Everyone a Child Should know has done a wonderful job of collecting a broad range of people to introduce young children to. As Heath-Whyte says, "there are missionaries and martyrs (although fewer martyrs than you might find in a book for older children!), writers, reformers, politicians, preachers and poets. There are sporty people, arty people, brilliant people, and very ordinary people. There are people from hundreds of years ago and people still living today. Some are very well known and some are almost unheard of. Jesus has always had, and always will have, friends in all shaped, sizes and colours, from all different countries and backgrounds." I absolutely love this introduction for the parents. It is a great reminder of the scene in Revelation 7 of people "from every nation, from all tribes and people and language, standing before the throne and the lamb." These short, one-page biographies will connect children to 52 people from Church history. An illustration by Jenny Brake is added to each biography providing a very nice visual for children. There are also Memory Cards that can be purchased to aid children in remembering these people as they read through the book from week to week. I love this book and it will be one that is used in my home often for years to come. Highly recommended.
Everyone A Child Should Know is a book about 52 heroes of the Christian faith, from across the centuries and across cultures. It is a wonderfully designed and illustrated book, written for parents to read to younger children that they might be introduced at an early age to some heroes of the faith, friends and followers of Jesus from all walks of life, who served Him, their Saviour and Lord, in all sorts of ways. It is written to introduce young children to Jesus that they might trust Him, love Him and serve Him in their own lives. As one who loves to read biographies, this is a great introduction to the lives of some heroes whose lives still inspire us to love and serve Jesus Christ today.
This is such a wonderful book. I was so excited to get my copy and have started reading it with my two boys (5 and 4). It is an excellent way to introduce little ones to some of the heroes of the faith.
