Top 5 Childrens Books

with 4 comments

The Jesus Storybook Bible

Someone asked for this list.  I have no children and am not very knowledgeable here.  Hence, someone who has children and better resources please post books that should be listed here.

1.  The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones

This book is a monumental achievement.  I really don’t know what parents did for their children before this book.  I have heard that The Big Picture Story Bible is also good.

2.  Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

These are classic books and solid Christian allegory.  When they get older, have them read the Lord of the Rings series by J.R.R. Tolkien

3.  The Poison Cup by R.C. Sproul

Yes, R.C. Sproul has written some children’s books.  The Poison Cup is the only one I am familiar with, but I have heard that The Lightlings and The King Without a Shadow are also good.

4.  Window on the World by Daphne Spraggett and Jill Johnstone

This is like Operation World for kids.  It will introduce them to world missions and prayer for other people groups.

5.  First Catechism

This is the Westminster Shorter Catechism for Children.  Also, the entire list of questions and answers can be found here for free.

  2. A couple other worthy considerations…
    The Priest with Dirty Clothes by R.C. Sproul:
    This is the best single story book I have read to date — coming from the Grand Poobah, that says a lot.

    The Child’s Story Book by Catherine Vos:
    I plan to wear this book out while reading through it with my kids (Lord willing). This book spans from Genesis to Revelation with great clarity and brevity, while always paying attention to the grand narrative of scripture: “I will be your God, and you will be My people.”

    The Grand Poobah
