Have you heard of the Pullman Porters?  If so have you realized how important they were for things in our society such as civil rights?  In this fascinating illustrated children’s book author Vanita Oelschlager tells us about this occupation and also how they were significant to the civil rights movement.  I thought the book was beautifully illustrated and fact based.  Fascinating!

Want a children’s picture story book that you can read concerning Jesus’ parable of the lost sheep?  Tim Ladwig has done another excellent children’s book on Jesus’ parables.  I was actually excited seeing he has another volume out.  Previously I have enjoyed his book on Jesus’ parable of the prodigal son and the Good Samaritan.  In this present volume he continues the trend of making good quality children’s book.

Looking for a book on defining the theological terms concerning Jesus but for little kids?  This is what this board book for kids tries to accomplish.  It is a part of the Big Theology for Little Hearts series published by Crossway.  The series tries to take “big ideas” from the Scripture and give a concise definition and illustrations to help kids between ages 1-5 understand the terms.  What a fascinating concept!

As a kid I love Choose Your Own Adventures!  Now that I’m a parent I wanted my kids to also enjoy these.  I got this book to read to my kids after I read a Christian version of Choose Your Own Adventure and I thought I read one aloud to them.  Of all the titles I picked this one since it focused on the American War of Independence and I’ve gone over the topic as a history lesson with my kids.  My girls thought it was a fun historical fiction!

For this week’s “Wee-kids” Wednesdays here’s a review of a children’s book that I got from the publisher but I don’t see it on sale yet; so I linked to the author’s other similar work here and here.

Elizabeth Raum.  Crossroads in Jerusalem. Greenville, SC: BJU Press, November 14th 2019. 150? pp.

5 out of 5

Do you like the old “Choose Your own adventure?”  And do you want to read a Christian and biblical one?  If so this title is one that you should conside!  In this work the author takes us to the time of Jesus’ visit to Jerusalem.  The author is able to blend in biblical events and teachings with respectful and reverential imagination involving you as a character among the people.  She is able to write in such a way as to let you the reader choose your journey. Every choice you make changes the story. After a journey end you can go back to the crossroads and pick a different unread path.

In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of a Christian Children’s book.  I’m grateful for the publisher allowing me an electronically copy to read and review before its published next week!

Andrew Wilson. Sophie and the Heidelberg Cat.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, September 3rd 2019.  36 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Want to read a good children’s book for young ones to understand sin and the need for God’s grace?  This is an excellent book for that!  The author told this story in a way that kids would relate in terms of the kinds of sins that would happen between siblings and at home and certainly my daughters felt they could identify with the main character Sophie.  Yet the story also point towards God’s grace to be forgiven for sin!  That’s quite an accomplishment for 36 pages for a children’s book on such a serious topic.  I recommend this as I have a hard time finding good Gospel books for kids that is serious about sin and serious about Grace.
