Four Illustrated Books that I’m Giving to My Young Grandchildren this Christmas
For thirty-two consecutive Christmases, I’ve purchased a book for each of my children. Now, I enjoy doing the same for my grandchildren. So, for this year, here’s what I’ve purchased so far. Check ’em out.
God Made Me Unique – This little book introduces young children to the heart of God toward those with special needs and disabilities. Whether or not special needs are part of your family’s life, it’s important to help young children to appreciate the unique way in which God has made each of them. This book is published in partnership with Joni and Friends.
God Made Boys and Girls – In this day of gender confusion, it’s never too early to begin to help young children understand and appreciate the beauty of God’s design of them as a boy or girl.
Why Do We Say “Good Night”? – This is a beautifully illustrated and well written book to help parents and grandparents to reassure children who tend to become fearful at bedtime. The story is a conversation between a mother and her young daughter which revolves around three important, comforting truths about God’s care.
The Moon Is Always Round – My eyes became filled with tears when I first read this book. It’s about the goodness of God at all times, especially in times of suffering. If your family has experienced the death of a loved one, this book will be a useful tool for you.
If you have grandchildren in the toddler-to-elementary school age group, you should take a look at these hardcover gift books. I purchased all four of them from Westminster Books.
