Christian biography series for kids

Recommended Posts

I've been looking for Christian biographies to read in the evenings with my kids. I've come across Trailblazers, Christian Heroes then and Now, and Lightkeepers (seem like they may not be real stories, but it's unclear). I'm wondering if folks here can recommend something else or if you can strongly recommend one of these over the others? I'd really like some picture book options as well as short chapter books!

I also like Sinclair Ferguson's Heroes of the Faith books (substantial picture books) and The Church History ABC's, though it is a single book, not a series.

 

There is an old series (oop?) called Heroes of Faith and Courage that is very good. Amazon has some of them. They are substantial picture books, about 50 pp. each. 

 

I find the ywam series to be very uneven. Some are very poorly written, even though the stories are interesting.

I also like Ruth Sanderson's Saints and More Saints (I like Saints slightly better). They are picture books, but with a lot of vocabulary...we go over all the new words, and then I read them aloud (to my 6 and 8 year old).

We've been reading the YWAM series for years now. I wouldn't say the writing is stellar, but they're good and the kids enjoy them and it does keep their attention and they learn things.

Here are a few my children have enjoyed not many picture books but good ones:

Ages 1-10+

Uncle Arthur's Bedtime Stories (not Biographies, but all true stories of how God worked in kids lives) have pictures

 

Ages4+

Missionary Stories with the Millers (some stories may bother sensitive children), Mildred Martin

I Heard Good News Today  by Cornelia Lehn

 

Older children/ read alouds (sensitive children may not do well with some sections)

God's Ambassadors  ISBN 1-58660-131-8

Christian Heroes : Then & Now series   (we have quite a few of these and they are well done)
