In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of a Christian Children’s book.  This book just came out last week and its currently #1 in Amazon’s category of New Release for Children’s Bible study.  At this moment it is relatively reasonable in its price too!

 

Harvest House Bible Inforgraphics Team. Bible Infographics for Kids Volume 2.  Eugene, OR: Harvest House Publishers, May 7th 2019.  56 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a fun and informative book for kids concerning the Bible published by Harvest House Publishers.  I went through this book together with my kids at night and they enjoyed the pictures, graph and facts.  The details include truths that are more like “fun facts” but at times there were some very good instruction concerning more weighty matters that was extremely helpful.  The artwork is well done and really reinforce the content being taught.  After reading this volume I’m considering getting volume 1 which is my vote of approval for this book.

We continue with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” and this week’s review of children’s book is a Christian book on prayer that kids and parents would appreciate!

Nancy Guthrie. What Every Child Should Know About Prayer.  Leyland, UK: 10Publishing, August 6th 2018.  144 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This was a helpful book on prayer written by the author Nancy Guthrie.  According to the product information online the audience of the book is intended for kids ages 3-7.  For younger kids that means their parents will have to read it to them while older kids can also read this book by themselves.  I read this to my daughters as bed time reading and they enjoyed it.  In addition as a pastor who is concern for biblical contents of Christian books I thought this book’s theology was doctrinally sound.

This is the second graphic novel in the Geronimo Stilton Graphic Novel series published by Papercutz.  I read this after enjoying first volume.  Like the first one I read this to my daughters and they totally enjoyed it!  How much did they enjoyed it?  When I read it to them at night they tell me not to stop!  These books tell the story of a mouse Geronimo Stilton and his family and friends going into time in history through a time machine to stop the insidious plot of the Pirate Cats.  Besides the adventure long the way young readers will also learn about history.  As a parent passionate about history I like that!

Note: I’ve been immensely busy with preparing for my seminary courses I’m teaching overseas this month.  I thank God for those of you who are praying for my preparation to go overseas to teach.  Again thank you again very much.  In the midst of studies and preparation I don’t want to neglect my preschool kids.  Among other things I want to make the time to read to them.  Which means more late nights study in order to make time for my young little ones.  Also since I’ve been posting some heavy stuff concerning Bible contradictions, exegesis and Messianic prophecies last week I thought this post being more lighthearted is appropriate.  I’m reviewing new Children’s books that has been published or will be published early 2018.  They are not spiritual books, just simple kids stories.

Ellen Mayer. Banana for Two. Cambridge, MA: Star Bright Books, January 25, 2018. 20 pp.

Purchase: Amazon

This is a board picture book that the publishers intended for ages 0-2.  A little book to teach young ones about the number 1 and 2 from the everyday experience of being at the groceries.  It follows a mom and a toddler shopping and going home with the purchased food.  I love the illustrations of this book, the illustrator Ying-Hwa Hu has done a good job.  My daughters appreciated it.  Both the author Ellen Mayer and the illustrator have collaborated on other board books that feature everyday teachable experiences that feature characters of different ethnic background which I thought was pretty neat.  This particular book features a Hispanic mother and her toddler; previous works have included an Asian American family and an African American family.  Yet the experience in this book is relatable for everyone of any background.
