How old are they?Plgw2013 wrote:We are only on week three and my kids all say they would pretty much rather me read anything else. Is there a purpose behind Kingdom Tales? Will we be missing out if we skip it? Has anyone else experienced this? I'm wondering if it gets better. Everything else in the MFW curriculum seems wonderful so far.
I pre-read this book and love it. I can see though how not all children would like it; especially the younger set. It is very imaginative with lots of allegory. I honestly don't think my 6 year old would understand it. We are starting ECC in Sept. I know my 10 will love it (he has previewed it some), I'm going to try it with my 8 and I am not certain if he will like it at his age: maybe. I don't think any of my kids would have liked it at 6 or 7 and maybe even 8 due to a lack in understanding what is really going on. If it helps any the first chapter, or first few chapters, was my least favorite part in pre reading it.
I hope someone will chime in who has already read it to their children.
