Recommendation: Highly Recommended
Positives: This book provides an excellent example of teaching children the whole of Scripture - not just parts of it. Ryle does not back down from what some would consider "hard truths" for children to grasp. He patiently provides illustration combined with true concern for their souls.
Negatives: Due to the fact that the stories are over 100 years old some of the language may need explaining.
Talking Points: Use the Scripture references given at the beginning of each story then just follow up with questions the author asks and application points he gives.
Age Level: Best suited for ages 7 and up, however if you want to use it as a family devotional with younger children it would work as well, just may need more explanation.
