As a parent, I am always on the lookout for good, solid, biblically based books for my kids. I don’t recommend anything on this site that I don’t personally believe in. I wanted to bring to your attention four great little books for teaching kids some o f the deeper truths about God and Christianity. The Big Thoughts For Little Thinkers series by Joey Allen consists of four different books:
- The Gospel
- The Mission
- The Scripture
- The Trinity
I started with “The Trinity” book because I was interested to see how that complex topic was dealt with for kids. I was not disappointed. These books handle their topics in a doctrinally sound manner but written in such a way that kids can understand. The illustrations are also superb! I also appreciated the scripture references on virtually every page to support what is being taught.
Christianbook.com describes the series this way:
“The Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers series introduces preschool and elementary children to the most foundational teachings of the Christian in this four-book set at a level they can understand. Colorful illustrations compliment every page, creating an enjoyable learning experience for the child. The Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers series promotes God-centered theology with simple and precise teaching while offering stability and a strong, lasting connection with the faith.”
Although these books are marked as being for kids ages 4 to 7, I know from personal experience that my 2 year old loves to hear these books and look at the pictures. My 6 year old asks is we can read one almost every night, and my 8 year old likes to read them. To be perfectly honest, as a 37 year old, I like them myself too! If you have kids or work with kids, I would encourage you to check out this series!
I’ve included pictures of the covers along with the description of each book from Christianbook.com and a link to Christianbook.com below.
The Mission presents God’s worldwide plan to call people from every nation to worship Him through Jesus Christ. God invites children to share His good news with a world of people who desperately need a Savior. Recommended for ages 4 to 7.
The Gospel relates a gospel message of salvation to children, at their level of understanding, planting seeds that will hopefully blossom into a Christian life of dedication to our Savior and Lord. Recommended for ages 4 to 7.
The Scripture teaches children that the Word of God is true, inspired, reliable and profitable to lead them to God and a life of godliness. This book is a tool to help youngsters find wisdom that leads to salvation, guidance for everyday living and hope for the future through the Bible.Recommended for ages 4 to 7.
The Trinity teaches the doctrine that there is one God who exists in three persons–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This teaching is foundational for a child’s understanding of God; and helps children relate rightly to each member of the godhead. A fact about the Trinity is presented on each page, leading the child to a stronger faith.
