From the Librarian’s Shelf: Five books in the church library for Children (Part 1)

Posted on 30 Jun 2023

It is important that the children in our church develop a love for learning about God and to be able to have trust in God’s promises which are always true. To help encourage this, the Librarians have shortlisted several books suitable for preschool children in our church library collection.

1. Did God Learn His ABCs? by Amy Gannett

The book’s engaging, rhyming text and bold, delightful illustrations make God’s omniscience (His all-knowing nature) understandable, relatable, and applicable for kids. Young readers will close the book knowing there’s no need to hide their sins, questions, or dreams from God – for He already knows everything about them.

Also in this series:

2. A Time for Everything by Susie Poole

Life is full of opposites – happy and sad, noisy and quiet. A Time For Everything uses simple text and beautiful artwork to help prepare children for the ups and downs of life and natural rhythm of these things. Based on the well-known verse in Ecclesiastes, these delightful pages introduce children to key Bible concepts.

Also in this series:

3. Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers: The Trinity by Joey Allen

The most foundational teachings of the Christian faith are presented in the Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers series at a level preschool and primary school children can understand. The Trinity teaches the Christian doctrine that there is one God who exists as three persons. This teaching is important for children to understand because our ideas about God affect every area of our lives.

Also in this series:

4. Noah and the Very Big Boat by Tim Thornborough

Faithful and fun retelling of the story of Noah and the flood for children 2-4 years old, showing how God saves his people and always keeps his promises.

Part of the Very Best Bible Stories series which includes:

5. The Storm That Stopped: A True Story About Who Jesus Really Is by Alison Mitchell

Based on the account of Jesus calming the storm from Mark chapter 4, this dramatic storybook will teach children about who Jesus really is, as they witness his power over nature. This book is perfect for children aged 3-6 years old.

Part of the “Tales that Tell the Truth” series.
