After having 4 children we have accumulated a number of children's Bibles, books and devotionals. Here is a list of a few of our favorite authors and resources.
Jesus Story Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones
Thoughts To Make Your Heart Sing Vol. 1 by Sally Lloyd-Jones (Kindle $1.99)
Long Story Short: Ten Minute Devotions To Draw Your Family To God by Marty Machowski
Old Story New by Marty Machowski
Have you ever read anything by Ethel Barrett? We have just started reading her books and we love them. Here are a few.
Which Way to Nineveh by Ethel Barrett
Will the Real Phony Please Stand Up? by Ethel Barrett
"A phony is a fake. A sham. A hypocrite. A phony is all "show" and no "go". You don't have to read very far in his letter to find that James was down on phoniness. For James, being a Christian was as practical as a pair of shoes -- not just for putting on and showing, but for getting up and going."
Ethel Barrett is a great story teller and anything she has written is worth getting. I am trying to collect all her books but sadly they are out of print. If you want to buy them you have to get them used. You might be able to check some out through the library.
His Loving Law, Our Lasting Legacy: Living the Ten Commandments and Giving Them To Our Children by Jani Ortlund (to work through with older children)
One Year of Dinner Devotions and Discussion Starters by Nancy Guthrie
Girls and Boys Playing by J.C. Ryle (Kindle $1.99)
These are a few sermons that he wrote for children. It was originally published in 1886 but the language has been updated a little for easier reading.
Herein is Love, Vol. 1: Genesis by Nancy Ganz (Kindle $1.99)
Herein is Love, Vol. 2: Exodus by Nancy Ganz (Kindle $1.99)
Nancy Ganz has written 5 commentaries for children starting with Genesis and ending with Deuteronomy. I believe she is in the process of writing one for Joshua. Don't be put off by the fact that these are commentaries. She writes in a conversational style and is very thorough. I have especially loved the two listed above. These are good for children in grades 3 and up.
And of course we love anything by Starr Meade who I already talked about here.
I am always looking for more children's resources so let me know if any that you found to be helpful.
