Hanging on Every Word PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Hanging on Every Word free pdf This inspiring resource contains 48 of the world's greatest stories dramatically retold for reading aloud with children aged 5-11. They vary in length and topic, but all contain important Christian truths. There are a few Bible stories, but most are taken from classic literature or from folk tales. Drawing on the rich imaginations of master storytellers throughout the ages author Mark Griffiths brings their creations vividly to life. He includes three delightful tales from Oscar Wilde. His retelling of the "Russian Shoemaker" by Leo Tolstoy is enchanting and a must read for Christmas. There are other more traditional stories from around the world, such as Antonio the Juggler from Italy and the tragic tale of Gelert from Wales. Some of the stories are true - the story of Gladys Aylward who rescued children in China and the delightful tale of how Amy Carmichael prayed for blue eyes - others tell of wondrous adventure such as Ruth Sanderson's "The Enchanted Wood" and the delightful "Hugs and Kisses" contest. There are many, many more. This is a charming book that will be enjoyed time and again. It will hold the attention of both children and adults and will lead to fruitful discussions of bigger themes such as truth, courage and identity.
