Review - Little Pilgrims in God's World

The following is a homeschool review of "Little Pilgrims in God's World," published by Christian Liberty Press:

This is a softcover workbook designed for Kindergarten students.  It is 156 pages.  It includes photographs and cartoon- type illustrations by Vic Lockman. 

There are 70 lessons including topics such as Selfishness, Bad Government, God's Grace, Working Together, America's Freedom, and many more.

Each lesson begins with a short passage of Scripture.  There is a text for the teacher to read, some questions, and activities.   

There were some illustrations that I think were a little scary and I would not want to show them to my grandchildren.  There was also some wording in the book that I did not think was suitable for small children.  An example includes talking about abortion (even though that term is not directly used.)  I just don't think this is age appropriate, considering this is designed for 5 or 6 year old children.

I had a similar review for the 1st grade version of "History for Little Pilgrims."   

Other Resources

There is a Teacher's Manual which goes along with the workbook.  It is 50 pages long. It includes lesson plans, questions, vocabulary words, activities and instructions. 

There is also an Activity Book that goes with this.  It is 121 pages long.  There is an activity which goes with each lesson in the student workbook. One example is a group of four colorful illustrations and the student is asked to "put an "X" on the picture of someone being selfish." (page 36) There are vocabulary words to study, memory verses, suggestions for further study, and more.

This post is the fifteenth in a series of reviews I am doing using Christian Liberty Press curriculum.  It is the final one in this series.  To start with the first post, please see the introduction:
