Welcome to OPEN THE BOOK

Have you ever thought that children in schools might be missing out on what the Bible has to show them? They could go through their entire school life without ever learning about Adam and Eve, Noah, David, Jonah ... or even the life of Jesus and the stories of the New Testament.

OPEN THE BOOK offers a programme of themed and dramatised Bible stories at no charge to the schools. Each session is around 10 minutes long and fits comfortably into assembly times.

Our teams of volunteer storytellers use drama, mime, props, costume - even the children and staff themselves - to present Bible stories in ways that are lively, engaging, informative ... and great fun for everyone involved!

So now, thanks to OPEN THE BOOK, children in schools will have the opportunity during Collective Worship to discover all the wonder and wisdom that the Bible can offer!

Overview

OPEN THE BOOK offers primary school children an opportunity to hear the major stories of the Bible in an interactive and enjoyable way during assembly times. Teams of Christians from local churches tell the stories in a 10-15 minute presentation. This can be incorporated into a wider school assembly, or stand alone.

All the Year One stories are taken from The Lion Storyteller Bible written by Bob Hartman, and give an overview of the Bible from Creation to the Ascension. There are a further 2 years of themed material for those schools (and teams) who wish to continue. It is a mark of OPEN THE BOOK's popularity that most schools continue with the programme!

OPEN THE BOOK fulfils both OFSTED and SIAS (Church School Inspection) requirements for Collective Worship, and has been successfully used in a multi-faith context.

 

STOP PRESS!

The Lion Storyteller Bible  by Bob Hartman is available from Choice Words Bookshop at a special price of £12.99.  (RRP £15.99)

 

Promotional DVD available
Please email enquiries@openthebook.net. The DVD is free but donations towards the cost of postage and packing will help us to use our resources towards helping more children enjoy Bible stories in their schools through OPEN THE BOOK.

We will tell the next generation....and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God........
Psalm 78:4,6
