The adorable Would You Like to Know? Collection from Candle Books is a set of six little books in a slipcase. The titles include:
- Would you like to know Jesus?
- Would you like to know the Story of Easter?
- Would you like to know about God?
- Would you like to know How to Pray?
- Would you like to know the Story of Christmas?
- Would you like to know The Bible?
A Great Big Message in a Tiny Format
Written by Graham Jefferson, Tim Dowley, and Eira Reeves, these compact volumes contain a great big message. With simple and clear explanations of biblical concepts, the Would You Like to Know books feature full page illustrations and short, one-line blocks of text, which can be read in just a few minutes:
“God wants friends to be kind and loving and obedient. But often we are unkind, unloving, and disobedient. That stops us being friends with God” (from Would you like to know Jesus?).
I like how each book tackles only one main topic, catering to shorter attention spans of little learners. The cute illustrations highlight diverse and multicultural characters, as well as characters with disabilities.
What does it all mean?
Since young children have many questions about God and the Bible, meeting them at their level is very important. Sometimes, it’s hard to know how to explain things, but this collection really helps. Even though the books are very concise, they cover each topic thoroughly. The dedication page at the beginning of each book is a nice way for kids to personalize their collection. By the way, adults will learn a lot from this collection as they share it with the children in their lives. The explanation of prayer in Would you like to know How to Pray? is especially wonderful! If you ever want to know how to explain the whys, hows and whats of life, this resource is highly recommended.
