How God Sent A Dog To Save A Family by Joel Beeke & Diana Kleyn

RecommendationHighly recommended

This collection of short stories is an excellent resource for anyone who works in Children's Ministry as well as for families. Each story contains a lesson based upon a real-life account and is accompanied with Scripture reading and questions to discuss with your child. At the back of the book there are also corresponding prayer points for each story.  This is the 5th book in The Building On The Rock Series and its stories are based on the themes of God's care and childhood faith.

Postives: An excellent resource to use for personal illustration and application for any occasion including Sunday School, family devotions or any occasion to teach children.  There is a brief introduction given on how to use the book as well as an index given of longer and shorter length stories, depending on the amount of time you have.

Negatives: None

Talking Points: As I mentioned above, each lesson already gives you a Scripture passage, questions and prayer points to use in conjunction with the story. Just a note to make, this book is not written to be read through all at once, but used periodically to supplement a Bible lesson or devotion time. Almost all the stories have a happy ending and reading them one after another can be misleading to children.
