Product Description:

Little Pilgrim's Progress maintains all the allegorical messages, characters and places of the original. Helen Taylor wanted a younger audience (elementary and middle school children) to profit from the allegory as much as countless generations of "grown-up" Christians had before them. Accordingly, the language and vocabulary is more accessible and the main character is a young boy rather than a man. See more details on the corresponding Adventure Guide, which examines everything from literary elements to biblical truths found in the book.

Immerse your family in the adventures of Christian and Christiana as they make their way to the Celestial City. This little study guide is designed to help you make a well-loved, across-the-centuries favorite into a family favorite. Little Pilgrim's Progress, an adaptation of John Bunyan's classic, Pilgrim's Progress, maintains all the allegorical messages, characters and places of the original. Helen Taylor wanted a younger audience (elementary and middle school children) to profit from the allegory as much as countless generations of "grown-up" Christians had before them. Accordingly, the language and vocabulary is more accessible and the main character is a young boy rather than a man.

The Study Guide - or Adventure Guide as the author, a homeschooling mom of five boys, prefers to call it - provides vocabulary work, recall and digging deeper types of questions, allegorical exploration, literature elements coverage, and Bible applications with an emphasis on character development. A key element of this latter is the on-going development of a Character Chart where the student keeps an on-going record of story characters who have had a positive influence and those who have had a negative influence on Christian's pilgrimage. The Guide is designed as a consumable (you'll want one for each family member) with a brief (but very helpful) Leader's Guide in the back followed by an Answer Key. The Leader's Guide contributes a list of interesting additional book activities (ie. mapping Christian's journey, art projects, verse memorization, and dioramas - to name a few). 79 pgs. pb ~ Janice

Wonderful outloud book for my kids, and edifying for me as well. I have struggled to read the original. This one brings the story with such sweet truths. One of my favorites.

You know you have found a literary gem when the read-aloud ends and a child picks it up to read AGAIN! This well-written adaptation of John Bunyan's classic "Pilgrim's Progress" engaged all of our children ages two to twelve often interrupting our "normal" day for just one more chapter Having never read the original Helen Taylor's rewrite for younger students led us on an unexpected spiritual journey We were challenged at every turn of the page as Christian and later Christiana encountered the Slough of Despond the Hill of Difficulty the lions before the Castle Beautiful the Dark Valley and Vanity Fair on the King's Way to the Celestial City Relating to characters whose names defined their character brought about many discussions concerning our relationships with others We too depend on the Faithfuls Hopefuls and the Great Hearts on our journey Christian's thoughts are woven into the story and provide a glimpse into our own hearts revealing at times sinful patterns but also reassurances from the King giving us courage to press on The application of Biblical truth was clear especially with Little Pilgrim's Progress study guide by Chris Roe in hand During the read-aloud and long after its ending one of my children or I would say "that's just like what Christian faced" His journey is so memorable and applicable to our own Personally my resolve to continue on the King's way became stronger while reading about a Little Pilgrim's Progress We intend to read this again maybe even mapping Christian's journey or making a game to match places and characters he met Understandably this book has sold over half million copies It's worth is inestimable

My Children (10 8 and 5) LOVED this book I read the book out loud to them each night and they would beg for "one more chapter" The story follows Bunyan's classic in a version children can understand The situations Little Christian and Christiana find themselves facing are applicable to what Christians face everyday This book brought about great discussions with my children and made me think as well The chapters are short so you could read one chapter in 10 minutes I HIGHLY recommend this book The study guide that goes with the book is useful for encouraging discussions
