    This book is soooo good for Children's Ministry

    Everyone must buy this book that is involved in CM. It doesn't matter if you are new, inexperienced, a verteran, or just involved, this can and will help everyone. I have been doing CM for about 7 years and I read this about a week ago. I lead stories to children every week. This book has so many techniques and ideas that will help me immediatly. From controlling the room, entertaining everyone and applying the story in a way children will learn about the Bible. A small price to pay for large returns.
