← Bible stories for children - would you do it?

The child specifically asking for your participation, suggests to me that she would rather have something other than the regular fare.

I'm sure everyone here, in a pinch, could come up with a reasonable facsimile of one of Aesop's fables. Tart it up a smidgeon for a sleepy young imagination, and the story has legs.

I wouldn't antagonize my friend in any way though, by explicitly rejecting his preference. Any story from the book in question with a healthy message and a happy ending would be my choice.

More importantly, offer the child a choice.
