Bible Story Book for Kids: True Bible Stories for Children About Jesus and the New Testament Every Christian Child Should Know 

The stories in this book are great to teach your child about Jesus, his life and the events that happened in it, and the way it developed into a Christian religion. This book can be used in many ways: as a bedtime story, a study book or during Christian holidays.

When God Made You 

This book is suitable for children age 3 to 7, and the story inside focuses on you, the child. Not only is the text a way of accepting each child’s uniqueness, the illustrations are very special. Let every child discover what God’s plan is for him or her, and it will give them the best possible start of their life.

The Oak Inside the Acorn

We are not on earth for no reason, each of us has a task. Finding out what that task is, can be quite a challenge, but Max Lucado inspires readers age 6 to 10 on how to find their true self and what their special skills are. Once a child knows its worth, it is on a good path.

Don’t Forget to Remember 

We like this book, because it is for the little people in your family. Aimed at age group 0 to 4, the story highlights why it is important to remember what is true, and that is that God’s love is always there with you.

This Little Light of Mine: A Lift the Flap Children’s Book

God’s love is everywhere if you accept Jesus in your life. Your child will have fun lifting all the flaps on each page, where it will discover hidden lights. The end of the book holds a surprise.

God Gave Us You

This is a story about a mama bear and a bear cub, and the cub wants to know where she came from. The answer in this book is that the cub was a gift from God, and that the cub was and still is very welcome.

Bible Promises and Prayers for Children: Releasing Your Child’s Divine Destiny

We recommend this book to Christian parents who want to teach their children about God. This is a practical resource for parents, and it can be completed in 31 days.

What Happens When I Talk to God?: The Power of Prayer for Boys and Girls (The Power of a Praying® Kid)

We love it when the message in a book and its illustration come together, and that is exactly what happens in ‘What Happens When I Talk to God?’. It explains prayer and gives appropriate examples.

How Great Is Our God: 100 Indescribable Devotions About God and Science (Indescribable Kids)

This is a favorite of many, both adult and child, and it is especially suitable for children age 6 to 10. The photographs, illustrations, activities and facts in this book are amazing.

When I Pray for You

What we enjoy most in this book, is the fact that it will show how much you value your child by saying the prayers out loud. There really is no age limit to this book, and it is especially valuable during the milestones in a child’s life, like birthdays and graduations. Truly inspiring.
