Best Resources for Kids
While raising our kids is hard work (and I write about that often like here or here or here), there are a few tricks that can help. One of the absolute easiest of these (in my opinion) is having quality books and resources around to read and share with your children!
Others have been gifted by God to create these resources for the masses so that you can individually use them to springboard into the good quality conversations that only you can have with the kids in your life - whether they be your kids, kids you babysit, or in Sunday School!
These are some of my favorites that I've enjoyed reading with and to my children. Obviously, just because it's here doesn't mean it's perfect or infallible or that you will necessarily love it (and disclaimer, some will have images of Jesus for pedagogical reasons; if that's an issue for you, be sure to check out this page). However, I have only included the books I have, enjoy, and would buy again or gift to friends so I do hope you enjoy them too!

Board Books for Younger Kids
These books are still great to read to older kids.
Other Great Kids Books
These books are still great to have on hand and read to younger kids.
This book makes me cry! It’s a great story based on Psalm 23.
I use The Ology in almost every one of my Children’s Catechism posts - it’s that good!
Both of the Susan Hunt ABC Bible Verse books provide great resources to memorize verses and give real life examples of how kids can internalize truth.

Bibles and Bible Study Tools
In addition to these, if possible, I highly reccommend playing songs in your home that you sing in your church service even though they aren't neccessarily "kids" music.
That way your kids will know those songs and be able to sing along quickly even before being able to read.
