Format: Paperback
I am so impressed with this children's devotional! The language is written to capture a child's attention and hold it. The power and wonder of God is displayed and portrayed throughout the entire book, in every lesson. It is easy for a young child to understand, and deep and meaningful enough to inspire thought in an older child. We are halfway through and will be repeating it again after we are finished.
It begins with Part One: Looking for God, and Part Two: God is Very Great. Each "part" consists of about 5-8 individual lessons on the subject, using people from the Bible to learn from, in how God uses them. Then we are taken through the introduction of sin, God's law, what Jesus did for us, prayer, and several others, ending with Part Fourteen: Things That Are to Happen. Each lesson includes "something to talk about" (questions for the children to answer about the lesson), a related Scripture from the Bible, suggested Bible reading, a hymn to sing that relates to the lesson, and a prayer to say, asking the Lord to help us with those things we learned that day in our lesson.
Needless to point out here, I can't say enough about this devotional. It is a wonderful way to teach your children about God in a thorough and consistant way, and help them to love learning about the Lord and his nature, and what he does for his children. You'll love going through it with your little ones and watching their love and understanding for God grow.

"Leading Little Ones to God" by Marian M. Schoolland is a tremendous book for teaching small children basic bible truths. It answers typical questions little children would ask about God, what God requires of us, how one gets to heaven, etc. This book is great for bedtime reading. Originally published in 1962, this is a timeless classic for children's books about the Bible.

I had a hard time trying to find a book that could easily communicate, in a child's language, the truths about God and the bible. As a parent, sometimes it's difficult to explain to a small child what we already know. This book does an exceptional job explaining different truths in each story. My children loved hearing the stories each night, and the simple questions at the end of each story stimulated their thinking. I read this book to them each night as they were toddlers and small children. Today, they are teenagers and have an excellent foundation with knowing right from wrong and biblical truths. I highly recommend this book to any parent who wants their child to know God.

My boys, ages 5, 7 and 9, and I went through this book over the last year, with each son taking turns reading the associated scripture, reading or singing the hymn (we knew about 1/3 of them) or praying through the closing prayer. It really did cover the basics of the Christian faith and life in more depth than we would normally discuss. I consider this a classic and highly recommend it.

I have used this to put together a Sunday School lesson at the last minute. Very conservative, traditional, fundamental view of doctrine. I love it. I am buying copies for all my nieces and nephews whose...parents don't know how to answer their questions about God.

My only (big) beef with this book is that the author consistently paraphrases the Bible, then puts the paraphrase in quotes. Perhaps that sounds nit picky, but then again we are talking about God's Word.

Theology is sound, simple, and biblical.
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

I don't remember exactly why I purchased this book, but I'm glad I did! It can be very difficult to explain difficult doctrine to adults, much less small children, but it is no less important. All believers need to know what they believe and why. Once you realize that, it can be hard to know where to begin. I use Starr Meade's book, 'Teaching Hearts, Training Minds' which is a catechism devotional book. Leading Little Ones to God is a very nice addition to my children's daily teaching because while it is geared towards smaller children, older ones can also benefit from an alternate look at the same concepts. This book is not a catechism book, but it still follows the Westminster Shorter Catechism's explanation of Christian doctrine.

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.
