    A Young Woman’s Guide to Discovering Her Bible takes a personal approach: Elizabeth George speaks directly to the reader, mentoring her in a discipleship approach. Bible study methods and practices are interwoven with studying women “mentors” from the Bible, with extra emphasis placed on the Godly (and practical) characteristics of the Proverbs 31 woman. Ten chapters emphasize study, Biblical character and the Holy Spirit’s guidance to become more like Jesus.

    Contains text intermixed with fill-in questions that guide you naturally through the process; study and practice are equally emphasized; and each contains tools in the appendices to build spiritual training habits including reminders for Bible study, a Bible Reading Plan, and a Quiet Times Calendar. Approx. 200 pp, sc.

    Finally, a large print Bible for young readers! One of the best pieces of advice I received in my early days of homeschooling was to have a large print Bible for my young children. The point was made that young children may focus better on their reading skills without having to strain to read the small text, making Bible reading less intimidating and more enjoyable. Within the pages of this Bible, you will find a "Getting to know Jesus" question and answer section, introductions and outline of contents for each book of the Bible, 14 full color illustrations, eight Bible reading helps, eight full color maps, a dictionary, double column text and a list of one hundred fifty Bible stories. The NIrV is based upon the NIV and contains shorter sentences, simplified text and consistent use of names (eg: Sea of Galilee is used throughout NT, rather than the interchangeable names Sea of Gennesaret and Sea of Tiberias). Here is a sample from the NIrV, "God has breathed life into all Scripture. It is useful for teaching us what is true. It is useful for correcting our mistakes. It is useful for making our lives whole again. It is useful for training us to do what is right." 2 Timothy 3:16. 8 1/2"x 5 ½" 2042 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

Arnold is deeply inspired by Wycliffe, and young readers will learn about this influential man as Arnold and his friends work to protect him from spies. Will they be able to save him and his English translation of the Bible from the enemies he's made from speaking the gospel?

    This is a great book for introducing younger children to the moving and powerful stories from the Bible. In a storybook format, it takes the reader through Genesis to Revelation, showing how the Bible is one big story about God and His plan for the world. The stories are paraphrased and written so young children can understand them and what they mean. They are surprisingly insightful and will captivate kids while they learn more about God and become familiar with Bible stories. Full-color pages feature illustrations of the stories, and the book is great for reading out-loud or for slightly older kids to read independently. Measures 6.5" x 7.75" and is about an inch thick. 352 pgs, hc.

    Written to a second grade reading level, this book by Karyn Henley presents the Bible in 365 slices, designed to take about 7 minutes each to read. Presented in a chronological format, you'll find David's psalms in line with the stories about his life they refer to, as well as the consolidation of the New Testament so that your child encounters a single story of Jesus and the 1st century church which followed His resurrection. Genealogies, detailed laws, and repetitive passages have been excluded to keep your child's interest. With the readings being as short as they are, this is a great resource to establish a daily Bible time with kids. ~ Tom

Fans of that series will recognize the “Jesus Calling” portion included with every other Bible story—yet these are written on a child’s level. These sections are written as though God is speaking to the reader. The entire storybook’s focus is to show that Jesus is central to the Bible and also should be central to our lives. Stories are based on the NIV Bible and illustrated with gorgeous, vibrant, stylized drawings. 46 Old Testament stories and 49 New Testament stories follow Biblical order (book and verse references provided). Includes a presentation page, attached bookmark ribbon and embossed cover. 7” x 8 ¼”, 256 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

    Most bible story books are geared toward young readers, but children of all ages still enjoy being told a good story. Written for older elementary and middle school students, this book uses the International Children's Bible to provide an authentic retelling of God's message. Beginning with Genesis and ending with the new heaven and Earth described in Revelation, students will learn about the character and glory of God.

    Each of the stories begins with a short introduction and concludes with a concise prayer. Along with the stories are "Going Deeper" activities which incorporates a scriptural reading and "Do it" activity to reinforce the lesson. Let me share from "The Good Samaritan" from Luke 10:25-37. After the one page reading, the prayer focus is thankfulness for blessings we have and for open eyes to see the needs around us. In the Going Deeper section, children are encouraged to read Matthew 5: 43-48 and answer the question "How can you be a good neighbor?" The Do It activity is to "think of something you can do to help a 'neighbor' in need. Collect cans of food for the hungry or shampoo and soap for the homeless shelter."

    An abundance of graphics and a comprehensive index makes this a wonderful resource for pleasure reading or family read aloud. HC. 410 pgs. ~Deanne

    Curious by nature, Adara is not content with the docile lifestyle she is expected to live as a young Hebrew girl. She longs to have the same freedoms as the men folk. She daydreams of learning to read and write, a privilege offered only to Jewish boys. More than anything though, she yearns to travel outside the confines of the gated village where she lives with her family. To Adara, life is as predictable as the turning of a wheel. That is until one morning, with the blast of a trumpet, life as Adara knows it changes forever. Note: This is a fictionalized telling of the story of Naaman and Elisha, found in Kings II, Chapter 5. There is some rough language scattered throughout. You may wish to "censor" with a marker before handing this one over to your younger readers. ~ Rachel P.

