Three Good Books for Kids to Read this Summer

C.S. Lewis’s series about the fantasy world of Narnia begins with this classic book, full of fun characters (fawns and badgers and an evil queen!), suspense, and adventure. Plus, the book is saturated in Gospel themes of love, sacrifice, and resurrection hope.

For kids a little older (ages 9-12), author Andrew Peterson offers this four-volume work about the Igiby children from the world of Aeriwar who get swept into an epic adventure. It's funny, heartwarming, and also includes Gospel themes throughout as well!

This one is great bedtime-story material – a charming picture book set in New York City about three kids and their three pet goldfish. The author (Sally Lloyd-Jones) also wrote The Jesus Storybook Bible – one of the best kids story Bibles available.


Need a few other options? Try:

  • God Counts, a picture book by Irene Sun (and try not to tear up at the end!).

  • The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece (and prologue to The Lord of the Rings).

  • The Green Ember, by S.D. Smith (the first in a series of four about heroic rabbits – plus, there are two spinoff trilogies).

Kids at TCC also have been challenged this summer to read the Gospel of Mark in the Bible! Find a reading schedule at
