As many of you know, I homeschool my children. One of the things I love the most about homeschooling is that I get the opportunity to work Bible study into their schedule and even weave it in with math, reading, science, and more. It is so amazing to see them get a concept and see their faces light up. This goes for core subjects, as well as with Bible Study. This past week, we learned about being filled with the spirit and when Tbomb got the concept after listening to "Lord, I Lift Your Name on High." To see his face light up and him explain how he felt in his heart, was priceless.
Kodabug listens and smiles along, and although I know she doesn't understand, she is learning a love of praise, the Bible, and prayer. Graham Blanchard, a Christian publisher, has a great collection of books for toddlers to learn about God with. The Learn, Absorb & Praise Classic Collection is one of their most popular, and I had a chance to review it with my little ones, and absolutely love it!
This Classic Collection ($26.97) include 3 amazing board books to help start your child out loving to learn about God. The set includes Jesus Shows Me, All of Me That You Can't See, and Mud Puddle Hunting Day. One of my favorite things about this set is that it comes wrapped in a beautiful casing that allows you to leave a personal note to the recipint. There is even a bonus- The Art of Gratitude, with tips and templates for a child to practice giving thanks. This is the perfect time of year to stress being thankful, when the world seems so greedy.
It is so easy to find books to expand an adult's understanding and love for God and Jesus' teaching. The resorces for children, especially very young children are lacking. Graham Blanchard has stepped in and made these books more available and with a wide variety of titles, your children will continue to grow in their love and understanding.
Graham Blanchard has recently published a document to help parents use these books to teach their children about God. The Scope And Sequence document is available as a PDF download and includes the scripture, faith concept, nature/ science concept, animal kingdom, how the book relates to relationships, and even the symbols included in the book. Download the document here.
