Teaching Sunday School to young children

Whether you’re quaking in your boots about to face your first class of four-year-olds, or a battle-hardened veteran able to confidently perform the actions to dozens of children’s songs, this is the book you’ve been waiting for.

Their God is so Big is a unique and indispensable guide to teaching Sunday School to young children (up to the age of eight). It covers everything from understanding the kind of person you should be as a teacher to comprehending the rapidly changing stages through which children pass. Author Stephanie Carmichael offers a simple, practical method for preparing and delivering effective Bible-based lessons, as well as reams of suggestions, ideas and resources to help you handle everything you might face as a teacher. There’s also plenty of advice and information on the mechanics of organising and running a Sunday School.
