A Missionary Homeschooler's Review  Sep 9, 2007
One of the resources we had picked out for Church History this year was YWAM's Heroes for Young Readers series (we bought the set), and so far it is the one choice that I feel borderlines on an actual mistake.

To begin, let me say that I find missionary stories to be very beneficial for children: the stories can really wow you & they let kids know that even when their problems seem huge to them, when you compare them to the amazing testimonies of missionaries around the world and throughout history, problems no longer seem too vast for God and miraculous goodness no longer seems like something relegated to Bible times. For my now 17-year-old, reading biographies on William Carey, Hudson Taylor, Eric Liddell, Jim Elliot and Brother Andrew (among others) made a huge impact on his faith. I also feel there is a large gap in Christian education today where the church as a whole (not all individuals) is lacking in the history of its own faith: both history and practice. That said, it seems never to early to begin learning the names and stories of those who have gone before us as our children begin living the stories of their own testimonies. That's the reason for buying the YWAM Heroes for Young Readers. So why am I disappointed?

YWAM for some reason chose to tell these stories in rhyming verse - sort of like the Cat in the Hat only on a more serious topic. I know that children love rhyme, but too much of these wonderful stories is lost because rhyme doesn't allow more than the barest telling of the tales. Simple prose could have told the miracles of transport to new places, explained better who the Hindus are and what they believe, talked about what was so different from their lives in their home countries. Instead, we get the bare facts. With William Carey that means your child will know he went to India, learned languages and translated the Gospels, had his printing shop burn down, taught at colleges, and had a hard time getting initial converts. Written out like that it doesn't seem so bad, but I haven't found the rhyming verse in this case to be as memorable as a well told story.

We're still using the books. We read them, find the counties on the map, and will tie them into the rest of this year's reading - meaning, as one example, that when we read Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories we will again refer back to William Carey. When we cover Thanksgiving we will note that they left from the same country as William did, and so on and so forth. Not a total loss. In a couple more years we'll be able to move up to the next level of missionary biography and the names will already be familiar. My youngest will be amazed that the stories of these familiar names are so much more incredible than he knew. Growing into a story needn't be such a bad thing, and his curriculum is not lacking in examples of finer writing, poetry as well as prose - and I would add that in reading these simple books to him both my older son and I, who are more familiar with the details of the testimonies, are reminded to be in awe of how God has worked throughout history...
