Philip Ryken has issued a warning about new children’s books. This highlights the difficult challenge parents face in selecting books centered on the Cross (rather than terminating on ethics or the feats of David, Daniel, Joshua, Ruth, Peter, Paul, etc.). My wife and I have come to love two specific volumes that are both Cross-centered AND child approved. We highly recommend The Big Picture Story Bible (Crossway: 2004) as an easy-to-follow and well illustrated guide through the biblical storyline. And of course another family favorite is Caleb’s Lamb by Helen Santos (Reformation Heritage Books: 2005). Read our review from last year for more information.
Know of a good Cross-centered children’s book to recommend? Let us know in the comments.
Blessings, and have a great weekend worshiping our gracious Savior! Tony
