“An excellent little Booklet”

Brilliant presentation of Jesus being a "Friend in the Dark" to children.
We are using it in our goodie bags for trick and treaters at Halloween.

“Really good”

I thought this was a brilliant tract for giving away at halloween. It is attractive, gives a good message and the puzzles promote longer engagement. Recommended!

“Great light party resource”

We used these for our light party and bonfire party. They fit well in party bags with a pen and sweets for kids to go home and complete the activities in the book.
Good service with prompt postage from good book company.

“Great for Light Party”

This resource was brilliant for handing out at our Light Party.
We had already decided to go along with John 8v12 as the memory verse, so to be able to send it home with children was excellent.
Personally, I thought the gospel was presented clearly and liked how their were activities for the children to complete, which made it more interactive than just information to read.
Thanks for producing something so good!

“Great for Light Parties!”

This is a great little booklet both for church and non-church children. We are using these as part of a collection of goodies that the children will take away after our Light Party. The theme of Jesus being 'A Friend in the Dark' was so clear and simple thae we are using this as the springboard for the Bible talk!

“Great for primary-aged children”

This is my favourite of the Halloween tracts - it gently points the reader to why celebrating dark things might not make sense by setting out the wonderful truth about Jesus, the Light. Good mix of information and puzzles for primary age. I bought 50 but needed 80 - will order more next year!

“Great resource. Clear gospel presentation”

Spent ages trying to find good tracts for Halloween and this is by far the best. Bold graphics, simple concept of light overcoming darkness, activities to engage kids and clear gospel presentation. I'll be adding these to all our Halloween goody bags and look forward to seeing how God uses it.

“Brill evangelical tool”

We ran a light party at our church for the first time this year. We were nervous about giving a talk up front to the children and so we based it around this leaflet. The content is excellent. Not too much writing but to the point, activities for the children, and a clear gospel message. We used the prayer at the end as our prayer. Then we gave one to each child in their goodie bag to take home and hopefully read again. We searched online and in Christian bookshops and this is the best Halloween/Light Party tract that we could find.

“Leaflets for Trick or Treaters”

My wife and expected a number of Trick or Treaters call to our door and wanted to give them something more meaningful than just a packet of sweets, so we attached these leaflets to them! This booklet is excellent, a simple and clear explanation of the gospel in the context of Halloween with some activities and puzzles for the reader to engage with too. There's also space to add details of your local church or the person/organisation giving out the leaflet.
A good, thought provoking, resource at a very reasonable price.

“Leaflets for Light Party”

We have been running Light Parties on Halloween for the past 14 years, and throughout this time have been looking for a booklet/leaflet we could give to the children to take home but never found anything that was "just right". This year the search was over with "A Friend in the Dark". Well-written, with a combination of activities and information which points both adults and children to Jesus, and explains that as well as physical darkness being sometimes frightening, there are other things which can make life "dark", and Jesus can be a friend there too. The booklets are good value for money, well-produced and Bible based, and I can thoroughly recommend them to other Light Party organisers and Sunday Schools.
