The influences of childhood become powerful, lasting impressions. — The type of schoolbooks used certainly aff... more »ects the developing appetites of our children for reading material. We will not instill in them appreciation for godly values by feeding them frivolous nonsense. We hold the Bible to be the highest guide for life and the best source of training for our children. The Bible reveals God and His will. Proverbs 9:10 says, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding." It is important that our children are exposed to truth from the beginning of their learning experience.

It is necessary for the tutor, be he parent ot other teacher, to be firmly rooted in the Word of God and have the power of God's presence in his life. The Bible must be treasured s God's message to mankind. On that conviction this series is built, with the Scriptures as its very substance.
This book is designed as part of a series and will be most effective if so used. Several Reading Workbooks are part of the series.« less
