Today is a bit of a departure for the Bookshelf post. Normally I suggest books that are good for personal study and reflection, but today I'm focusing on gifts...specifically gifts for the children in your life. Whether you're shopping for your own kids or grandkids, neighbors, church friends, or donating to an Angel Tree, these books are sure to delight and help children know the love of Jesus.

I love this book because it's a sweet, simple story of the birth of Christ. It comes in packs of 10, which makes it a perfect stocking stuffer or a gift to hand out at church. This beautiful Christmas book tells the Christmas story found in Matthew and Luke. It includes puzzles, stickers, and a letter to parents.

I was fortunate enough to see a copy of this recently, and the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous! This Bible storybook is sure to delight early readers and older readers alike. This is a colorfully illustrated children's Bible storybook that will engage children through simple storytelling and open-ended questions that encourage children to wonder about the Bible story and make connections between the Bible and their lives. It includes 150 stories!
