Newly released from Master Books
This Multipurpose Family Book is stunning in it's illustrations of Biblical Stories for youngsters.
Utilizing the Alphabet to relate easily to children, each story takes a letter and creates a rhyme.
Each letter has a simple rhyme beginning with Adam and ending with "Z is for Zip, so quick it will be, when Jesus comes back for you and for me".
Fully incorporating the Bible and teaching youngsters about the truths from a Biblical perspective.
Each letters lessons in
Well as with most books and resources from Master Books this one is the same – it’s excellent and a must have for your home library. This is an alphabet book, but unlike other alphabet books, it uses God’s Word from Creation to the time when Believers are brought into their Heavenly homes. Each letter has a simply rhyme to go along with the Biblical accounts of history such as “D is for Dinosaur, dodo and deer; Like all of the animals, no man did they fear. But even though all was in true harmon ...more
There is nothing better to get a preschooler or kindergartner's attention than a big colorful flip board! I was so excited when I saw A is for Adam! It is a homeschooler's dream! This colorful BIG flip board book covers the alphabet from A to Z using the book of Genesis to correlate a story to each letter. Of course it begins with Adam and it goes all the way through "Z is for Zip, so quick will it be, When Jesus comes back for you and for me." Each letter is given a full size colorful illustrat ...more

Christian parents need to build a library for their children complete with secular stories but also books that teach the child of God, Christ, and eternity. Ken Ham has certainly been an advocate of strong, Christian literature that teaches the truth in Genesis and the truth in our Bible.

I received a beautiful, yet complete with delightful illustrations, flip book that takes the parent and child through the alphabet beginning with "A is for Adam." The book has cute rhyme that helps to grab his/
A is for Adam
By Ken & Mally Ham

Calling all home school moms, Sunday school teachers, Children’s Church Directors & VBS workers—the new A is for Adam flip book is awesome! Years ago when I needed something like this for my Children’s Church class I had my husband (who is an artist) draw it off on a large flip drawing pad. That worked but it wasn’t very durable. Now we have access to this wonderful resource that is made to last and be durable as well as very user friendly.

What a neat resource! This book A is for Adam, is a series of rhymes taking you from (obviously) “A” is for “Adam” all the way to “Z” is for “Zip” while portraying the gospel in a simple, colorful, and child-friendly manner. Each verse has it's own color illustration with an entire page of discussion points, questions, an
A whole new twist to the ABCs!

A is for Adam by Ken & Mally Ham quite creatively facilitates a parent (or grandparent) helping a child learn the gospel in a way that they can actually comprehend it.

I must say, I am quite impressed with how well my six-year-old son grasps and even teaches back to me the truth of why Jesus had to come and die in our place---many thanks to this well-formatted book.

Ken and Mally Ham have structured this book to tell the true Gospel as it is initiated in the book

A is for Adam is not just a very vibrant and imaginative picture book. Nor is it just a neat and fully entertaining coloring book. It is both of these things plus with a section called "commentary for parents" it is also practically a curriculum on it's own with pictures and identical pages to color while learning the Bible. Each pages is a simple and interesting rhyme to go with each picture and story. Then in the commentary you have paragraphs that help break things down and explain the ultima ...more
I loved the idea of this book a little more than the execution of it. The illustrations seemed a little cartoon-y for the subject also. While it seems Biblically accurate, it seems to point to controversy concerning evolution that doesn't seem to make sense in a kid's book to me. There are some difficult words- ghastly, jovial, i.e.- that seemed above my 5 yr old's head, but it seems to be aimed older than that anyway. Probably not going to use it for preschoolers at MOPS, although maybe it will ...more
Easy rhymes, colorful illustrations, all truth, longtime favorite. My sister and I once had this entire book memorized. Children enjoy it and get grounded in the truth of our history and God's work.

Recommends it for: Children and Parents to read to Children
Great book. I like it even better than D is for Dinosaurs. John really enjoys naming the animals. They put b&w pages at the end as well for coloring.
The gospel from Genesis--I like the big picture it gives kids. It doesn't sugar coat things. My kids like the dinosaurs.
