Children’s storybooks to go along with your Bible lessons

Do you sometimes find it difficult to explain bible lessons to your young child?

Sometimes, bringing across what it means to have faith, self-control or love isn’t easy. I have found it easier to share the lessons with accompanying story books. This is to complement the bible stories we have read during the week.

Here are some of the books we have enjoyed and are easily available in the libraries.
