Books Daddy should Read to their Kids

Here are some of my favorite and my daughter’s favorite book that we purchased in Amazon Kindle. One of the things I try to do diligently is to read stories that would strengthen the faith of my kids and make them understand God’s love and plan for them. So I made a top 5 books that my kids love reading:

1. Halfway Herbert – From best-selling author Francis Chan (Crazy Love and Forgotten God) comes a picture book for children 4 to 8. Halfway Herbert never completes anything. Homework remains half done, his room stays only partly clean, and dinner is never finished. Halfway Herbert somehow gets by. But when he tells a half-truth, he learns the importance of honesty and of following God with all his heart.

Through Chan’s trademark teaching and storytelling, children discover what living for God really means. Halfway Herbert offers parents a practical tool for inspiring godly character. Parents will appreciate that Chan, a father of four, understands the character development issues parents face. And fans of his previous books will treasure lessons geared especially for children.

2. Ronnie Wilson’s Gift

A little boy’s attempts to give Jesus a gift teaches him the truth that what he does for others, he does for Jesus.

When Ronnie Wilson learns of Jesus’ sacrifice, he wants to give Jesus a gift in return. But how can he get it to heaven? With each attempt he performs a simple act of service for someone in need, and eventually learns that what is done for the least in God’s kingdom is done for Jesus himself.

In the delightfully illustrated book Ronnie Wilson’s Gift, bestselling author and prolific speaker Francis Chan continues the series of children’s parables he began with Halfway Herbert and The Big Red Tractor.

3. My ABC Bible Verses: Hiding God’s Word in Little Hearts

So far, this is Alyanna and Mika’s favorite book.

With this colorful book, Susan Hunt provides a fun way to help young readers learn about God’s truth. Each letter of the alphabet has a corresponding Bible verse and is accompanied by a story to illustrate the scriptural passage

4. The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name

The Moonbeam Award Gold Medal Winner in the religion category, The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the Story beneath all the stories in the Bible. At the center of the Story is a baby, the child upon whom everything will depend. Every story whispers his name. From Noah to Moses to the great King David—every story points to him. He is like the missing piece in a puzzle—the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together. From the Old Testament through the New Testament, as the Story unfolds, children will pick up the clues and piece together the puzzle. A Bible like no other, The Jesus Storybook Bible invites children to join in the greatest of all adventures, to discover for themselves that Jesus is at the center of God’s great story of salvation—and at the center of their Story too.

5. Berenstein Bears Books

Alyanna and Mika have been collecting Berenstein Bears Books. What is great about Berenstein Bear’s books are its easy to read and it comes with a wonderful lesson.
