My dear, talented friend has been keeping a secret for many months: she’s been writing and illustrating a workbook and website, Biblical Greek 4 Kids!
Well, her secret is out and so are her new books! Today, I received our first copy and Hana Kate and I were so excited to look over it! Hana Kate loved the pictures of the animals :), and I loved the fact that it is a great book for teaching Biblical Greek to preschoolers (and beyond)! And she did learn a couple of Greek letters. She really likes the ones with the -eta endings. 🙂 This is the first book I’ve seen like this, though there are several other curricula for teaching Koine Greek to young children. But with this, you can begin with preschoolers. You also don’t need a background in Greek to teach it; you can learn right along with your child.
From the time I knew Koine Greek existed, I’ve wanted to learn it. Well, that opportunity did not come until I was in college (under an excellent teacher!), but that brief exposure made me realize that it was something I want my children to learn much sooner than I did. I wanted to make some worksheets and things for teaching my own children, but now I don’t have to because my friend has already done so for me (and done so much better than I ever envisioned). (If you know me in real life, you’d better check this out to find which friend of mine wrote these! :))
Right now, you can also enter to win the book over at the Biblical Greek 4 Kids blog, here. It’s going through Saturday, November 6, when the winner will be chosen.
In full disclosure, I was not asked to review this product; I even asked my friend if it was okay if I shared it. I liked it that much! But she did give me a book to review! 🙂 .
