6 Christian Children’s Books You Will Love

Like many parents, I want to read quality literature to my children. When it comes to Christian literature for kids,  it can be hard to find books that compare to the classic literature that we love. That is why I was excited to discover six children’s books that contain excellent stories and beautiful illustrations that delight my children’s imaginations.

Christian Children’s Books by R.C. Sproul

The first three books are written by R.C. Sproul, a gifted theologian and Bible teacher. In these books, he takes concepts that are often difficult for even adults to grasp and makes them accessible to children.

My all time favorite children’s book is The Priest with Dirty Clothes. In this book, children will learn the concept of imputation and justification. A helpful section at the end aids parents in discussing the truths found in this book.

Another great story by R.C. Sproul is The Prince’s Poison Cup. This story is an allegory that helps teach the concept of atonement. This book also includes a section at the end for parents.

One more favorite from R.C. Sproul is The Barber Who Wanted to Pray. Children learn how to pray simple yet meaningful prayers through the story of a barber and his encounter with Martin Luther.

Christian Children’s Books by Paul L. Maier

These last three books are some of my children’s favorite stories. They bring to life historical events that are important to our Christian faith.

Martin Luther: A Man Who Changed the World, recounts the life of Martin Luther, a sixteenth century monk, who helped start the Protestant Reformation. My family enjoys reading this book in October as we celebrate Reformation Day on October 31.

A wonderful book to read during Christmas time is, The Very First Christmas. It’s the story of a mother retelling the events of Jesus’ birth to her son. The young boy is full of questions about the Christmas story and as his mother answers his questions, readers are made aware of many misconceptions regarding the birth of Christ.

A similar book is, The Very First Easter, which tells the story of the death and resurrection of Jesus. Through the book, children will learn many facts about the very first Easter.
