"The Stories to Remember" series answers a demand for good quality Big Book format books with simply-written and well illustrated stories from the different faith traditions. Each title in the series contains three stories, chosen to represent different aspects of/key concepts within a main faith tradition as identified by locally agreed syllabuses for RE. 'Big book' format enables teachers to use the stories/text with class groups-the language level is appropriate for pupils aged 5-6 (Key Stage 1). The A5-size pupil's books are accessible for independent readers aged 6-8 (KS1 and lower KS2). The themes raised by the stories also relate to the themes for Key Stage 1 (ages 5-6) in the non-statutory national framework for RE. Teacher's notes printed on the inside covers provide guidance on how the stories could provide a starting point for learning and assessment in RE. "Father of Many" presents stories from the Judaism which reflect key themes in the Jewish faith: "Father of Many", "The Greatest Law" and "Ruth and Naomi". All books are available in Welsh language editions.
