A Good Look at Books

helping parents fulfill their calling to spiritually nurture their children

Don’t Forget the Three P’s: God’s Promises, God’s People, and God’s Plan of Salvation

The English-speaking world is filled with books for kids. How to choose? The short answer of what we look for in kid’s books is this:

If the book holds out God’s Promises to kids, does it somehow explain that these promises are for God’s People, and tell God’s Plan of Salvation so that the kids can know how they can become God’s People so these Promises can be for them?

Christian books love to hold out God’s Promises to kids, but I have found many times that writers are not clear that the promises are for God’s People and/or fail to tell how to become one of God’s People. As you look at a book, look for these three elements. If they are not there, you can add them in through your dialogue with the child as you use the book.

Resource Lists from CHBC

CHBC holds an annual “Good Look at Books” event for their families. These include a workshop and a display of books for kids, babies through high school, and their parents. We try to update this list each year with new books to the market. In the pdf below you will find articles based off of our workshop as well as two booklists. One booklist is called “Old Favorites, New Finds” and includes what’s new to the market and all time favorites.  The other list includes all the books that made it onto our “God’s Promises, God’s People, God’s Plan” cut list. Books in English and Spanish. There are remarks interspersed through the lists about certain books that we include but have some reservations about. These notes may teach you a lot! Typically, the new booklists will be updated in October.

We have tried to choose the books carefully, but it’s a lot of books and only a few of us. Never take off your discernment hat for God’s truth and for what it best for your particular children. 

Praise Factory Music

music woven throughout the curriculum

Music is one of the most powerful memory tools God has given us. Anything set to music is more quickly learned and more likely to be retained–even into adulthood. By setting the Praise Factory Bible concepts and verses to music, children (as well as adults!) hold on to the very truths we are trying to teach them.

There’s lots of music and a lot to learn about Praise Factory music:

  • A section for the music from each of the three curriculums
  • An article explaining why the big difference between the ESV and NIV songs (quantity and quality)
  • And, a few, extra music collections you might enjoy

All mp3’s and sheet music are free to download
