Listen, dear friends, to God’s truth, Bend your ears to what I tell you. I’m chewing on the morsel of a proverb; I’ll let you in on the sweet old truths--stories we heard from our fathers, counsel we learned at our mother’s knee. We’re not keeping this to ourselves, We’re passing it along to the next generation--God’s fame and fortune, The marvelous things he has done.
Psalm 78:1-7 MSG
Children need to experience storyworlds through the eyes of characters they can easily identify with.
