Harvest House Publishers The Ten Commandments for Little Ones

The Ten Commandments serve as the building blocks for the Christian life, so it's never too soon to begin teaching them to young children. Easy-to-understand language, engaging illustrations, and clear descriptions let little ones hide God's rules in their own hearts for a lifetime of living the right way.

Children will draw closer to God and grow good relationships with family and friends as they learn God's Top Ten rules, including "Worship God-not things" and "Be good to your parents, obey them, and show them your love." They'll dig a little deeper to discover why God made these rules and how they can best follow them.

A fun quiz at the end of the book lets readers see how much they've learned and gives grown-ups an opportunity to talk about God's great love for everyone and His expectations for our words and actions. A perfect way for parents, homeschoolers, teachers, grandparents, and friends to introduce the Ten Commandments to God's beloved children.Recommended for ages 3 - 7.

This set of 10 Commandments is not for Lutherans or Catholics as we have a diferring arrangement per Luther"s Small Catechism.

The Ten Commandments are a difficult subject to cover for young children because some of the commandments deal directly with adult issues like adultery and murder. But Nolan does a superb job explaining such issues without becoming explicit. For example, with the seventh commandment, Nobel writes: "When a man and a woman get married, they promise to only love each other, and not to love anyone else in that same special way. Joseph worked for a married man. The man's wife wanted to love Joseph the way she loved her husband, but Joseph said, 'No!' and ran away. You should run away from people who want you to break your promises to God and to others."In fact, Nolan touches upon a Bible story each time she writes about another commandment, but never fails to shed light on how the commandments fit into a child's everyday life, also.In addition, she offers an introduction, explaining how the Ten Commandments came about, plus a page of questions to help children "dig deeper" into the meaning of the Ten Commandments, scripture references, a note to parents and teachers, and a two page glossary of terms (like "blessing" and "idol") that might not be familiar to children.What I Like: Everything! Nolan does a superb job making the Ten Commandments understandable and applicable to children. This is the best picture book I've read on this topic, and I can't recommend it highly enough. The illustrations by Janet Samuel are a terrific addition to the book, showing children of many ethnicities, plus Bible characters, in colorful, cute drawings.What I Dislike: Not a thing.Overall Rating: Excellent.Kristina Seleshanko, Managing Editor, Christian Children's Book Review
