    Contains clever ideas!

    My husband and I present weekly children's sermons in church. We have many online and print resources to pull from, but this book is our favorite! There's always a clever, but simple, idea for the week's topic. Many lessons are object-oriented, many include movement and interaction, all are fun and easy to do, and each has a great Bible-based lesson.
