This book is a
collection of 101 short stories about a fictional Christian family and
their everyday experiences. Each story brings to life Christian values
which we strive to teach our children. Children and adults alike will
enjoy this book time and time again.
The Farbers is also a great devotional book to be used in the
classroom. Several teachers have used this book in their class. From a
school memo of Lynden Protestant Reformed Christian School we read: "If
you want to find out more about the Farbers, talk to any of Miss
Lubbers' students. They loved it!"
From a parent: "My son's teacher would read from the Farbers
for story time. My son wanted to take our copy to school so he could
follow along and sneak a peek at the next story coming up. He really
enjoyed this book."
Review by Barb Dykstra:
"With subjects ranging from school to 4-H (agricultural shows), broken
arms to broken hearts, lambs to wombats, fishing to stealing, and Upper
Michigan to Tasmania, this book will keep your children begging for
The stories hold special appeal because they are written in the first
person from each member of the family. They are very entertaining, with
4-H (agricultural) show and family camping, and, most important, they
each have a message children can understand to help them live as
children of God.
Obedience first comes through strongly— and the consequences of
disobedience are easily understood. The stories show the important place
Scripture holds in family life...
Each story in itself can lead to a good discussion with your children as
you laugh or cry with the characters in their problems—you'll find your
own there somewhere!"
