As always, when the seasons change I get the itch to purchase new books for the little ones…particularly Samantha. The nice thing is I don’t have to feel too guilty about constantly buying books because she IS growing and needs books that are age appropriate. That’s what I tell myself when I go to the check out box on Amazon
With Samantha able to comprehend more very rapidly I’ve been seriously thinking about teaching her more about God. Up until recently all we’ve really done is talk about God in different ways throughout our day to get her familiar with hearing about him, we pray before meals and at bedtime, and we have been teaching her the doxology. Brad also started reading little passages from the bible to her. It’s very sweet. I went ahead and bought some books to further help increase her knowledge of God. These three are not the only ones. We’ve purchased little board books on Noah and the Ark, Moses, and other books that have combinations of different bible stories in them.
These three books are Night Night Prayer, Night Night Blessings, and Read Aloud Bible Stories Vol 4. I chose these three to share for a few reasons. Most importantly I like how they teach children to focus on God in all that they do in a way children can understand, the illustrations are lovely and help keep the childrens’ attention, and there are no pictures of Jesus. If you are interested in why no pictures of Jesus is important to us click HERE. I’m not here to have a biblical debate, but I wanted to share these books for others who feel the same as we do. I am grateful to those who recommend good books to us and I hope I can do the same for others.
