What are your favorite children books? (PLEASE SHARE BELOW) One of my new favorite authors is Max Lucado and let me tell you why.
I was visiting my parents last year, and my son asked me to read him a book. We read a book called THE WAY HOME, PRINCESS STORY. It was a beautiful parallel of how we strayed into the world and how our Father came to rescue us. While a few of the pictures are a bit scary for a young child, the story is right on. It became a favorite of my three year old.
My mom also has a quite a few other children’s books written by Lucado. I noticed in every story that he tied the gospel or an essential Bible lesson to each of them.
Take, for instance, the Wemmicks in his YOU ARE SPECIAL series. These stories teach about a Creator who made us for a reason, Who gave us gifts and Who loves us. These too are favorites of mine.
This same author is famous for his book JUST IN CASE YOU EVER WONDER. This is a great book for new
moms and their babies.
Here are others:
THE BOY AND THE OCEAN
THE OAK INSIDE THE ACORN
YOU ARE SPECIAL
JUST IN CASE YOU EVER WONDER
THE SONG OF THE KING
THE CHILDREN OF THE KING
THE CRIPPLED LAMB
I WISH I HAD A GREEN NOSE
