A wee-kid Wednesday book review, this afternoon we look at a Christian Children’s book we recommend for your family!  I’m thankful for Michael Coughlin (Twitter, Blog) for letting me know that this series is cheaper on RHB online store).

Athanasius Christian Biographies for Young Readers Series

Simonetta Carr. Athanasius (Christian Biographies for Young Readers Series).  Grand Rapids: Reformation Heritage Books, August 22, 2011. 64 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Reformation Heritage Books | Westminster Amazon

Interested in learning about the lives and examples of early Christian believers in Church history?  Since I first learned a little about church history and the Church leader Athanasius, I always thought his life was worth studying more in-depth for not just historical knowledge but encouragement as a Christian for today’s contemporary world.  Now with this book written by Simonetta Carr both adults and children can learn about Athanasius and be edified!  This book is part of the Christian Biographies for Young Readers Series and this is the first volume I read aloud to my three daughters. The book impressed me so much that I am thinking about purchasing more books from this series!

Is it possible to have a children’s book on Messianic prophecies about Jesus Christ?  I think the answer is yes!  And wonderfully this is not just possible as an idea but I’m grateful that this was actually done!  Author Paul Reynolds and Christian Focus Publication has given us this wonderful Christ-centered book for kids that parents can read to their children (and older kids can read for themselves!).  I am so glad this book was published and wished more parents and grandparents know about this work!

The Pilgrims Before the Mayflower

Did you ever wonder what life was like for the Pilgrims before coming to America? Why were they called Pilgrims and why were they called Separatists before their pilgrimage? This book is a wonderful resource to teach second and third graders about the history of some of the first Christians who came to America.

Would you like a children’s book that touches on God’s omniscience?  This book then might be worth your while.  Author and artist Jan Sprivey Gilchrist presents us a book on how God is all knowing, and how that is relevant for young children.  Gilchrist largely does that by drawing from our own childhood.  I love that.
