In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” this week’s review of a children’s book isn’t a Christian work but still something homeschool kids and parents would appreciate!

 

Geronimo Stilton.  The Secret of the Sphinx. New York, NY: Papercutz, August 18th 2009. 56 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

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!

Since becoming a parent I have also been eyeing and reviewing Christian children’s books.  Here are review of two more works.

Tomie DePaola.  Tomie DePaola’s Book of Bible Stories. New York, NY: Puffin Books, February 18th 2002. 128 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is an illustrated children’s book of stories from the Bible.  The publisher states the age range for this book is from ages 4 to 8.  In terms of school grade level that is from preschool to third grade.  I thought this was a good book to have for Christian parents to read to their children.  I personally read this work to my kids at night before they went to sleep.

These Banner Board Books for children are awesome!  I plan to review the other two

Rebecca VanDoodewaard.  The Woman Who Loved To Give Books: Susannah Spurgeon. Carlisle, PA: The Banner of Truth Trust, November 10th 2017. 16 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is the first Banner Board Books for kids that I purchased to read to my young daughters who at that time were five years old and under.  I bought it to introduce godly historical figures from church history that would serve as an example to them.  This particular title was on Susannah Spurgeon the wife of the famous English Preacher Charles Spurgeon.

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.

5 out of 5

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.

NOTE: This book was provided to me free by Star Bright Books and Net Galley without any obligation for a positive review. All opinions offered above are mine unless otherwise stated or implied.

I know our blog has been going over some serious heavy stuff concerning Bible difficulties, alleged contradictions and Messianic prophecies the last few days.  Here’s a review of a Children’s book Bible.

David R. Helm. The Big Picture Story Bible.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, September 17th 2004.  456 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is a children’s picture Bible published by Crossway.  The publisher stated that this book is for ages four and up but my three year old also enjoyed it too when I read it to all my kids.  It is a massive book, coming in at 456 pages but don’t worry as it is still a children’s book and my family went through this and found that the book has a good pace for our evening reading.  So the 456 pages is good if you are looking for something to go over with children ages three to six year old in terms of regular daily read.  I love how there are many pictures in the book.  Also while this book is big coming in with a dimension of 9 x 1.1 x 9 inches and weighing 3.6 pounds nevertheless I enjoyed it size so the kids can enjoy the book more especially if you are reading to multiple kids at once.

R.C. Sproul,. The Barber Who Wanted To Pray.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, September 16th 2011.  30 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is another of RC Sproul’s children book.  There has been a few of his books that I and my kids have enjoyed from him which led me to purchase this book as well.  In this work RC Sproul writes a book that touches on prayer.  I love how in this book as well as others RC Sproul writes on spiritual truths using a story within a story in which the first level of the story are kids hearing adults telling a story with a spiritual lesson that is relevant for them and their situation.  That helps the kids think more reflectively of how the main story applies to the children’s lives.

Jared Kennedy.  The Beginner’s Gospel Story Bible.  Greensboro, NC: New Growth Press, November 13th, 2017. 272 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

My kids and I really enjoyed this book.  As the title and the cover of the book suggests this is a book with Bible stories for little children and is meant for kids between the age range of three to seven which is exactly the age range of my children.
