Loosely based on biblical narrative found in 2 Samuel 12:1–9, the goal in Nathan's Story is to provide young children with a clear understanding of what it means to love one's neighbor, as well as teach them about respecting the property of others. More than ever, children need to be exposed to uplifting literature that can help them to develop into compassionate and caring servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. This book was written with that goal in mind.
This story is designed to be read to young children. Teaching suggestions for each chapter are included at the end of the book.

This book is a good example for young children. It teaches a moral. It opens the communication door for the children to ask many questions.
Beautifully written story to teach young children about the sin of coveting
LOVE this book! I used this with my preschooler and kindergartner. The beautiful illustrations held my children's attention on every page. The writing is well-suited for a wide range of ages - simple enough for my preschooler to understand yet it captivated even my older children's attention. I especially appreciated the teaching suggestions at the end of the book which provide scripture readings to go along with each chapter. There are also helpful insights on how parents can teach their children to understand these passages. Buy this book - you won't be disappointed!
Not for preschool
This is a little too over the heads of preschoolers-would be better for kindergarten level.
