A child King...  

After God’s people split into two kingdoms—the kingdom of Israel and the kingdom of Judah—each nation was ruled by a series of kings. Your kids are learning about the southern kingdom of Judah. Judah was ruled by many evil kings, but Hezekiah and Josiah loved God and wanted to follow His commands. Hezekiah's son Manasseh took the throne and turned Judah away from God for 55 years. He was followed by his son, Amon, who was just as evil. Upon his death, his 8 year old son Josiah took the throne! Josiah was later known as the greatest king of Judah - oh what God can do when we turn to Him! Both Hezekiah and Josiah wanted God's people to love God and obey the law too. When Jesus came to earth, He fulfilled the law by obeying it perfectly.
Read all about it in 2 Chronicles 29, 34-35
