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!

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.

This is a children’s book on the biblical story of Rahab.  It is a book that is a part of the series called “Called and Courageous Girls Series” published by Harvest House Publishers and it is the first book in the series that I and my family have read.  The writer Rachel Spier Weaver and illustrator Eric Elwell has given us a beautiful book.  I personally enjoyed the artwork and so did my daughters (I read this book to them and got their feedback).

This is the third Banner Board Books for kids that I purchased to read to my young preschool age daughters.  I enjoyed the first two so much that I decided to order the other two Banner Board books.  These are great resources to introduce godly historical figures from church history to young kids that still need their parents to read to them and also for those who are starting to read.  This particular title was on George Whitefield, the famous eighteenth century English Gospel preacher who evangelized in both Europe and North America.

This is a Christian children’s book that I picked up from the Shepherd’s Conference.  Unlike my younger unmarried days ten years ago in which the first book I read from my pile of purchased books from the Conference it isn’t a book on systematic theology, apologetics or ministry.  Now it’s a children’s book to my daughters!

Kevin DeYoung. The Biggest Story ABC.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, August 31st 2017.  32 pp.

This is a children’s book written by Christian pastor, theological professor and Christian writer Kevin DeYoung.  DeYoung is probably better known for his works for an adult Christian general audience.  This is what I believe his second children’s book and he brings his writing skill to share biblical truths in a way that is accessible to his specific audience which in this instance is for children ages 1 to 3.

Looking for a devotional Bible stories book you can read to your kids?  I like this particular book because this is a children’s Bible story book based upon God’s titles found in the Word of God. There are forty chapters in the book with each covering a different title.  The subtitle for the book is “40 Reasons to Trust God” and of course God’s title reveal His character and attributes which are reasons why we can trust God.  I enjoyed reading this book to my children and also my children enjoyed it when I read it to them.  They would often ask me to keep on reading to the next chapter as part of our nightly reading routine before they go to sleep.
