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.
