Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers: The Gospel

Joey Allen's "Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers: The Gospel" offers a kid-friendly approach to teaching the truth of the Bible to young children. This book is a wonderful tool for parents and teachers who want to build a Christian foundation in their child's life at an early age.

The character Gracie talks directly to your child throughout the book and addresses fundamentals about God's unending love, how our sins separate us from God and how Jesus took the punishment for our sins so we can be reconciled with God. The words used are simple and stated in a way that young children can relate. My four-year-old son listened attentively and asked me questions throughout the book, which indicated to me that he grasped the concepts presented. The illustrations are uncomplicated and endearing and kept my two-year-old interested as we read the book in its entirety. At the bottom of each page, scripture references are provided for further reading.

This book provides an excellent starting point for parents and teachers to proclaim the Good News to the youngest listeners.
