When it comes to church, kids sometimes think and say the darnedest things. The Tales from the Back Pew series takes a light-hearted look at some of the misconceptions our children may have about church.

In Preacher Creature Strikes on Sunday, the main character is wondering if church will be anything like the stories he's heard. There's obvious cause for concern when you consider the fact that you may get drafted into the service, be forced to sit on smelly benches called pews, and deal with the

This is a very short book that has lots of little colorful graphics. It is for young kids and goes over some of the ideas kids have come up with through the years of what church is like. I got it to read and show to my daughter who is 4 and she seemed to like the pictures really well. It was cute and fun.

This book has very humorous illustrations of church service. It has a great interpretation from a kid's point of view. I would recommend this book for those with a vivid imaging action and keen sense of humor. This is overall an entertaining book. It's an easy read.

I think you have to be a Christian to laugh at some of the jokes. If a child had not been to church, I don't think they would understand it.

We'll be teaching 1st and 2nd grade Sunday School this fall, so I bought this whole set. I think it's going to be great to use with the kids.
Cute book with plenty of chuckles like calling the preacher "The Sermonator" and saying that they must really like nuts because people are always saying "Almonds."
