I often think about reading, because I am a book lover. Anyone else? It’s particularly at this time of year that I think about my kids and their reading. Spring break is coming, and I’d love them to spend time reading books instead of constantly on a screen. (They may beg to differ.) It’s also almost Easter and I enjoy buying my kids a new book for their Easter baskets and am always on the look for new titles.
This week I thought I’d share some of the books we enjoy at our house. They may give you some spring break inspiration or a gift idea.
What Do You Do With an Idea? by Kobi Yamada: This is one of those books where the moral of the story isn’t only for kids, it’s for adults too. It speaks into our creativity and the importance of acting on the ideas we’ve been gifted. We also enjoy the other corresponding books to this title, What Do You Do With a Problem? and What Do You Do With an Opportunity?
The Action Bible: God’s Redemptive Story: My son absolutely loves this book. He finished it in just a few weeks. I caught him staying up late every night after bed to read it. It’s Bible stories in the format of a graphic novel, which is a very popular genre for kids right now.
Brave Heroes and Bold Defenders and Courageous World Changers by Shirley Raye Redmond: Each of these books chronicles 50 true stories of daring men and 50 daring women of God. The stories are inspiring and written in a way that inspires kids (and parents) to become people of fearless faith.
Together: A Journal for Mom and Me by Kara-Kae James: My friend wrote this journal and it’s a great way for moms to interact with their kids. It contains journaling sections, activities, crafts and recipes.
Indescribable: 100 Devotions About God and Science by Louie Giglio: This devotional teaches kids about the amazing things God created. You’ll learn about plants, animals, space, and weather in easy-to-read devotions that point kids to God and His amazing power, revealed through creation.
Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids by Sarah Young: This is a great kids version of the popular adult book. Each daily devotion is written from the perspective of God speaking and contains a main Bible verse, with additional verses you can look up together.
