Friday Favorites: Children's Book

In an attempt to be as cheesy as bloggingly possible, I want to try something else new:

Friday Favorites. I pick the topic, and you tell me your favorite.

Ready?

Children's book.

I'll go first.

The Jesus Storybook Bible.


I know I've posted about it before, but it's well worth repeating. These stories are so beautifully written, that they often bring me (and my friends who've read them as well) to tears. Even if you are not a parent, I think everyone should have this book on the shelf because each page truly does "whisper His name." I've had days where I've literally put aside my ESV and tried to see Jesus through a child's eyes...in color, in simpler words.

This book is exactly what I need on those days. And I guess my 3 year old kinda likes it, too, you might say! Right now, "David and Goliath" is Keagan's favorite story. He says, "Goliath! HA HA HA" (in a low, deep rumble, of course).


I'm just sure that if you'll get your hands on this book, you won't regret it.


Now, it's YOUR turn! This is where those of you who are usually shy and won't comment...CAN!

Peace of Christ to you,

    I read this as a teenager at the insistence of my grandmother. Thought it was really cheesy until I had a child of my own, now I tear up everytime I read it to the girls.

  3. Let Me Hold You Longer by Karen Kingsbury. OMG it is such a beautiful book, I cry every time I read it. Not really the kids favorite but I make them let me read it to them when I am feeling really mushy. I think every parent should own this one. And I know that the kids will adore it when they are older.
