Tales of the Not Forgotten ~ Litfuse Blog Tour with review and giveaway

Follow these real-life stories as they take you on a journey to faraway lands and unknown faces. Travel through their challenges and see the hand of the great Storyweaver writing endings you’d never imagine!

Joel dares to ask for what he can’t have. Seraphina sacrifices what she can’t afford to give. Ibrahim looks for an answer buried out of reach. Christiana, saved by a mission, searches for her own.

These are the tales of the ones the world doesn’t see . . . the tales of the not forgotten.

In this collection of four real-life stories written for preteens, a compelling storyteller paints a picture of God’s dynamic movement in four foreign cultures, inspiring children to trust that God is weaving a story in their lives as well.

This resource will shrink the macro picture down to approachable, individual stories of real children and teach about fundamental survival issues. The stories address some of the challenging questions that kids have and weave God's promises to orphans into each one.

The Tales of the Not Forgotten Leader’s Guide is a 6-session kids' missions resource (sold separately) that walks adults through an easy-to-follow guide for making the abstract real and for designing an action plan to help others.

Preteens will be challenged to answer the questions:
How do I pray? What can I give? Where can I go? Who will I serve?

My thoughts...

What is more important than showing the love of Jesus to others? Tales of the Not Forgotten is a great tool for teaching children about that love and compassion. Through the stories of four children, Beth shows readers the challenges these children face every day just to live. This is a wonderful way to teach your children about missions and how they can serve.

Heartbreaking and yet heartwarming, Beth introduces us to Joel in Mexico, Seraphina in Haiti, Ibrahim in Nigeria, and Christiana in India, children in need of the basic necessities of life and in need of the hope we have in Jesus Christ.

The reading level is age 8 and up and it is an easy read with attention grabbing graphics and photos. You'll find statistics and scripture throughout. The book has 6 lessons and a companion Leader's Guide on CD-rom. A very inspiring book, I highly recommend it. Tales of the Not Forgotten gets 5 out of 5 stars from me.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher through Litfuse in exchange for an honest review.
