Some days my children prove over and over that the longer I’m a parent, the less I know.
There are a couple of certainties I’ve come to know over the last 7 years, though:
- Children ask tough questions. Lots of them. Unceasingly.
- Children love music and learn a great deal from it. Learning is more fun with music!
Recently I had the opportunity to review some CDs from Songs for Saplings.
The music from Songs for Saplings is designed to help you teach your children about God.
- “Songs for Saplings: ABCs” is designed to teach your little ones the word of God as they study their ABCs.
- “Volume One: God and Creation” contains the truths about God and His creation, included: what God did, why he did it, who we are, and how we should think and act.
- “Volume Two: The Fall and Salvation” talks about what went wrong with the world, and what God did to fix it.
- “Volume Three: Christ and His Work” explains why God sent Jesus, what work Jesus did to accomplish our salvation, and what He does still today.
The music is simple but catchy, using a variety of Bible verses to answer tons of God-related questions that children frequently ask. You can hear song samples and download copies of the chords and lyrics on the Songs for Saplings website.
Our children will be receiving this gift of music for Christmas. Each cd has many, many songs, all based on questions kids ask about God. Who made me? Why did God make me? Who is God? Can I see God? I love listening to the sweet children’s voices that help sing the songs, and can’t wait to hear my own kiddos join in! I’m sure there will be much dancing and singing to these cd’s in our future.
