Learning God’s Life Lessons
The Adventures Of Teddy by Olly Goldenberg and Laura Hilton is a perfect series for very small children to learn about having a relationship with God.
The main character Teddy is easy to relate to. He is simply and colourfully drawn and will appeal to all small children. Teddy has fears and questions about life that are explored in the books.
The stories use simple language and repetition enabling easy access for children. The stories are perfect starting points for parents to have discussions with even the smallest of children about life and faith and God.
The books are perfect to either read aloud to small ones or for early readers to read themselves.
At the end of each book there are notes for parents and Biblical references to help to continue discussions with our children.
Our children are never too young to know about a God who loves them and cares for them. I am looking forward to sharing these books with my granddaughters.
Teddy Learns To Pray: In this book we explore just what prayer is – it is not difficult, it is simply having a conversation with God. Too often we over complicate just what prayer is.
Teddy Reads The Bible: Here we see Teddy has questions for God about His interactions with our world. Teddy’s mummy shows him that the answers to all his questions can be found in the Bible. The Bible is God’s instruction manual to us and we need to open it. We need to know the Word of God so that in difficult times we can stand on it.
Teddy Says Sorry: Here we learn about saying sorry, forgiveness and grace. Teddy learns that Jesus bridged the gap between us and God when He went to the cross.
Teddy Asks God To Help: Teddy learns that God is always beside him no matter what happens of how he is feeling, God is always there. I loved Teddy’s reply to is mummy:
“It’s okay mummy
I’ll be fine, you’ll see.
If I talk to God
Then He will help me.”
A lesson that we would all be wise to learn.
All the Teddy books can be found on the website www.childrencan.co.uk.
