A is for Adam - The Gospel from Genesis by Ken & Mally Ham

Recommendation: Highly Recommended

Can you believe the entire message of the Gospel can be found in the book of Genesis? This children's book will take you from A to Z all the while explaining to your child God's plan of salvation - starting with creation. You and your child will love the rhymes, the colorful illustrations and the quirky little dodo bird who adds his own comments.

Positives: A tremendous resource for families or anyone who works with young children! The first pages of the book tell you how to use the different sections of the book. There is a mini commentary after the story that further explains the gospel message and gives the Scriptures that the book is based on. It also gives ideas for activities for your child to further reinforce the concepts from Scripture. The end of the book gives black and white replicas of the pictures in the book that can be used for coloring pages.

Negatives: None

Talking Points: This book makes it easy for you by providing Scriptures at the back of the book that correspond with each  letter page. Emphasize that God had a plan from the beginning to send His Son as a sacrifice and we can know that just from the book of Genesis.

Age Level: 2-9

For any readers in the Middlefield, Ohio area I will be reading this book at the Sparrow Christian Bookstore ( 14962 State Street), for a parent/child reading time on Tuesday, March 8 at 10:00am. Please joins us!
