"Earning" Entrance

When the children first begin the Kids 4 Truth program, we suggest that they complete a "Starter Book." These trial Q&As consist of very simple Gospel truths and are designed not to intimidate children but rather to motivate them and acclimate them to the Kids 4 Truth curriculum. After successfully learning the answers to these several questions, the children are "ready" to enter the program. They then receive their curriculum books ("TruthBooks") and the standards which will hold their award patches.

The Kids 4 Truth program is not exclusive. You can decide how much emphasis you want to place on the idea of a starter book. Sometimes it can be an incentive to the kids to think they are, in a way, "earning" their standards and TruthBooks.

Please note: The STARTER BOOKS are certainly optional, but highly recommended.
