The “in-between” years can be interesting, to say the least! Your children seem to fluctuate between being a young child and trying to act like a teenager. Their world is expanding – even when it comes to books. They know what they like, but they’re still willing to try new types of books. Whether its fiction story books, kids mystery books, realistic fiction books, a short story book, science fiction, the “classics”, or even a comic book, there’s a whole world of children’s story books to explore.
Since these years are so important in developing a child’s character, we’ve included a variety of Christian childrens books that teach biblical values and life lessons. You’ll also find many popular children’s books and series that keep readers coming back for more. And you’ll find biographies, historical fiction, and books on creationism that enhance what they are learning in school.
We also recommend that you don’t give up on reading aloud to your children even though they can read on their own. This not only enhances listening skills, but provides an opportunity for family time in our fast-paced world. Sharing a good book that carries a good message and models strong character qualities helps you instill family values that will form a solid foundation as they grow up.
