HymnsforKids cover web"Hymns for Kids: Learn How to Read and Enjoy Christian Hymns" introduces hymnology to children.

Appropriate for beginner piano students, as a unit study for homeschoolers, or just for introducing hymnology, Hymns for Kids is written with eight to 12-year olds in mind (though it is appropriate for younger--and older--audiences), this booklet is divided in two parts: an overview of hymns; and, the "technical stuff" (each section includes review questions).


  • The reason why we sing and what the Bible has to say about singing
  • The history of the hymns: from the time of Moses to the New Testament, through church history and to our own time
  • The purpose of hymns: to praise the Lord; and, to encourage, admonish and instruct one another in the faith
  • Types of worship songs: chants, psalms, hymns and modern praise songs
  • A review of famous hymns and hymnbooks
  • A review of some famous hymn writers like Isaac Watts, Charles Wesley and Fanny Crosby

The "Technical Stuff"

  • Voices; four part harmonies
  • Lyrics and refrains
  • Tune names
  • Meters: common, long, short, etc.
