This delightful collection tells Bible stories in creative, interactive ways that will engage anyone from the toddlers through adulthood. They are a great way to add life to classes or retreat-like experiences, and include stories about creation, Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Moes, Jesus John the Baptist, Peter, the Good Samaritan, the Prodigal Son, the woman at the well, the apostle Paul, and many, many more. These playful stories involve the learner in the process and ensure that the Bible story is understood an internalized.
Phyllis Vos Wezeman utilizes a variety of storytelling techniques:
Action stories include gestures and movements to interpret each line.
Echo stories are initiated by a leader, with the last phrase of each sentence repeated by all participants.
Rhythm stories are rhyming verses that can be accompanied by a clapping pattern.
Syllable stories are organized into lines of two syllables each, and can be accompanied by a quick, catchy thigh slapping and snapping.
Participants will love these stories and so will you as a leader!
