“A Lonely Man” is the fourteenth of sixteen books in “The Jesus Series” for 4-5 year olds to read themselves. Books 9-16 tell what Jesus came to do based on Isaiah 61:1-2 and Luke 4:16-21. This book tells us about Jesus and a lonely man.
There are various ways for adults to help a child reading this book.
One way is to help the child memorise the selected Bible verse and its reference:
“You, God, find families for those who are lonely.” Psalm 68, verse 6
On each page of the book there is a part for an adult to read (in small print) along with a sentence printed in larger writing for a child to read. It is recommended that the adult reads their part first and then the child so that a shared reading experience is developed.
Book 14, “A Lonely Man”, introduces the letter sound S and T, and offers help with writing the letter, as well as giving suggested activities, reading tips, charts to aid recall, and sight vocabulary words that children need to read the book.
