More “Learn to Read” Books Released
One of the main reasons Apologetics Press exists is to aid young people. Perhaps more than ever before in American culture, children are coping with numerous cultural forces that threaten their faith. Parents can easily find themselves unprepared and ill-equipped to deal with the sophistication of some of these challenges. God has blessed the staff at A.P. with the time and resources to meet these challenges. Our desire is to provide parents and their children with the necessary tools to deflect the darts of Satan (Ephesians 6:16).
The sinister forces that vie for our children’s allegiance are legion. They include the pervasive secularism that holds American culture in its grip, the massive propaganda machine of evolution, and the sexual anarchy that confronts society on every hand. We at A.P. are endeavoring to address each of these sinister ploys by developing materials that will give kids the truth. They deserve to have answers to their questions—God’s answers and God’s views.
We believe that the time to provide our children with these answers is at the very beginning of their lives on Earth. We believe that infants need to be exposed to God as Creator (hence, our Creation Cards). We believe that toddlers need to know Who made the dinosaurs (hence, our Dinosaur Coloring Book). We believe that as 3-6 year olds are becoming acquainted with books and are learning to read, they need simultaneous reinforcement of biblical principles pertaining to God and His creation (hence, our “Learn to Read” books). As children grow and expand their minds as well as their ability to assimilate critical concepts, they need additional spiritual reinforcement and teaching (hence, our “Early Reader” books). And we most certainly recognize the extreme importance of providing for middle school, high school, and college-age young people the books, articles, and tracts that will stabilize their knowledge of God as Creator. By God’s grace, effective materials have been produced for all these stages of growth.
That is why we are most happy to announce the release of three more volumes in the “Learn to Read” series: Fish, Flies, and Fleas, Ducks, Bucks, and Woodchucks, and Goose, Moose, and Mongoose. Rather than teaching a child how to read using a secular book that omits God from the process, these books accomplish the academic objective (i.e., teach a child how to read) while at the same time nurturing the child’s spirit with the reality of God and His role in the Universe. Here are the stated objectives of the “Learn to Read” series:
To introduce children to God as Creator.
To introduce children to the animal kingdom.
To introduce children to simple sentence structure.
To introduce children to rhyme.
To introduce children to exclamation and question.
By use of repetition, to reinforce concepts while building vocabulary.
May I urge you to give some thought to those in your acquaintance who have children or grandchildren who would profit from these books, and apprise them of their availability? Together we are sowing seed for eternity.
