      When we read the Bible we can do what it tells us to do. Lets look at the Monkey Moves Book
      and do what it tells us to do. Show & read each page, and help kids respond. Continue until all pages have been read aloud, or as time allows. Then say: Just like we read and did what Mr. Monkey told us to do, when we read the Bible we can do what God tells us to do. God always tells us the BEST things to do because He loves us!
