18 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Sunday school teacher on February 28, 2007
Format: Paperback
I bought this book to use with our Children's Worship program. We have different volunteers teaching every week, some of them with very little teaching experience. So having material that is ready to teach is essential. This book has several creative ways to teach each of the parables. The instructions are detailed enough for those who are looking for a "cook book" to follow.

I was a bit disappointed that the suggestions are divided into ones to use with a younger group and other suggestions to use with an older group - I was looking for material to use with ages 4 through 11. But the lessons geared to the younger group worked well with this broad age range. I think the suggestions for the older group could be used with teenagers, too.

I appreciated the fresh storytelling approaches, and coverage of some of the less popular parables. I was also very happy with the interpretation of Jesus's message in each of the parables and they way the ideas bring out the lessons in addition to making them interesting and enjoyable.

If you're looking for solid, Bible-based, yet FUN Children's messages this is the book. As Pastor of a mutigenerational church I love its adaptability for so many ages, and I hope there's a "Volume II" in the works!

Fabulous summer curriculum option for large or small church groups. Creative, inventive, and full of ideas for every child in my program......ages 3-12. Brought the teachings of Jesus down to a very personal, relational, tangible, interactive, hands on, and often humerous level. We all loved it!

I really liked this book and the activities inside. I wish I had found it sooner. We did a one year Sunday school curriculum on parables and unfortunately I did not find it until May. There is a ton of fun stuff inside this book. The children really enjoyed the Rockin' to the Sheep Beat and Counting Sheep (a progressive rythmic version of the Sheep and the Goats story) followed by (a fill-in version of) the Counting Sheep story.
