Kate Brown and Marilyn Boyer have crafted real life stories to make lively application for your children of basic biblical callings for them (and for all of us). These stories describe God's precepts for our children; obedience, patience, honesty, gratefulness, respect, responsibility, initiative, diligence, kindness, self-control, contentment, and deference. They are also illustrative of the scores of opportunities we have in the common stuff of life to take our children to the cross for repentance, and to the throne of grace with confidence, so that they may receive mercy and find grace to help in their time of need. (Hebrews 4:14-16) – Mrs. Margy Tripp of Shepherding the Heart Ministries, pastor's wife, author, conference speaker, educator
Crossroads of Character is part of the Character Concepts Preschool Curriculum from Character Concepts. It is a fun little hardback book that introduces your child to "the cousins." As the cousins work and play together they learn important character qualities. A topic like obedience (which is one of the most important at my house) is introduced and handled simply. You will: learn & memorize a tag line, for example, "I will obey immediately, cheerfully and thoroughly." Then: discover & memorize the scripture verse that supports this quality. (I love, love, love that all the character qualities come straight from Bible!) You will also: read the adventure the cousins experience that demonstrates this character quality in action. My kids love this book and the "real life" pictures (vs. illustrations) are one of the things that my kids find fascinating. – Stephanie Buckner
