The Faith Builders Bible, NIrV uses the popularity of brick-building pieces to engage children with the Word of God. Includes 24 full-color pages of illustrations plus the complete New International Reader's Version (NIrV) of the Bible in a very readable 9-point font size. Includes 24 full-color pages of illustrations of bible scenes played out in bricks!.

Where were the angels when God created the world? 
Why did an angel force a donkey off a road? 
Who did the angels get out of jail twice? 

Young readers will find answers to these and other questions in this exciting storybook, written by bestselling author Allia Zobel Nolan with illustrations by Alida Massari. Angels in the Bible Storybook gives children a fascinating look into how God’s powerful behind-the-scenes helpers interacted with Bible greats from Abraham, Lot, and Gideon to Zechariah, Mary, and Jesus himself, acting as messengers, protectors, warriors, and more. Check out our review on the link above for what we thought about it!

Think, Act, Be Like Jesus cover

Think, Act, Be Like Jesusby Randy Frazee

This 90-Day devotional, written by Oak Hills Church pastor Randy Frazee, is part of the church-wide Believe campaign and encourages children to follow the footsteps of Jesus. Think, Act, Be Like Jesus; A Believe Devotional for Kids shares the message that the more you believe, the more Jesus can change you from the inside out to become the best person you can be.


7 Days of Awesome by  Shawn Byous 

With a Dr. Seuss feel, 7 Days of Awesome rhymes its way through each day of creation and encourages children to ponder God’s wisdom in creating this wonderful world. Accompanied by charming, animated illustrations by Colin Jack, this whimsical read-aloud book will be sure to delight both children and their parents.

7 Days of Awesome  sample 1

This is a cute fun book that will have kids giggling as they learn about the 7 days of creation. It is very much a modern take on Dr Seuss and his Cat in the Hat, as a pair of children are lead thru the days by their Ringmaster, who answer the question of where we all came from, by taking the kids back in time. It's adorable and sweet, and sure to be an instant favorite in your house!
