We are excited to announce a new opportunity for you and your child to connect and spend time together. Reading with children is important not only for their development but also for their relationship with you. Some benefits include:
- Reading books aloud with children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world.
- Reading books aloud develops language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written Word and connect with God.
- Reading books aloud helps children to understand how to ask questions and grow not only academically but socially and emotionally.
- Reading books aloud as a family builds relationship and brings you and your child closer to one another.
Our Kingdom Kids Book Club offers opportunities for you to order books through Kingdom Kids to share with your family. Sometimes we will include a theme, a parent resource, or just some books that we really feel you would enjoy. If you have suggestions or would like to see something added to our book club please email Laura Taylor, Director of Children’s Ministry at email@example.com. We really hope you enjoy this new addition!
Check back next quarter for a new set of books to purchase for your family.
The Donkey That No One Could Ride “... You will see a young donkey tied there that no one has ever ridden.” Bestselling author Anthony DeStefano begins his creative telling of the beloved Bible story of Christ’s triumphant entry by introducing the young donkey who has yet to realize his important mission. The lowly creature believes he can do nothing noble, but that’s before he meets the Master... Then Jesus said to the donkey, “It’s time that you knew About the great thing That you’re destined to do...” He hears the sad donkey cry, “Just leave me alone and cast me aside. I’m just a poor donkey that no one can ride.” Richard Cowdrey’s colorful illustrations pair beautifully with Anthony’s charming rhymes. Together, they bring this timeless story of the donkey who carries Jesus into Jerusalem to a joyful finish. While especially appropriate as an Easter gift, this year-round story is for all time and for young and old alike.
The Tale of Three Trees Featuring the wonderful illustrations of Tim Jonke, this best-selling children's book tells the Easter story from a new and unusual point of view. Three trees on a mountain dream of what they wanted to become when they grew up. One wants to be a treasure chest, another an ocean-going boat, and the third a signpost to God. Their wishes come true in a way they never expected. Children will be deeply touched as they understand, perhaps for the first time, the significance of Christ's life and his atoning sacrifice on the cross. Recommended for ages 4 and up.
