the gifts that God has given us. This is not a book that tells Bible stories in children's language. The book helps children learn some of the concepts of the Christian faith, much like a how-to book in poetry form, speaking to them at their level of understanding and entertaining them at the same time. Each of the ten poems has a theme that addresses situations and asks questions such as; How do we learn to forgive others? How can we tell others about Jesus? How do we get through times when we are afraid? How can we help others? How do we know what's true? How can we pray? How do we obey God and our parents?
After each poem, the theme goes deeper with a brief prayer and a short section entitled "What Does the Bible Say?" This is where they discover that what they have just heard through poetry is actually what God's Word says about that very subject.
The overall design is bright and colorful and incorporates many illustrations created by children and placed into the design of the completed book. This is a book that's fun to read to children, or a book that some of the older children can read by themselves or to other children.<em> </em><em>I can also be </em>unique tool for teachers, parents and homeschoolers while they are engaging children in the learning process. There is also an opportunity to download Teaching Tips and Tools, a collection of lesson plans for each poem, from the author's website at no charge. This collection has suggestions for more in depth questions and also activities for hands-on learning.
