Recommendations for your young ones

This weekend, I discovered a couple of books and CD’s I think some of you will love, especially the ones with small children or grandchildren.

The Jesus Storybook Bible, Read-Aloud Edition: Every Story Whispers His Name



Not long ago, our son Barnabas said Sally Lloyd-Jones’ The Jesus Storybook Bible is “the best biblical theology for young or old.”


Big Stories for Little OnesSally also wrote a collection of 10 Bible stories for very young Baby's Hug-a-Biblechildren. Baby’s Hug-a-Bible was the inspiration for the new album Big Stories for Little Ones by Rain for Roots, four musical mothers of young children: Sandra McCracken, Ellie Holcomb, Flo Paris, and Katy Bowser.


Slugs & Bugs & LullabiesWhen Talitha and I were at Andrew Peterson‘s concert on Friday, she told me that she knows every word of every song on Slugs & Bugs & Lullabies, because when she visited our friends the Rigneys for a few days, it was on continuous play for their boys. That’s a high recommendation, as far as I’m concerned, that a mom can hear the same songs over and over all day and set it to play again the next day . . . and the next . . . and the next.

Slugs & Bugs & Under WhereAnd who can resist such an intriguing title. There’s another one too, with an even more clever title–Slugs & Bugs & Under Where.

  1. Excellent stuff. Love them all!

  2. Our kiddos love Slugs and Bugs. Our almost 9 yr old even sings along. The Under Where album also has a nice adoption song on it.

  3. We love the Big Picture Story Book Bible. While I like the Jesus Storybook Bible, I feel it is a little too poetic at times… with all the neverending, never stopping, etc language. But I do still like it. I just prefer the Big picture storybook bible. Also, as our kids our a little older (late preschool/early elementary), we have LOVED Long Story Short, and soon to come out Old Story New for family bible time. The kids Bible Gospel Story book bible is our fav right now.

  4. Wow! Great books… I hope and pray that God will grant us kid so I can also share books like those to him/her… ^__^ You and a lot more godly women are training me in this new journey I have – now as a wife…

    God bless you…
