Get on my bookshelf!

I love reading to my children and I believe they like me reading to them.  I personally feel it's important to include religious children's books in our collection.  These are a few I hope to add to our bookshelves one day.  Don't they look fantastic for young readers?

1. The Illustrated Parables of Jesus

Selected parables from the Gospels are told in a youthful yet tasteful comic-book style. The simple words and beautiful, brightly colored illustrations will captivate children whether they read the book on their own or with their family.
The book includes a brief introduction to the parables. And each parable is told by Jesus, who is shown telling the tale to his disciples or the crowd as recorded in the Gospels. The Good Samaritan, The Prodigal Son, The Unforgiving Servant, and many more stories are faithfully gathered here to instruct and inspire children ages 4 and up.


The book includes a brief introduction to the background of each situation in which the miracle was performed by Jesus. And each miracle performed by Jesus shows that they brought happiness to the people. They are signs that Jesus acts through love and that he wishes all men to live and be happy. And lessons for us to have confidence in the love of God, and to share that love with others we encounter, as Jesus did.
Miracles include The Wedding at Cana, Raising the Daughter of Jairus, Jesus Walks on Water, Multiplication of the Loaves, The Ten Lepers, Healing of Bartimaeus, Raising Lazarus, and many more.
Ages 4 and up


The adventures of the apostles, as recorded by Saint Luke in the New Testament, are told for young readers with vibrant and expressive four-color, comic-book style illustrations. The simple but engaging text begins where The Illustrated Gospel for Children leaves off - with Pentecost, when the followers of Jesus are transformed by the gifts of the Holy Spirit into heroic witnesses of the Resurrection of Christ. The experiences of the early Church -- the works of mercy, the miraculous healings, and the amazing conversions -- come to life in these seventeen inspiring stories of the faith and courage.


In youthful yet tasteful comic-book style, Jesus comes alive for young readers with vibrant and expressive four-color illustrations and simple but engaging text. The moving story of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus is told in a way young readers will find both attractive and challenging; the Gospel is simplified without losing any of its saving power. "And what about you, who do you say that I am?" 
Ages 6 and up
