The Lamb - Picture book(Spanish)
"El Cordero" is the Spanish edition of "The Lamb."
The following is the description from the English edition.
How do we explain the gospel to children in a way that they can understand? How do we explain their need for a Saviour without watering down the details? How can we hold their attention long enough to explain what the Bible is all about? How can we be accurate yet sensitive to the fact that they need simpler explanations?
“The Lamb” is a book written for children five to ten years of age. Engaging children with its full-colour illustrations, this picture book takes children on a journey through the heart of the Bible’s message. Starting with the creation of the universe, the book explains key biblical concepts: Who is God? What is God like? What is sin? Where did evil come from? Why do we need a Saviour? The book concludes with a clear explanation of the identity of Jesus and his amazing provision as our Saviour.
The book makes a clear link between Jesus and the Old Testament sacrificial lamb. Issues like death are dealt with in an honest, straightforward manner. The graphic details surrounding the story of salvation are handled sensitively but not watered down. At the end, children will have an explanation of who God is and what he did for mankind on the cross. It is a message of hope that every child should hear.

My name is CJ and for the last two years I have been teaching Children’s Bible classes in Baja California. I go out once a week to the same group of children. In a week, I go to three different areas. For our classes we announce with a loud speaker through the streets surrounding the class area and invite all of the children. From toddlers to upper elementary, the kids run to meet at the blue tarp set up in our host’s backyard At the beginning of our class (we) sing action and praise songs. We then after the verse we have a Bible story and application to go along with that verse. As you can imagine, I have had the opportunity to use many curriculums and materials. I want to let you know how thankful I am for the book El Cordero (THE LAMB in Spanish) I used the book over a course of eight weeks. Most weeks I used just one chapter, but where it was applicable I combined chapters. The book captivated it’s audience! The beautiful illustrations, the audio CD, and the memory verses caught the kids attention. As a teacher, I really appreciated the way that each chapter summed up what had happened in those prior. In my classes I chose one key verse from those that were laid out in footnotes alongside each chapter. The kids memorized these and we used them as a review. Many kids who have grown up in the church know the story of Jesus’ birth, life, death and resurrection backward and forward. They know all of the right answer, yet don’t understand why it was that Jesus took sin upon himself, and how his death bought our life. This book did a very good job of explaining just that. The kids were able to understand the need of Jesus’ sacrifice. I recommend this book to any teacher to use a tool for chronological teaching of the Bible. May God bless you!
