The Not Even Once Club is a cute little book written by Wendy Watson Nelson (married to Elder Russel M. Nelson). The story is about a young boy who moves into town and is invited to join the Not Even Once Club which is a club with the primary children in his neighborhood. In this club they make a commitment to keep gospel principles. If anyone should ask them to break these principles they are to respond, “Not Even Once!”
It’s a sweet story that I think young children will love and they’ll want to join the club too. And the pictures are amazing! I love Brandon Dorman’s illustrations! My daughters (who are both too young to read) have already looked through the book a few times and just looked at the pictures. It will be fun to be able to talk to them about it more as they grow older.
This is a great tool to start conversations with your children about things that we should and shouldn’t do. From keeping the word of wisdom to not looking at pornography to dressing modestly and bullying – all are briefly mentioned. And Wendy Nelson even provides some teaching questions and resources to help your children better understand why we should keep the commandments.
I think young children could get excited about this! And the beautiful pictures will help get them thinking about it too. I think it’s a great book and teaching tool!
