Pro-life kids!

by Bethany Bomberger
48 pages / 2019

What I most liked about this book is that my kids just picked it up and started reading it. This is the sort of book they really ought to read – it is educational, teaching them about the unborn, about what they can do to stand up for these babies, and about how the unborn are being dehumanized by those that want to kill them – but educational doesn’t always mean enjoyable. So it was a very pleasant surprise to find out this one hit both marks.

Illustrator Ed Koehler’s bright colors got them to open it in the first place, and then author Bethany Bomberger’s rhyming text kept their attention. One example:

Sadly there are those who don’t understand
That life has a purpose whether planned or unplanned
Throughout history many believed a lie.
“You’re not a person! No way!” they cried
Today many people think that lie is still true
That babies in wombs aren’t people too….

After describing the problem, the book concludes with a rallying cry for all the readers to be

…pro-life kids ‘til injustice ends!
We are pro-life kids. It’s life we defend!

I’d highly recommend this for every school or church library!

The Ology: Ancient Truths, Ever New

by Marty Machowski 224 pages / 2015 I am always on the lookout for good books for our Church library, local Christian school and for our grandchildren, and just yesterday received my copy of Marty Machowski’s The ology. I am very impressed! It is a systematic theology for children that I would say is geared to ages 5 to 8 as a read-aloud but it can be used by older children in personal study. Chapters are very short, averaging 2 minutes, plus reading a few texts.  Each beautifully illustrated story is accompanied with two or three texts written out, and references for four or five others to be looked up. These text references certainly add to the book. A parent guide at the beginning suggests ways to use it with different age groups, and a short glossary at the end, as well as discussion questions for each chapter, all make this an easy, enjoyable book to use. I think The Ology is a "must have" for any family with children. Most parents are faithful in teaching the Bible stories but can have a harder time with the "theology" part and this will be a good aid for them. You can click here for a 12-page preview....
