Excellent! Jan. 5 2009
By Kristina Seleshanko - Published on
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.

Perfect for my three year old! July 3 2012
By ICS - Published on
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.
