The verses have been selected by a group of religious educators and take into consideration the four year olds' limited vocabulary, the relative simplicity of concept, and the possibility of showing -- in pictures -- familiar child activities that lend significance to the text. But frankly it is of questionable value to present a small child with a segment of a sentence and expect emotional response. Possibly the chief value lies in starting to build a sense of familiarity at this age level. The text is taken from the King James version and the American Standard version of the Revised Bible.
