In the midst of our busy lives, it can sometimes seem convenient to relegate the teaching of scripture, prayer, and worship to the professionals at church. While that may be the easy way out, as parents we must be mindful of God's word, which exhorts us to minister to and teach their own children (see Deut. 4:9; 11:9). Expanding on this theme, Our Home is like a Little Church introduces preschool age children to the doctrine of the home as a little church. In addition, it serves as a gentle reminder to parents that the spiritual disciplines present in the church on Sunday should also be present in their little church throughout the rest of the week.
Touching on the topics of prayer, Bible reading, and worship, Our Home is like a Little Church contrasts church and home side by side, showing how these spiritual disciplines can and should be present in both our churches and our homes (i.e. little church). The artwork looks like it could have been drawn by a child and is perfect for engaging the intended preschool audience. I especially enjoyed the rhyming throughout the text, which gave it a good rhythm and made it a lot of fun to read. This book was a fast favorite amongst my youngest children and we have enjoyed it many times. I highly recommend this book and give it an overall rating of 5 stars.
