This section will:

- Tell you about some other resources you might like
Resource List from CHBC Booksale
helping parents fulfill their calling to spiritually nurture their children
A compilation of books for babies through high school aged kids and their parents. Also includes a useful articles in how to use books to encourage your children spiritually. Based off of the book fair held at Capitol Hill Baptist Church annually. Only offered for download because the resources get updated annually. Note about lists: we have tried to vet 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. 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.
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
