    Growing up under typical Sunday school fare, many children view

    Growing up under typical Sunday school fare, many children view the Bible as a bunch of disjointed stories with moral rules to obey. The aim of A Is for Adam is to introduce children to the theme of Scripture—the gospel—by displaying it from the very first book of the Bible. The historical account of Genesis explains how God created the world; how man is created in the image of God; how sin came into the world, bringing suffering and death; and how God promised to send a Savior, the only way of salvation.

    Published by Master Books of New Leaf Publishing, this spiral flip-top book is designed so that the child can see the picture and rhyme, while the parent can view the teacher’s guide with a summary, biblical principles, discussion points, activity ideas, review questions, and more. The 26 lessons cover each letter of the alphabet. With the additional teacher’s resources at the end, the book is 77 pages.

    Although likely not designed for such a young age, my one-year-old daughter loves this book with its colorful drawings and catchy rhymes. Here is an example:

    “M is for Moan, what a mess sin did make.
    Thorns, thistles and death, and cursed ground for man’s sake.
    God had to judge sin. He’s so holy and pure,
    But God is so good, He provided a cure.”

    Don’t be surprised if you quickly memorize all the letter rhymes just through regular reading. My daughter likes to turn the pages, so the book has had some wear and tear, but it’s still holding up with some tape jobs. Covering Genesis 1–11, this book begins with the creation and Fall of man, continues with Noah’s Ark, and ends with the Tower of Babel and a flash forward to the Consummation of history.

    “Z is for Zip, so quick it will be,
    When Jesus comes back for you and for me.
    If our name is found in the ‘Lamb’s Book of Life,’
    We’ll sure live forever in a place with no strife.”

    **I received a complimentary copy of this course from the publisher for the purpose of my impartial review.**

    Great Book for Teaching Creation (and how it connects to the end) to Kids!

    A Is for Adam, by Ken and Mally Ham, is a book that we have owned for a few years because it was recommended by the 1000 Good Books list that I enjoy, but I recently discovered that Master Books came out with a new version complete with talking points, extra activities, etc. to go with each page. The text of the book is essentially the same, they have just added these extra things to make it super friendly for teaching your children. I was very excited when I got the chance to review this new edition courtesy of New Leaf Publishing Group. A is for Adam is essentially a poem broken down into 26 parts (one for each letter of the alphabet) that takes the reader from the creation of Adam to the return of Christ. It is quite detailed describing the first few chapters of Genesis, hits some points in the rest of Genesis and then zooms right to Christ. The theology is good, teaching that a sacrifice is needed for our sin and that sacrifice is Christ! What is neat about this book is that it sits up like a triangle so your child can look at the picture and text while you look at the other side which has the text again along with all the extras. Each page has a short, simple commentary on the stanza, sentences for your child to repeat (for better Biblical understanding), questions to ask you child (for comprehension), a key point for your child to remember, other suggested activities to do with your child, and then a quick review. This book is generally geared for children, but what is neat is that they add a section at the back that gives a more detailed commentary on each of the pages from the beginning, connecting them to other parts of the Bible where appropriate. This enables you to use this with all of your children at once, which any homeschool mom can appreciate! This book could definitely serve as a Bible curriculum for your homeschool if you are teaching the first parts of the Bible and want to make sure that you show how the beginning is related to the end and that Christ is the thread that weaves it all together! I definitely recommend this book, and encourage you to check it out if you are looking for something to aid in teaching this part of the Bible to you children.

    Highly recommend to teach young children ABC's and the Gospel in Genesis

    Christian parents need to build a library for their children complete with secular stories but also books that teach the child of God, Christ, and eternity. Ken Ham has certainly been an advocate of strong, Christian literature that teaches the truth in Genesis and the truth in our Bible.

    I received a beautiful, yet complete with delightful illustrations, flip book that takes the parent and child through the alphabet beginning with "A is for Adam." The book has cute rhyme that helps to grab his/her attention and engage the mind for solid memory of the information. Example:

    J is for Jovial, as Satan must have been,
    The Devil was gleeful with all he had seen.
    He was able to trick poor Eve with a lie,
    "Obey all my words, and you'll surely not die."

    and then after that dire episode.....

    M is for Moan, what a mess sin did make,
    Thorns, thistles and death, and cursed ground for man's sake.
    God had to judge sin. He's so holy and pure,
    But God is so good, He provided a cure.

    For the Parent: Each page has another correlated page in the back of the book with Overview, Directed Discussion, Core Truth Takeaway, and Quick Review to aid in the instruction of the child.

    I highly recommend this book for homeschools, Christian Schools, and private homes.

    Bio: Ken Ham is the founder and executive director of Answers in Genesis in the USA and one of the most sought-after Christian speakers in North America. Ken is the author or co-author of many books, including The Lie: Evolution, The Genesis Solution, Genesis and the Decay of the Nations, What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs?, A is for Adam, D is for Dinosaur, Creation Evangelism for the New Millennium (now called Why Won't They Listen?), and One Blood: The Biblical Answer to Racism. He is heard daily on the radio program, “Answers...with Ken Ham,” on more than 300 stations worldwide. Ken is also featured in various videos including the series, “Answers in Genesis with Dr. Gary Parker,” and the 12-part series of 28-minute videos, “Answers...with Ken Ham.” Ken's teaching is clear, true to the Bible, engaging, and challenging. Many have found salvation and others have been encouraged and equipped to reach others with the gospel through Ken's ministry.

    I received a complimentary review copy of "A is for Adam" from New Leaf Publishing Group for Master Books and was not required to render a favorable review.
