The Garden, The Curtain and The Cross

This beautiful hardback Bible storybook for 3-6 year olds takes children on a journey from the Garden of Eden to God’s perfect new creation. It is a gospel presentation that focuses on the significance of the temple curtain. God said “because of your sin you can’t come in”, but the moment the curtain tore in two, everything changed.

Children will learn that Jesus breaks down the barrier of sin between us and God so that we can enjoy him for ever.

Stunningly illustrated by Catalina Echeverri, author and illustrator of several bestselling children's books and all the books in the 'Tales that Tell the Truth' series.

Any Time, Any Place, Any Prayer

When children have something on their minds, they tend to run to their parents and caregivers. Wouldn’t it be great if they also learned that they can talk to God about anything and everything because Jesus has made that possible?

This beautifully illustrated Bible storybook, by Risen Motherhood co-founder Laura Wifler, takes children on a journey from the start of the Bible story to the end. From Eden and God’s presence, through the fall, redemption, and the Spirit’s presence with us now, to our presence with God in the future, God has always made a way for his people to talk with him. Children will learn a biblical understanding of prayer, why it’s amazing, and that they can enjoy talking with God about anything, anytime, anywhere.

Includes Jesus’ teaching on the Lord’s Prayer to help children know how to pray.

 

Jesus and The Very Big Surprise

This beautifully illustrated hardback book by well-known singer and TV presenter Randall Goodgame is based on the parable in Luke 12 v 35-38.

It teaches children that Jesus will return, and when he does, there will be an amazing party where... SURPRISE!... he will serve his faithful servants!

Jesus didn’t tell us when that party will be, but we can make sure that we’re ready for it by loving him and loving his people while we wait.

 

The Prisoner, The Earthquake and the Midnight Song

Based on Acts 16, this is a fun and compelling retelling of how a Philippian jailer and his family learned the wonderful truth about Jesus Christ.

Jesus’ ongoing power to save through the spreading of the gospel and through the presence of the Holy Spirit is imaginatively and powerfully brought to life by Bob Hartman.

Jesus and The Lion's Den

Helps children to see the gospel heart of the whole Bible as they discover how Daniel points to Jesus.

The story of Daniel and the Lions' Den teaches children many things... It teaches them about praying; it teaches them about Daniel’s faithfulness to God, and God’s faithfulness to Daniel; and it teaches them that God is the real king of everyone everywhere.

But if you peel back another layer, you’ll see that like the rest of the Old Testament, it also points to Jesus.

This stunningly illustrated retelling of Daniel and the lions' den helps children to see Jesus in the story of Daniel. It challenges children to spot the ‘Jesus moments’ by looking out for the hidden lion symbols. It goes on to explain the parallels between Jesus and Daniel, so that children can see the gospel heart of the whole Bible.

 

The Friend That Forgives

Do you ever talk before you think? Mess up? Let others down?

That’s what Peter did, again and again and again, and it led him to abandoning his best friend, Jesus.

Peter loved Jesus. He felt terrible when he pretended not to know him. He thought all was lost when Jesus died.

But after Jesus rose from the dead, he went and found Peter and forgave him. He explained that his death took the punishment for all of Peter’s mistakes and that his resurrection showed that the penalty was lifted.

Peter spent the rest of his life telling people that if they put their trust in Jesus, they could be forgiven too—again and again and again.

Children know all about failing, but they don’t always experience true forgiveness. This book points them to Jesus, the friend who will forgive them again and again and again.

Wherever You Go, I Want You To Know

Kids love to dream about what they might do when they grow up: jobs they might have, places they might go, people they might meet. And parents and caregivers love to encourage and support them.

But for Christian parents, their greatest aspiration for their children, their dream of all dreams, is that whatever their kids do and wherever they go, they will love and follow Jesus.

As children embark on life’s journey with all their potential and aspirations, express to them your biggest dream with this beautiful illustrated rhyming children’s book.

As well as teaching children about the only thing that really matters in life, this book also reminds parents that telling their kids about Jesus is more important than anything else.

Goodbye to Goodbyes

Teach young children that Jesus came to end goodbyes.

Jesus knew how scary it is when someone gets really sick. He knew how sad it is when someone dies. Jesus cried when his friend, Lazarus, died. But he did something at his friend’s tomb that changed everything. He showed that he came to give his friends life after death.

In this vivid, moving and exciting retelling of the story of Lazarus, Lauren Chandler helps children understand that Jesus came to say goodbye to goodbyes—for ever.

The author, Lauren Chandler, used the story of Lazarus to help her own children in the wake of her husband’s (Matt Chandler) brain tumor. Whether children are coming to terms with the illness or death of a loved one, or simply fearful of when that day might come, this book reassures them with the amazing truth that Jesus came to give his friends life after death.

There's a Lion in My Nativity

This rhyming book with warm, quirky illustrations makes a beautiful Christmas gift for children who are 4-7 years old.

In this story of a Christmas nativity play, Mary thinks she is the star of the show. However, as the play goes on, she finds that every scene has been stolen by an unlikely character or object, such as a tent, a phone and a lion!

With the help of the narrator, Mary realises that each one actually teaches us a profound truth about Jesus. The tent teaches us that Jesus came to live among us humbly; the phone teaches us that Jesus came to connect us to God; and the lion shows us that Jesus is the king of the universe!

Along with Mary, readers will see that Jesus is the true star of the show and that it is wonderful to know him.

But it also shows children that at the heart of the Christmas story is something we should all be quiet and see: God's Son Jesus was born, so that we can be friends with God forever.
