Books you don't want to miss!
by Becky Emerick
This is a book I wrote for my own children that leads you verse by verse through this beloved Psalm through the eyes of a lamb named Duncan.
by Miriam M. Schoolland
An excellent devotional for children and parents to read together. My parents read this to me as a kid, and I've read it to my children twice. It's theology at their level.

Lamplighter BooksLamplighter is an organization that takes classic, out-of-print books and gives them a second life. These are heart-changing stories that you'll want to re-read to your children every year. Below are my favorites for children.

I highly recommend this book, which tells a compelling tale about fighting our giants inside. My children were brought to tears during a conversation with an old soldier. I highly recommend the full-version, although the picture version does have beautiful illustrations.

What are the consequences of our anger? Follow the life of young Helen as she discovers the tragic effect our anger has on the people around us, as well as the forgiveness that can be graciously given. Warning: my daughters had tears flowing at the end of this book, but the memory of its impact will last a lifetime.
by Christoph von Schmid
This dramatic story creates such a thankfulness for the world around us as we see what it would be like to discover God's creation for the first time. Little Henry, kidnapped and forced to live in a cave for much of his childhood, is mesmerized by everything when he finally emerges. The text is beautiful and inspiring.
by Elizabeth Prentiss
This story illustrates how a contentious child is problematic for the whole family by contrasting two little girls, Golden Thread and Tangle Thread. We read this years ago, and my children still talk about the kind of thread that they are.
