In this collection of four real-life stories written for preteens, a compelling storyteller paints a picture of God’s dynamic movement in four foreign cultures, inspiring children to trust that God is weaving a story in their lives as well.
Tales of the Not Forgotten is geared toward young adults, but could easily be read by any adult and definitely would make a great asset to any Sunday School or home school curriculum. Following four different kids, the stories show their story in different parts of the world with different hopes, dreams and questions. What we take for granted they may struggle for or only dream of. It really is an educational eye-opener for youngsters but also they can relate on many levels with them, as well as a up close look at what a mission is and what a missionary does. There is an accompaniment to the book, a DVD that has six kids' mission resources that could be invaluable, paired with the book. There are also wonderful illustrations and pictures that really bring the story to life.
