“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”— Dr. Seuss, “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!”
As we all know, Reading is essential in bringing life into our children but also to children’s ministry. Its another way to communicate through pages of colour and excitement. Reading to a child demonstrates fluency of language and expressions of thought.
It shows a delight in their facial expressions when reading. that captures hearts especially when reading stories from the bible. Take every opportunity to demonstrate that you love to read shows value to the story and wanting children to be apart of that. Reading does really communicate joy and emotion.
The obvious parallels between biblical figures and our children are vivid reminders of the real-time relevance of the Bible. For example, in “The Hide-and-Seek Prince,” Joash becomes king when he is seven years old. Today, some first graders have significant family responsibilities. Joash’s grandmother was a murderer; today, every seven-year-old knows how to shelter in place. Sharing a Hear Me Read story like Joash allows children and leaders to bond more deeply to each other and God’s Word.
