It won’t be too long before Lent begins (Tuesday 5th March is Shrove Tuesday). What about reading a Christian book with your child (or as a family) – a bit every day through Lent this year? Be a great opportunity to draw closer to God together, maybe? Just a thought!
Perhaps you could keep a 40 day journal of what you learn together? It could be a precious keepsake.
If you need a recommendation of a book for a specific issue, let us know. Otherwise, why not start with I Want to Be an Airline Pilot (lovely family story) or A Pennyworth of Peppermints (set in WWI). If your child struggles with anxiety, Deepest Darkness would be a great choice. If you have girls, The Birthday Shoes is a fun book for 7-10s, or if you have older girls, the Beech Bank Girls are fab for 10+. Boys love The Treasure Hunt and Mystery in the Snow. If you have any recommendations of your own, please leave them in the comments below!
