From the Author
It's exciting to see so many churches and families continuing to discover Route 66, using it to help their kids discover or deepen their love for God's Word! I've been getting some questions lately through my website that I'd like to try to answer here. (Most of them are answered in the introduction to the book; Amazon and the publisher -- Carson-Dellosa -- do feature "search inside" previews, but some sellers don't.)
The lessons are intended to get kids opening the Bible themselves -- flipping through its pages -- actually reading it, not just listening to someone else or watching a video! They include worksheets with questions, which younger children can complete as a group; however, students do need to be able to read and write, so the book is listed as "Grades 2-5." Of course, you can use any Bible translation you choose! And the materials were created to be used by churches of any traditional Christian denomination. The emphasis is on basic Bible facts; the only doctrine is that taught in Scripture, as described in the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed, and commonly accepted as the essential definition of Christianity.
Each week there are suggestions for Bible stories you can teach, but not a prescribed story (or passage) -- so that you can choose what's most appropriate for the ages of the children in your group and their familiarity with Scripture. (Start with a basic? Or one they haven't heard?) We do skip around a little with the historical books, because there's some repetition in the Scripture itself. (We didn't want to confuse kids by covering the life of King David, going on to the other kings, then coming back to David again.) There are some fun games and crafts and puzzles -- at least one a week. And then other general suggestions for you to take the theme and run with it.
Finally, sometimes I'm asked about own denominational background. Before I answer, it might help to know that this book was produced by Carson-Dellosa's Christian publishing division -- they only publish traditional, orthodox Christian church resources. They vetted me thoroughly as an author before they published me, and this wasn't my first book for them. My own church background and ministry is interdenominational. I have a bachelors degree in Christian Leadership (with a minor in Systematic Theology) and a masters degree in Biblical Theology from two reputable, nationally accredited evangelical Christian universities. You can find more information on either of my websites -- ChristinDitchfield.com or TakeItToHeartRadio.com -- or my Amazon Author Page.
So grateful for each one of you who volunteers your time to teach His precious little ones. May God richly bless you!
From the Back Cover
Perfect for Sunday school, VBS, Christian school, or homeschool, children will learn each book’s main characters and stories, as well as its author, era, purpose, and key verse. The lessons are divided into three 12-week units, but each page can stand alone―without any prior instruction―so that it can be used in a pinch or to supplement other materials.
Route 66: A Trip through the 66 Books of the Bible also includes bonus pages guiding kids to study the Bible for themselves, have personal devotions, keep a prayer journal, and memorize Scripture. This is one road trip you won’t want to miss!

Wonderfully written, plenty of worksheets to choose from. Love it!
In terms of content, it is great, I would gear it more towards 9-10 or older. My daughter is 8 and a lot of the activities are great but when it comes to reading the key texts, I almost wish that the book came with a specific text or version. I feel like reading one of the 4-5 key texts in one chunk could lose their interest.
The shipping was quick and the cost was reasonable.
