Description
 

Hymns for Kids teaches children about worship music, concentrating on hymns. Along the way, they learn many key musical concepts as they learn how to "read" a hymn. Appropriate for beginner piano students, as a unit study for homeschoolers, or just for introducing the study of hymns, Hymns for Kids is written with 8 to 12-year olds in mind (though it is appropriate for younger, and older, audiences).

Hymns for Kids has four sections: an overview of hymns; the "technical stuff"; Hymns for Kids hymnal; and, worksheets, puzzles, and answer keys.

Overview

  • The reason why we sing and what the Bible has to say about singing
  • The history of the hymns: from the time of Moses to the New Testament, through church history and to our own time
  • The purpose of hymns: to praise the Lord; and, to encourage, admonish and instruct one another in the faith
  • Types of worship songs: psalms, hymns, and modern praise songs
  • A review of famous hymns and hymnbooks, and hymn writers like Isaac Watts, Charles Wesley, and Fanny Crosby
