I like having a variety of teaching materials on hand for biblical character instruction in our home. One of the resources I rely on for such curriculum is Character Concepts (formerly The Learning Parent) by Rick and Marilyn Boyer.
We have been using Character Trails in our home for quite some time now. Although it was written for ages 6-9, we easily adapt it for our four kids, ages 0-5. Each of the character traits in the book has a relevant Bible story, memory verse, a “real-life” story often starring the Boyer family, and a story from American history.
Sometimes we use Character Trails as a daily devotion sort of reading. Other times, such as for our Attentiveness unit, we use the materials to help build a focused study on a character trait that needs some attention in our home. The kids especially enjoy hearing the real-life stories of other kids as well as using the coloring sheets that you can download to go with the book.
We have really enjoyed the Character Trails books and I’m sure we’ll be buying more of the materials from Character Concepts at our upcoming homeschool convention. (We have their felt Busy Bible as well and the kids love it!)
Character Concepts has generously offered given me an extra copy of their Character Trails book, along with the associated flash cards, to bless a Proverbial Homemaker reader with!
Enter here for a chance to win the book and flash cards. The winner will be chosen on June 4th and notified. The winner has 48 hours to claim their prize before another winner is chosen. U.S. Residents only.
Disclosure: I was provided with a free copy of Character Trails in order to give my own personal opinions on it. The opinions I have given are mine and may differ from others but were not influenced by the company or the free product provided.
