Our church has been using these lessons this summer as a 6-week series for our 3-year-olds through Kindergarteners. It breaks the book into small chunks, so the kids really focus on each concept (perfect creation/the fall/separation from God/redemption in Christ/resurrection/new perfect creation). Kids hear separate Bible stories all the time, but this is a nice sweeping arc of the Gospel approach that works well for our smaller summer attendance. Good craft ideas and ways to make the read-aloud interactive for kids. I wish there was more curriculum like this!

This is a very comprehensive resource. I like that it is divided into age groups. We are using the youngest age group. It is a lovely way to teach from creation to the. Cross.

“Terrific resource”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Sunday School Lessons')

Our church adapted this curriculum for a three-night Vacation Bible School and it worked great. The curriculum itself adapts the storybook so well, telling the big picture of the gospel through the lens of God's desire to dwell with his people. This curriculum offers great ideas for interactive teaching, crafts, and games as well. Highly recommend!
