The Christian Alphabet Book by Tracy Sands


I found this book a very useful tool during our Homeschooling Bible Hour. Each letter and what Biblical truth it represents is presented; as well as a symbol to remember it by. Each 2 pages give an explanation of the Biblical truth, Bible verse, prayer, seek and find section and symbol picture.
Younger kids will love the seek and find where a group of objects are given that they must seek out and find in the symbol picture. I feel this kept the attention of my youngest as well as gave him a fun way to recognize the symbol. He also liked "Love" the Dove which represents the Holy Spirit and guides you through the book.
Included in the explanation is also an application that the child can relate to in their own life. Their is a handy guide for the parent at the back of the book that has an explanation of each symbol represented. So much can be gained by this book: learning the alphabet, explanation of a biblical truth and its application, bible memory, prayer time and more. More could be gained from this book if you take your time to go through it. It is not a quick picture book. It has a lot of Biblical information that could spark a lot of questions and conversations with your kids.
The only negative for me has to be the artwork. Don't misunderstand me the actual art is wonderful...Personally I felt the artwork a little to Catholic looking for my taste(you know Baptists..were funny like that). But this does not deter me from using it and teaching my children the lessons this book emanates.
I would highly recommend this resource for homes, schools, church libraries, homeschools, teachers and anyone who wants a great Bible tool for kids.
