Book Description

Jan. 1 2009

The Ten Commandments serve as the building blocks for the Christian life, so its never too soon to begin teaching them to young children. Easy-to-understand language, engaging illustrations, and clear descriptions let little ones hide Gods rules in their own hearts for a lifetime of living the right way.

Children will draw closer to God and grow good relationships with family and friends as they learn Gods Top Ten rules, including Worship God--not things and Be good to your parents, obey them, and show them your love. Theyll dig a little deeper to discover why God made these rules and how they can best follow them.

A fun quiz at the end of the book lets readers see how much theyve learned and gives grown-ups an opportunity to talk about Gods great love for everyone and His expectations for our words and actions. A perfect way for parents, homeschoolers, teachers, grandparents, and friends to introduce the Ten Commandments to Gods beloved children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Jan. 5 2009
By Kristina Seleshanko - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
When you're ready to help your children move beyond the most basic understanding of the Ten Commandments, Allia Zobel Nolan's "The Ten Commandments for Little Ones" is an excellent choice.

The Ten Commandments are a difficult subject to cover for young children because some of the commandments deal directly with adult issues like adultery and murder. But Nolan does a superb job explaining such issues without becoming explicit. For example, with the sixth commandment, Nobel writes about Cain and Abel:

"Cain became so angry that he sinned by hitting his brother and killing him...Hating, or having bad feelings about someone, is the first step toward wanting to hurt or get back at them..."

For the seventh commandment, she writes:

"When a man and a woman get married, they promise to only love each other, and not to love anyone else in that same special way. Joseph worked for a married man. The man's wife wanted to love Joseph the way she loved her husband, but Joseph said, 'No!' and ran away. You should run away from people who want you to break your promises to God and to others."

In fact, Nolan touches upon a Bible story each time she writes about another commandment, but never fails to shed light on how the commandments fit into a child's everyday life, also.In addition, she offers an introduction, explaining how the Ten Commandments came about, plus a page of questions to help children "dig deeper" into the meaning of the Ten Commandments, scripture references, a note to parents and teachers, and a two page glossary of terms (like "blessing" and "idol") that might not be familiar to children.

What I Like: Everything! Nolan does a superb job making the Ten Commandments understandable and applicable to children. This is the best picture book I've read on this topic, and I can't recommend it highly enough. The illustrations by Janet Samuel are a terrific addition to the book, showing children of many ethnicities, plus Bible characters, in colorful, cute drawings.

What I Dislike: Not a thing.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

We love this book. It's absolutely wonderful for teaching young children about the ten commandments. As an adoptive mom, I truly appreciate the diversity in the children illustrated. We all love the message, the easy to understand words and illustrations. A great way to teach children the 10 Commandments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my three year old! July 3 2012
By ICS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a wonderful book for teaching little ones the ten commandments in language they can understand. My 3 year old son and I read the book through 2 complete times adding 1 commandment each day until we got to 10 - after the second time through he said, "mommy can I read it to you?". At that point, he recited each commandment based on the photo we had discussed. We are now working on a deeper understanding of each commandment. Book is exceptionally written and illustrated!

The information in this book was written so that it could be understood by a 7 year old and that was my intention. I received it in the time that was promised and it was in good condition.
