Let the Children Come is a book for people who teach children
about Jesus--parents, Sunday school teachers, Bible Study teachers,
etc. Pat Lamb has provided 52 lessons, one for each week of the
year. Each lesson is approximately 1-3 pages in length. Each lesson
starts with a Scripture verse and a list of what you will need
for the lesson. Following is the meat of the lesson--either a story,
an object lesson, or something else. In conclusion, there is a
As an example, for November there are four lessons: Being Thankful
for My Church, Being Thankful for Freedom, Why is This Happening
to Me, and Saying Thanks to God. The chapter "Why Is This Happening
to Me" tells about Squanto, who helped the Pilgrims and then was
tricked and taken on a ship to Spain and sold as a slave. While
he was there, some people told him about God and he was saved.
He eventually was able to return to America. Because of what he
suffered, he found God and God's will for his life.
This would make a great book for family devotions that involve
all the children in your family. The lessons include questions
for little ones and questions for older ones. It would also make
a great resource book for those involved in teaching children in
any other capacity. I am very pleased to have this book as part
of my library to use for a teaching resource. This book is a paperback,
and it sells for $12.99 on Tate Publishing's website.
