Just wanted to share!
Good to hear. Chalk one up for the little guy! LOL
As for it being a favourite book? My nephew 8 sent my dd 10 a letter that in the middle of random stuff about Pokemon, the weather and Disney World wrote " you should buy yourself a Bible and read it." HUH? I have a hard time believeing that there wasn't a parent standing over his shoulder telling him what to write. Same with this parent and the show and tell bible I can imagine.
I have a boys' book club that I've lead for several years. GREAT group! Great boys!One month everyone was to bring their favorite book and tell us about it. Naturally, one boy brought the Bible. He starts out, "This book is about this guy who wants there to be good in the world...".
The rest of the kids are like, "Aaaaaaaaw, Man!" and "NO WAY"! And other nonsupporting comments. So, I'm in the position of supporting this boy's right to offer this book as his favorite.LOLIt was funny in retrospect. I was pretty proud of myself. (grin)
But, if you could have seen this darling kid, having trouble making eye contact, saying, "...and he had these friends who helped him..."I can still see him! He was a doll.
Anyway, was it REALLY his favorite? His brother was also in the group, ready to stand up for his brother, and he says, 'No, really, he does read this book...all of the time!"
It makes me sad to think a child would pick the bible as their favorite book, because it has
Growing up I REALLY liked the stories of Samson and Delilah along with David and Goliath. The way they were told to me wasn't the way the bible told the stories though.
They were written in books which made the stories more appealing and understandable by children.
Also, I was a child who hated stories with unhappy endings so I always threw fits until people told me stories with happy endings. In the versions I was told David became friends with Goliath and Samson and Delilah got married and lived happily ever after.
