The Ten Commandments for Little Ones

Allia Zobel Nolan & Janet Samuel

The Ten Commandments serve as the building blocks for the Christian life, so it’s never too soon to begin teaching them to young children. Easy–to–understand language, engaging illustrations, and clear descriptions let little ones hide God’s rules in their own hearts for a lifetime of living the right way.

Children will draw closer to God and grow good relationships with family and friends as they learn God’s Top Ten rules, including “Worship God—not things” and “Be good to your parents, obey them, and show them your love.” They’ll dig a little deeper to discover why God made these rules and how they can best follow them.

A fun quiz at the end of the book lets readers see how much they’ve learned and gives grown–ups an opportunity to talk about God’s great love for everyone and His expectations for our words and actions. A perfect way for parents, homeschoolers, teachers, grandparents, and friends to introduce the Ten Commandments to God’s beloved children.

A Word from the Author

"The Ten Commandments are more than a list of do’s and don’ts. They are a blueprint for how we live our lives in a way that’s pleasing to God. That’s why this book not only introduces small ones to the rules themselves, but also encourages them to talk about what the Commandments mean and how they apply in their young world, and to think about making the kind of choices that will keep them closer to God.”

“What I Like: Everything! Nolan does a superb job making the Ten Commandments understandable and applicable to children. This is the best picture book I've read on this topic, and I can't recommend it highly enough. The illustrations by Janet Samuel are a terrific addition to the book, showing children of many ethnicities, plus Bible characters, in colorful, cute drawings.”
Christian Children’s Book Review

The Ten Commandments for Little Ones by Allia Zobel Nolan is a kid-friendly look at the Ten Commandments with aged-appropriate terms and explanations so children will understand how to apply them in their little lives! I like how Nolan added questions at the end of the book under the ‘Digging Deeper’ section so you can discuss with your children what they’ve learned.”
