About this Book

This book is a wonderful tool for parents and grandparents to teach their young children about God the Father and Jesus Christ directly from the Bible. Jane Spring, of Queensland, Australia, originally designed and wrote this book to read to her grandchildren. She drew many pictures herself, as well as writing all the scriptures by hand. Her style of writing brings the message of God to children in an easy-to-understand manner. So impressive was her work, that York Publishing Company enlisted the services of Don and Bonnie Burrows to reproduce it in this book following Jane’s original layout.

Parents and grandparents are encouraged to use this book to help inspire their children and grandchildren in the Pathways of God. As the book of Proverbs instructs, “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Prov. 22:6). Children need to realize that good and loving behavior in obedience to God and parents, brings blessings directly to them from God, parents, grandparents and others. It is true, “Even a child is known by his own doings, whether his work is pure and whether it is right” (Prov. 20:11).

Beginning in Genesis, Jane Spring tells the account of God’s creation of the heavens and earth-the fish, birds and animals. How God in His love created Adam and Eve; how they sinned and went against God; why God caused the Flood of Noah’s time; the calling of Abraham and the life of David. Finally, she relates the account of Jesus Christ-why He came, what He preached and why He died for them, because He loves them; and how children are to love and serve Him in their lives daily.

Since children are never too young to learn, and want to learn, there are special instructions from the Book of Proverbs and personal memory verses about God’s pathway for each child: How to be good and honest; how to avoid sin and trouble; how to begin to study the Bible; how to pray to God the Father-in order to love Jesus, their parents, grandparents, their brothers and sisters and their friends and neighbors.
