Google Earth in the Homeschool
Homeschool mom, are you looking for a Scriptural devotional to use with your children in the morning? The Story of Jesus for Kids tells about Jesus from His conception to His time on earth after the resurrection.
The chapters in this book are taken from actual Scriptures in the New International Reader's Version so the text is an easy read for kids or for read alouds. The chapters are not in "chapter and verse." They are from all four gospels in "one seamless narrative" (says the back of the book).
There are three things that I really like about this book for your homeschool:
1. It's about Jesus! You can't go wrong when your focus is on Him.
2. The chapters are taken from all four gospels. I love that!
3. There are discussion questions at the end of each chapter.
This is a short, small book. It's just right for a change of pace in your regular devotions or Bible teachings. It is written for ages 9-12 but can easily be adapted for younger and older kids. (Homeschool moms are good at doing that!)
There is nothing that you will teach your kids that is more powerful than Jesus. They can learn about everything under the sun but they must grasp the power of the gospel, Jesus Christ. That is the teaching that will ultimately change their lives and the lives around them.

The Story by Zondervan
I was given The Story of Jesus for Kids by Zondervan for review. All opinions are my own.
Have you ever asked your kids what would they like to learn about?
Of course, they have to learn to read.
Of course, they have to learn arithmetic.
Of course, they have to learn the basics of education.
But, is there a particular subject or topic that they crave? A topic that they'd absolutely LOVE to learn about?
Why not let them?
It's quite possible that the thing they want to learn about the most, very well may be the thing that drives them later in life. It may even be the thing that God has called them to... the very way He has specially wired them.
So, what do your kids want to learn?
