We were recently given a copy of With the Children on Sundays by Sylvanus Stall from Grace & Truth Books to review. Written in 1893, With the Children on Sundays is known as one of the greatest Family Worship books ever written. This book is full of wonderful stories that speak biblical truths to children in a way that captivates them, while sharing the truths of the gospel and of Christ. It is great for all ages, but particularly good for children ages 4-10.
There are 52 stories in With the Children on Sundays, some of them include:
- Oyster and Crab- Conscience
- Worm in the Apple - Sin in the Human Heart
- Nuts - God Means that We Must Work
- The Polished Stone - Perfection Through Suffering
- Lanterns - The Best Light for Our Path
- White and Charred Sticks - Good and Bad Company
The children and I are enjoying reading through this book together. The stories are interesting, as well as thought provoking. We have also delighted the simple illustrations that are speckled through out the book, as well as the discussion questions at the end of each story. They have really opened doors to some wonderful conversations.
One of the things that I love about homeschooling is that I have the privilege of picking and choosing what my children read. Whenever I can, I try to incorporate good books that offer character building stories and biblical truths. This is one of those books. It is a rare gem that we will continue to use over and over!
With the Children on Sundays has been out of print many years and is not being printed by anyone at this time. Currently, there are only a limited number of copies of it available. You can purchase your copy from Grace & Truth Books for $17.50
