I have had friends ask me lately which children’s books we love, so I thought a blog post about it was in order.

Most books listed below can be used with boys and girls. There are a few that are gender specific.
The first book is The Princess and the Kiss by Jennie Bishop. This is a sweet story of purity and waiting for the one God has intended for you for marriage. It teaches the importance of waiting and keeping oneself pure so that God will be honored in marriage.
The next one is The Squire and the Scroll by Jennie Bishop. This is a companion to The Princess and the Kiss. It is a story of overcoming temptation and keeping the heart pure.
These two books are so sweet. They discuss several character words that God’s word tells us to develop. Each word has a Proverb that goes with it and a cute little rhyme to help them learn. The pictures are beautiful and so fun. My kids all enjoy these ones.
I love this book. It is a cute little poem about the parable of the Good Shepherd from Luke 15:3-7. It is so fun to read, the story is exciting and the pictures are cute.
Halfway Herbert is a story of a boy named Herbert who does things halfway. He is lazy and irresponsible but after a lesson from the Bible, Herbert learns that God can help him to live his fully and for God’s glory. We use this book often in our house, and remind the kids a lot to not be a Halfway Herbert.
We don’t have all of this set. Right now the only one we have is The Scripture. It is an excellent book for small children. Here is part of the description off the back of the book.
“The Scripture teaches children that the Word of God is true, inspired, reliable, and profitable to lead them to God and a life of godliness. This book is a tool to help youngsters find wisdom that leads to salvation, guidance for everyday living, and hope for the future through the Bible.” Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers – The Scripture by Joey Allen.
This book is fun. It is the story of a family living during the great ice age. It is written from a Christian worldview with a young earth perspective. We enjoyed this book a few years ago as part of our school curriculum and have looked through it several times since then.
There are a lot more books that I could list here. Being a homeschool mom I kinda have an obsession with books, which is hard when you live in a 5th wheel! It was so difficult to choose which books to bring with us on this adventure and which ones to leave behind.
