Jimmy Learns About Life by Pamela A. Taylor can be used in Bible classes for children to teach them good concepts through the stories learned by Jimmy. The Food for Thought section at the end of each chapter can be used to make the classes interactive and help children reflect on instances in their lives and how they have reacted to similar situations encountered by Jimmy in the stories. It is a good storybook for parents and tutors to use for read-aloud and storytelling sessions to instill good Christian values in children in an interesting way, without making it sound too preachy. The book also highlights the importance of good parenting and shows parents how wisely Jimmy's mother deals with issues. She uses those moments to teach him good concepts and the values required to help children become good human beings as they work with the Lord on a daily basis.
