“You shall teach them diligently to your children and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up” Deuteronomy 6:7
“If I had $500 to spend on everything I could use to train my preschoolers in faith, I would purchase the “Family Bible Library” and many, many picture books from Answers in Genesis. Children are inundated from earliest ages with the falsehoods of “millions of years,” etc.---we must counteract that information found in movies (even some of our favorite animated ones have references to it!), music, cartoons, museums, zoos, etc. with the truth. Picture books from Answers in Genesis can help you do that.” from an earlier post...
I have already reviewed the “Family Bible Library”during this “when you rise up” segment. I am going to re-print some creation science picture book reviews (as referenced in the above quote form an earlier post) today—even though not all of these are ones we necessarily use “when we rise up.” As a side note, our “littles,” ages birth to six or so, were seldom up first thing in the morning for that “faith” time. I would do readings, songs, poems, etc. with them when I got them up later. However, the creation science picture books that I am sharing below are appropriate for the six to twelve year old age group too, so I am including them at this point in the “teach them diligently and talk of them…” series. Thanks for joining us!
a. Answers in Genesis!
b. “In the Days of Noah” by Gloria Clanin--one of our faves! http://www.answersingenesis.org/PublicStore/product/In-the-Days-of-Noah,4339,185.aspx
c. “The Bible Discovery Collection Bible Animals”—this is the perfect age to read animal creation science books!-- by Bruce Barton, James Galvin, Michael Kendrick, Daryl Lucas, David Veerman, Neil Wilson (looks out of print, but some on Amazon) http://www.amazon.com/Bible-Animals-Discovery-Collection/dp/084231038X/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1273891237&sr=1-3
d. “Dinosaurs and the Bible”—also the perfect age to read dinosaur creation science books!-- by David Unfred http://www.amazon.com/Dinosaurs-Bible-David-W-Unfred/dp/0910311706
e. Answers in Genesis also has an amazing search engine that lets you search by age group. This is especially helpful in choosing creation science books because you do not want to get one with too much text for a four year old but too little text for a ten year old.
