Favorite Christian Children Books

Christian children books for creative Bible study!

These are some of the best books for kids because they contain stories that go beyond the read.  Just as Jesus used parables, stories which taught spiritual lessons, we can use these best books for kids as a spring board into valuable life lessons for our kids.

Christian Children Books for Preschoolers

The "Little Blessings" books illustrated by Elena Kucharik are some of my favorites because of their variety of ethnicity! The text also includes rhythmic rhyming with messages of God's love and blessings.

These are definitely some of my favorite Christian children books for preschool ages!

You can be dark or you can be light.

You can be shades of the day or the night.

Whatever your color, it suits you just right.

God loves you just as you are.

The Tale of Three Trees

One of my favorites is based on a folktale with an unknown origin.  In book form it has been brought to life by Angela Elwell Hunt and Tim Jonke.

Because it touches on both the birth of Christ and also His crucifixion, it is a wonderful addition to both Christmas and Easter reading lists for all ages.

It begins...

Once upon a mountaintop,

three little trees stood and

dreamed of what they wanted

to become when they grew up.

A beautiful story of hope flows as the trees dreams are not realized in the way they thought, but in yet a better, unthought of miracle.  

Tale of Three Trees Bible Lesson - When Our Dreams Come True in a Different Way (Jeremiah 29:11, Romans 8:28)

Just in Case YOu Ever Wonder

This special book by Max Lucado has touched thousands of children over the past 25 years and now has a beautiful facelift with new illustrations ready to reach even more generations with the message they are loved by their caregivers and also by God! 

Long, long ago God made a decision -

a very important decision ...

one that I'm really glad He made.

He made the decision to make you.

Just in Case You Ever Wonder is one of those Christian children books that make a perfect gift for a baby shower or any time for any child!

You Are Special

One of my favorite authors of Christian children books is Max Lucado. I've read these to children, youth and adults; their message of God's love and truth are relevant to any age group.

What a powerful message needed by our young ones today - "You are special!"  This Christian children book begins...

The Wemmicks were small wooden people.

All of the wooden people were carved

by a woodworker named Eli.

Punchinello receives a lot of bad marks in the form of gray dot stickers from the other Wemmicks.  He begins to feel like he is worthless until he meets a new friend who has no stickers at all.  She tells him about his Maker, Eli the woodcarver and takes him to meet Eli.  

Such valuable lessons of identity, worrying about what others think and the truth of what God thinks will encourage any child or adult.

God Gave Us Heaven

I think Lisa Tawn Begren's God Gave Us Heaven is one of my new favorites!  This little treasure touches on so many things we wonder about Heaven and give sound biblical answers in a fun and easy story format.  She also touches on the topic of death that dispels fear and an easy illustration of the hope found in the Gospel!

* Special note to those that "proofread" like me: I know there should be an apostrophe showing possession - "Christian children's books," but my keyword prompt won't accept it! ...Just wanted you to know, and thanks for overlooking it! :)

Special note: We do preview the websites to which we link, but are unable to peruse them completely. We try to check others' faith statements and make sure they do profess Jesus Christ as God's Son and salvation is found only in Him. It must, however, be your responsibility to personally dig into God's Word and allow the Holy Spirit to be your first and final teacher on all subjects.
