A Few Good Books for Our Children

We teach our children so many things . . . how to walk, tie shoes, read, ride a bike, clean their rooms, chew with their mouths closed, wrap presents, make friends, drive, etc., etc.  The list goes on and on.  But, the most important thing we can pass on to our children is a knowledge and love for the Lord, informed by the full counsel of God–the Bible.

We teach our children by example, but we also teach them with verbal instruction.  Over the years, other moms have asked me which books I recommend to help them teach their children about the Lord and His Word.  Of course, I recommend reading the Bible directly to children first and foremost, but there are a few books that our family has found to be favorites for explaining the truths of Scripture to our children.

In honor of Mother’s Day, I’d like to share a simple (not exhaustive) list of books that we have found especially helpful and enjoyable to our family over the years.  May God bless your obedience to Him as you raise your children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
