“Gospel-centred and appropriate!”

(Review written for 'Tales of the Unexpected (Starter Pack)')

This course has been very helpful in an evangelistic toddlers group for parents as an alternative to other longer courses. All of our unchurched mums have really enjoyed 'Tales of the Unexpected'. It's very accessible for non-Christians and I thoroughly recommend it.
