This engaging rhyming version of “The Good Samaritan” teaches children how important it is to be kind to others, no matter who they are or where they come from.
Children love Janet’s rhythmic style and the delightfully real, hand-drawn illustrations appeal to them, as they follow the story of the unfortunate traveller attacked by robbers on the road to Jericho.
The happy ending where we see the traveller returned to his family, spells out the consequences that may have come about if he had not been rescued by the Samaritan, and children can see for themselves how happy his family is, when he comes home.
It is refreshing to see this timeless story, told in Janet’s fun and engaging style, delivering an encouraging lesson to ‘love your neighbour’ to the next generation of children. The importance of being kind to others, can never be overstated.
