Jesus Calling, The Story of Christmas; Ten in the Bed; The Friend Ship
Books. Books. Books. This former home school mom, grandmother and “reader” loves books. In particular, I love children’s books. A few posts have already been written here on the blog about children’s books, and today I have a new one for you. New books often arrive in my mailbox, or or I find new gems at the bookstore. These favorites, old and new, find their way off the shelf and into the hands of a new generation, my grandkids. Read on to discover new books you will want to introduce to the children in your life!
Sarah Young, the author of Jesus Calling, has written this book for children. The story of Christmas begins at creation. The author highlights that fact that Jesus has always been present, and God always had a plan for Christmas, which is Easter.
Bible verses and devotions are on every spread of this book. The illustrations are by Katya Longhi and are just beautiful.
“Jesus Calling: The Story of Christmas is a beautifully embellished jacketed hardcover with foil and glitter. Curl up the precious young ones in your life, and share with them Jesus Calling: The Story of Christmas.”
Ten in the Bed by Penny Dale is an old favorite. This book originally entered our home about 19 years ago, when I purchased it through Discovery Toys. It has been regularly pulled off the shelf since then. I find it absolutely delightful to read this charming book to my grandchildren!
The Friend Ship by Kat Yeh is a book I found while at Powell’s Books in Portland a couple of years ago. Side note, have you been to Powells? I can not wait to go back! Floors and floors of books… Back to “The Friend Ship” is a gentle reminder of the truth that sometimes what you’re searching for is right there in front of you. I just love seeing understanding grow in Miss Joyness eyes each time we read this book together.
How do you Say Good Night? by Tommy Nelson and Catalina Echeverri
“Zoey the zebra needed to get ready for bed soon…
This sweet board book follows Zoey the zebra as she searches for the best way to say good night. What she finds is that different is good, and it’s okay if what is right for you isn’t necessarily right for me. I love the way this book introduces the concept of celebrating differences.
ABC’s of Physics by Chris Ferrie
Just for “purposeful” fun I picked up this book for my youngest grandson. Both of his parents are quite science minded, and in the healthcare field. I chuckled when I saw this book and decided to slip it into Lil Man’s gift bag. Some time back I studied the way we learn, and about the creating of mental pathways. I think this book will be a gentle beginning of one of those pathways.
There they are, 5 delightful children’s books that you may want to introduce to the children in your life!
Please tell me in the comments, have you added any of the Baby University books to your home library?
