Authors: Elyse Fitzpatrick & Jessica Thompson

ISBN #: 0764211870
Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson wrote this book with the goal of helping every parent answer some of the tough questions children could ask. The range of questions the authors’ explore are death, sin, divorce, and the explanation of difficult Bible stories. What I found helpful is that the explanations were divided by age groups. The authors wrote helpful scripts designed to aid parents explain these topics to children.
In my opinion, I think this book can be really helpful for parents. I found the scripts used appropriate language for each stage of child development and serves as a great example on how to conduct these types of conversations with children. I also find that this book is also very practical and relevant for types of questions children ask today.
