For this post I’m simply going to pick another four of my personal favourite children’s books.
- Children’s Devotions by Frances Ridley Havergal. http://www.christianfocus.com/item/show/155/-/sr_1 – this is a lovely collection of devotional readings – something that you can do with your child early in the morning or last thing at night.
- With Two Hands by Rebecca Davis – http://www.christianfocus.com/item/show/1313/-/sr_1 – from the first moment i read the manuscript I was hooked on her books. You may feel you have a child who has read every missionary story available – if so then get them onto Rebecca’s books. They are so well written and they introduce the reader to christians from other cultures, indigenous churches and unsung heroes and heroines of the faith.
- A girl of two Worlds by Lorna Eglin. Though this book is largely fictional – it is based on Lorna’s own experience with the Massai tribe of Kenya and her time as a missionary with them. The key character has to struggle with existing in two very different cultures… which will win out in the end – her tribal family, or her Christian church… or can it be both? http://www.christianfocus.com/item/show/347/-/sr_1
- A Young Person’s Guide to Knowing God by Patricia St. John http://www.christianfocus.com/item/show/864/-/sr_9 – this book has some of the best gospel short stories that I’ve ever read. A perfect read aloud book – but also ideal for a young reader to dip into by themselves. Functions as a devotional book aswell.
