Let the Children Come Review by Christine Hindle

Let the Children Come is a book for people who teach children about Jesus--parents, Sunday school teachers, Bible Study teachers, etc. Pat Lamb has provided 52 lessons, one for each week of the year. Each lesson is approximately 1-3 pages in length. Each lesson starts with a Scripture verse and a list of what you will need for the lesson. Following is the meat of the lesson--either a story, an object lesson, or something else. In conclusion, there is a prayer.

As an example, for November there are four lessons: Being Thankful for My Church, Being Thankful for Freedom, Why is This Happening to Me, and Saying Thanks to God. The chapter "Why Is This Happening to Me" tells about Squanto, who helped the Pilgrims and then was tricked and taken on a ship to Spain and sold as a slave. While he was there, some people told him about God and he was saved. He eventually was able to return to America. Because of what he suffered, he found God and God's will for his life.

This would make a great book for family devotions that involve all the children in your family. The lessons include questions for little ones and questions for older ones. It would also make a great resource book for those involved in teaching children in any other capacity. I am very pleased to have this book as part of my library to use for a teaching resource. This book is a paperback, and it sells for $12.99 on Tate Publishing's website.
