These children's object lessons use an interactive presentation. Topical and scriptural indexes are helpful in selecting the appropriate message.
The outstanding feature of these children's object lessons is the interactive approach Fannin takes in presenting them. Children are involved through leading questions.
The topical and scriptural indexes at the back are helpful in selecting the appropriate children's message for the time of year or to correspond with the adult sermon.
Kathleen Fannin is an excellent writer and a sensitive Biblical interpreter, and both skills are evident in this collection. In each children's sermon, the Bible is used carefully and conscientiously.
