New Children's Storybook, AT PAPA'S KNEE, is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jul 5, 2016

In the Neighborhood (ISBN: 978-1-944023-06-5) the second book in the 'At Papa's Knee' children's series, is based on the life and writings of the Rev. L.A. Meade family. The tales are woven in a homey farm setting with the escapades and adventures of The Children serving as the basis for Biblically-based life-lessons. As The Children turn to Papa in their difficulties, his kindly advice is encapsulated in a memorable story which is easy for children to remember and apply to their everyday experience. Families will appreciate the: · 'Check Out What God Says' section, with Scripture applicable to the lesson · 'Talk About It' discussion questions for the whole family · 'Live It Out' ideas for life application · 'Pray About It' prayer to end the time · Wide possibilities for use - these stories are excellent complements to lesson time at Sunday School, Christian schools, camp, or VBS. · Fun illustrations - both line drawings and rich color illustrations - bring the stories to life. · The virtues, character qualities, manners, and scriptural principles made memorable through the antics and exploits of the Meade family. The character of Papa is based on the Rev. L.A. Meade, the grandfather of the authors, and his wise, gentle guidance during their childhood. From his inspirational words, preserved in his own hand, and from the family's own experiences and stories, his granddaughters have found inspiration for children's stories that comfort and challenge, bringing laughter and joy into family teaching time. Cara Shelton, co-author of the At Papa's Knee series, commented, 'These tales are designed as springboards for family discussions. My sister and I had the enormous blessing of growing up with the real, live, original Papa Meade. His steady, faithful influence - always loving, always with a sense of humor - was a huge positive force on our lives and faith, and we hope to share that with our readers.'

The size of the endeavor is both literal and figurative, for MSMT's Evita succeeds not only in its grand sweep, but also in the magnitude of its intangible assets - unsparing honesty, intensity, and emotional depth.
