Synopsis

The Whoosh Bible 50 Interactive Bible Stories for Children's Groups by Gill Robins

An excitingly different approach to sharing Bible stories with children What is a Whoosh? It's a drama strategy developed by the Royal Shakespeare Company's education unit and popularised in schools, involving every child in physical interaction with the story. Why Whoosh? It enables children to retain details of the narrative more effectively and to discuss the meaning of a story with greater understanding and insight. And it's lots of fun! What's in this book? 50 Bible stories for use with 7-11 year olds, follow-up activities, discussion starters and prayers, and tips for leaders on how to use the whooshing technique. How do I use this book? It can be used with minimal preparation to provide a full Bible story teaching programme or to supplement an existing one, and is suitable for a range of contexts: Sunday school, midweek group, family service, holiday club, Messy Church celebration, or primary school.

Reviews

Wow - I wish I had had a copy of The Whoosh Bible when I was a school teacher. Storytelling is an integral element of the Christian faith and The Whoosh Bible offers a way of interacting with Bible stories that children will love. One of its most endearing features is that it can become a regular practice that will draw children into the text and help them to experience as well as understand their meaning. This is an indispensable resource for both church and school. Trevor Cooling, Professor of Christian Education, Canterbury Christ Church University
