Hello, lovely readers! Today, I want to share a quick list of children's books that have captured my heart as a Christian mom. Each one of these gems beautifully intertwines faith, love, and creativity, serving as perfect bedtime reads or daily devotions for your little ones.
This I Know - Have you noticed the fingerprints of God in the world around us? The creation tells us about its Creator. His beauty in the trees. His power in the thunder. His eternity in the night sky. Join a family on an unforgettable road trip, as they witness the wonder of God's world. And see how all of creation confirms what the Bible tells us: Jesus loves me, this I know.
God Made Us - By Link Dyrdahl. With beautiful illustrations and a sweet, simple message, this book will delight and inspire young children at story time.
My Dear Little One - From award-winning speaker and best-selling author Al Carraway comes a beautiful letter of faith and hope that every child is meant to hear. This inspiring message is a powerful testimony of God's reassurance that He walks with them continually throughout their life's journey.
A is for Ark - This fun alphabet book isn't just educational but is also rooted in biblical stories. 'A' might be for Ark, but every letter offers a faith-filled lesson.
When I Pray for You - by Matthew Paul Turner and Kimberley Barnes. When I Pray for You celebrates the dreams, hopes, and longings parents pray over their children, and shares with the little ones how much care and concern a loved one feels for them. This is a book you will read to your child again and again. Perfect for any occasion, as well as for milestones including baby showers, birthdays, and graduations.
Don't Forget to Remember - This is a gentle nudge for little ones (and even us adults) to spot the daily reminders of God's presence and love in our lives.
Each of these books offers more than just a story; they provide a foundation for instilling faith, values, and love in young hearts. Whether you're looking for a meaningful bedtime story or tools to foster a deeper spiritual understanding in your children, this list has been curated to meet those very needs.
