    Welcome to the first monthly installment of the Skepchick Book Club. This week we’re discussing The Good News Club: The Christian Right’s Stealth Assault on America’s Children by Katherine Stewart. This is one of the scariest nonfiction books I’ve read, especially the section on where the Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) is targeting Boston, where I live.   This song will help children to know the way of Salvation through 5 different colours – the song is called “The Wordless Book song”. Enjoy learning the song and then share it .
