My 3yr old daughter grasps most of it and reading through it requires VERY little adjustment even for a 3yr old's theology. Book has HUGE focus on who, what, how, where, why God/Jesus Christ is - which I think is spectacular - and a lot less on the "7 steps to sanctification" kinda stuff, or "how to be a kind person". While these things are not bad - will honestly still get you straight to hell without Christ :)
Questions at the end of each lesson are kinda funky, some WAY too abstract for younger children but.. you should be asking your own anyway, use printed ones as spring-boards! This book WILL help you lay the proper foundation of Christianity for young children. I found myself only making ever-so-slight adjustments to the wording/teaching as I read through with my daughter, and I am VERY picky about content. IGNORE the nay-Sayers who complain about using KJV wording, its very sparse and should be easy for any adult to edit on the fly with modern wording/pronouns etc.
FYI I am a professionally trained pastor/bible teacher so.. I've read a LOT of these kinds of books.
Highly recommend for ages 3-10
So, instead of asking a question and giving an answer, the concepts are presented in a conversational fashion. While I do agree with one reviewer who balked at certain word choices like 'happy', if the adult will read the material first, those words can be substituted with more appropriate ones. In other words, it shouldn't be a deal breaker. I've also found that some of the Scripture readings at the end of the section aren't the best ones. Again, with a little prep work, the adult, using their own Bible concordance, can find Scriptures that relate to the section a little better and use the same verbiage. This is a good thing because you are studying right along with your children.
Moving along. The questions after each reading are great and while not always terribly thought-provoking, ensure the child/children were listening and grasp the main concepts. The hymns are strange to me because I only know the tune of a few of them. We usually skip them or sing the ones we know that speak of the same things. If I were really on top of my game, I would use iTunes or something to play the song.
So honestly, the only thing I don't like is that I think that in certain sections, there are better memory verses and Scriptures that could be used to drive home the point. We also use the Hide'em in Your Heart music CDs and some of those verses are in this book too, so that makes it easier.
In short, there are so many options out there to systematically and logically teach young children key Biblical doctrines. I've found this to be one of the best for young children because you don't have to spend time stopping and explaining things or substituting difficult vocabulary. This sometimes happens when the children are of different ages. My five year old really enjoys this book because she understands the way the material is presented and she is able to answer the questions. Ultimately, we as parents are commanded to train our children and bring them up in the ways of the Lord. To do this in a haphazard or inconsistent manner can be disastrous. This book is a wonderful tool to lay a solid Biblical foundation for your children.
