I just got a job teaching religious education at a Unitarian church. They have a portion of the church service that the kids participate in called "story for all ages" which basically means someone sits up at the front of the church with the kids, and reads a story to both the kids, and all of the adults.
Kids are 3 almost 4 (my ds), 6, 9, and 15 (15yr old is autistic), and adults are all ages.
The kids can see the pictures in the book, but the adults couldn't really, even with holding it up, so it needs to be something that the pictures aren't essential for telling the story. Also, I don't want anything super long, but also nothing super short.
I'd love some ideas of things that will appeal to all!
