Kindergarten 1 includes:
These workbooks are just right for that occasional break from play and busy life, gently teaching matching, differentiating, coloring in 8 colors, cutting and counting to four. The pages are very plain and wholesome, not distracting, and focus on specific beginning skills. The series was developed for their own children by an Amish family.
The New Bible in Pictures for Little Eyes
Geared for young children, this popular title is written by Kenneth N. Taylor and beautifully illustrated by Annabel Spenceley. The 112 stories of the Old and 72 of the New Testaments are each presented with an illustration that captures the essence of the event, a simplified narrative (with the actual Scripture references) for reading aloud to your children, reinforcing questions, and a prayer to connect your children with the lesson presented. A wonderful way to introduce young children to what the Bible has to offer to us all.
