Character Sketches

Character Sketches

Scriptural character traits are exhibited either positively or negatively in nature stories in these three Character Sketches volumes. Usually, a dramatic animal story presents a moral lesson based on character traits in a manner similar to that of Aesop's fables. 

A unique feature children especially enjoy is the question posed at the beginning of each chapter and each Bible story. The questions provide clues that readers use to see if they can identify the answers before they are given in the book. Then you read the Bible story.

Detailed background and science information with illustrations on both the animal and the Bible story are included. 

These are written on an adult level but work well for reading together. Books are illustrated, and the wildlife illustrations are especially appealing to children.

The material can be used as much as is appropriate for the age levels of our children. For young children, pick and choose from the biological information according to interests and attention spans. 

We began using these with our children when they were 8, 6, and 3. Our three-year-old was too young, but the others understood and learned more than I thought possible.

Any or all of these three Character Sketches volumes from Bill Gothard's ATI are perfect for family Bible study/together time. They are a good investment for your family library.
