Reviews

From The Diocese of Lincoln Children & Youth Office - November 2008 Described as 'A family resource: stories and activities for the Advent and Christmas season

's Network and are all either past or present Diocesan Children's Officers, and their obvious experience shows in the content. Based upon the bible readings for the revised common lectionary, this book provides material to be used during the week, either at home of in a school or daily club setting, so as to prepare for the Sunday lectionary theme. Aimed to start on the Monday of the week before Advent Sunday and end with The Presentation of Christ in the Temple, each week has a theme; a Bible focus; the story for the week (not a Godly Play type script, rather an outline to base the story on); six 'story cloth activities', which are craft based, using photocopiable templates; six starters to wonder or discuss; a prayer for the week; a specially written song for the week; and some ideas to use during the Sunday worship linking the week together. I like this book; it takes some of the Godly Play processes, and uses them in a home context, children still being invited to wonder and explore. I especially like the idea of building up a collection of story boxes at home, which can be accessed by children at any time, and making the home the focus of the Christian experience which is reinforced on Sunday. Well produced, well thought out piece of kit, highly recommended. Reviewed by Dave Rose'
