Children love to learn to talk, they love new words, they love the contact and friendships that result from chatting with family, neighbours and friends. They are not afraid to ask for anything. When something is wrong they tell you about it - loudly. Reading these stories will show you and the child you read to how people in the Bible spoke with God. We too can have a friendship with him through prayer. Each story includes Scripture references, a question that focuses on the story, something to spot in the pictures and an idea to stay with you through the day.