    Now in its 4th edition, Gladys Hunt's book has encouraged thousands of families to reap the benefits of quality literature. Gladys wrote Honey for a Child's Heart to help others experience the same influence that reading books both separately and together has had on her family. In the first section of this book, she offers advice on "using books to help children grow." Through the chapters in this section she emphasizes the way that quality literature affects children, provides tips on raising a reader, helps you learn how to select good books and stories for your children, and discusses the merits of reading aloud together. She also explores in depth the question "What Makes a Good Book?" and discusses fantasy vs. realism and poetry before talking about the influences on your children from various sources. Gladys also provides a chapter in this section encouraging family Bible reading, warmly sharing on how to integrate it into your daily life and why it is so important. The second half of this volume, aptly sub-titled "Books your children should have the opportunity to enjoy," features lists of quality literature for different age levels and interests. These lists are organized by author and then title with brief descriptions of each book. Thirteen chapters recommend books for children age 0-3; picture book classics and more favorite picture books for 4-8 year olds; first books for beginning readers, classic children's novels, more great books for intermediate readers, stories for animal lovers, historical novels, and fantasy novels, all geared towards 9-12 year olds; young adult novels for ages 12-14; and worthwhile poetry, Bible and Christian truths storybooks, and books for special occasions. 251 pgs. ~ Steph

    The study of Ancient Egypt is a treat for young and old alike. Where else in history do you find gigantic pyramids, perfectly preserved mummies, cat goddesses, and linen kilts? I know I can't resist a good book about Ancient Egypt, and when I came across this one, I was intrigued both by the content and also by the fact that it's published by Master Books, a Christian publisher most well-known for their creation science materials. I knew I was really in for a treat! Not only is this book absolutely gorgeous, but most importantly for believers, it strives to give a more accurate chronology by using the historical records that all writers on Ancient Egypt use, plus the Hebrew Bible. This gives us a more complete picture of the ancient world as a whole and how the Egyptian culture (which did not exist in isolation) interacted with other cultures. This book takes readers on a tour of Ancient Egypt chronologically, from the first dynasty to the last dynasties. The first 27 chapters each focus on a dynasty (or a portion of one) and examine the archaeology and other records of the time period to suggest possible dates for important events. The last two chapters bring everything together, focusing on the issue of dating and providing a biblically-based set of dates for Egyptian history. You'll not only get a very complete look at the entire Egyptian civilization, but you'll also find references to biblical accounts as well as discussion on assigning dates using a variety of references. Throughout, the reader is treated to full-color captioned photos of the architecture, artifacts, and art of the times. Each chapter begins with a basic timeline on the dynasty being examined, with traditional dates vs. the authors' suggested revised dates, kings reigning during that time, events in Egyptian history, and corresponding events in biblical history. As a bonus, a DVD is included which features David Down, one of the authors, visiting and discussing the pyramids and the temples. The 86-minute DVD presents similar information as in the book, but with video of the sites and terrific commentary for all those audio learners. Although the whole package is a little bit pricey, this is an awesome resource that will doubtlessly enhance your studies in a whole new way! 221 pgs, hc.

    Here are 46 short stories (8 pages or less for each), specially crafted by Patricia St. John to encourage readers to grow in greater knowledge of God and the principles in His Word.

From God and Jesus to the sacrifice of the cross and the Holy Spirit, to spiritual growth and trusting God – these stories are an encouragement that touch many aspects of our lives. 235 pgs in pb. – Zach

    Learning new things is easier for young students when tied in to a common theme. That's why unit studies are so popular and successful. So what about Galloping the Globe? It's a unit study centered around geography. It encourages a detailed look at a selection of countries from the six populated continents as well as the North and South Poles and Christmas around the world. Using the countries being studied geographically as the basic platform, the authors have included ideas and references, projects and activities for integrating Bible, people/history, science, literature, vocabulary, internet sources, maps & flags, cooking, music/art, games, puzzles, and crafts into the curriculum. An aspect to this unit study which is similar to the Trail Guide to… series is the student notebook approach, where the child will actually produce a notebook full of art projects, reports, biographies, geographic dictionary pages, and much more. This is intended to be something they can show to other people, reinforcing and reviewing what they have learned as they explain various facts to friends and family. This is a fairly flexible course, with a full study of every topic listed taking between two and three years to complete. You can also pick and choose projects to simply make this a year long course. While geography is the main focus of this unit study, it does a good job of including the resources needed to study the other subjects, too. Answers are included and the consumable work pages are reproducible (and are also now found on the included CD-ROM in PDF format, which makes it even easier to use with multiple children). There are several recommended resources which are used multiple times throughout the course. If you are interested in purchasing these, please see below. Items without prices are those that we do not currently carry. The resource list has been recently revised to accommodate for items that were going out of print, and several new resources have been added. This is the newest version, revised in 2010 with a CD-ROM of printable forms, activity sheets, maps and flags. CD is Win/Mac compatible; requires Adobe Reader (a free download). 266 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    The Dragon and the Garden (similar to Milton’s Paradise Lost) retells Adam and Eve’s Fall with a Medieval slant: the serpent is portrayed as a dragon. The artwork is stylized, with muted watercolors. Interesting pictorial elements may trigger family discussion: “prehistoric” creatures are shown in the garden. Designed as a storybook, these could also be read by your stronger young readers; text is ¼” tall. 32 pp, now paperback. ~ Ruth
