Hello, and welcome to our newsletter – filled this time with all the info you need to find the perfect Christian books for the children on your heart!
We’re all short of time at this time of year (24 days until Christmas, yikes!)… so what I’m going to do in this post is write a quick idea of who each of our books is suitable for, so you can pick the absolute perfect book for each one of your readers.
Young people deserve to hear the good news – and story is a wonderful way to share it… so let’s dive straight in:
Perfect for 8-11s who love history, and any child who is going through separation from loved ones (Ben’s dad and brothers go off to war.)
For 10-14s from a deprived background who feel stuck. Jess’s dad drinks, but she finds new life.
For 8-11s who suffer from anxiety, night terrors and panic attacks, whose fears control their lives. Abi begins to find light in her darkness and a freedom she never thought possible.
For teen girls needing to make good choices about friends and relationships. For those who have made mistakes, assurance that there’s always grace and a way back.
For 10-14s who are angry about life being unfair, and those who are bullied.
For 8-11s who feel that life can be very unfair, and those who are not looked after by their biological parents.
For 8-11s. We don’t always get what we want, but God knows best. Encourages friendships and respect with others from different backgrounds.
The Beech Bank Girls Series
Through all the storms and joys of life, God is working out his purposes. Loads of issues are covered in these fun stories, including body image, relationships, step-families, grief and loss…and much more.
Every Girl Has a Story: God-given friendships are vital to see us through the storms of life.
Making a Difference: We don’t have to wait until everything is right to make a difference – we can make a difference right where we are.
Christmas is Coming! The girls find out the true meaning of Christmas through a string of disasters!
A Time Remembered: Through loss and sorrow, and also the joys of life, God does not change.
For 10-14s for whom life has changed dramatically and suddenly. Maria, Emily and Arthur have to come to terms with a new reality when London is bombed by terrorists.
For teens who need to make good life choices. Even when everything goes wrong, there is forgiveness, light, life and hope… and a new start. Ideal for giving away at churches.
For teens and twenties. Encouragement for the future. Even during times of great darkness, oppression and persecution, God is still building his church. Gripping.
For 6-8s beginning to think about faith, prayer and trust for themselves. A first chapter book. Ideal bedtime story!
For 6-8s new to reading chapter books. Brilliant for any who feel lonely, to assure them that God knows our needs, before we even ask him.
For disaffected 10-14s who struggle with life, authority, and boundaries.
For 8-11s who love their friends and shoes! While out on adventures with her magic shoes, Emily Jane makes lots of friends, and discovers that she needs to ask Jesus into her life.
There are Discussion Questions for all our books on the website, so you can read them all together and make the most of every opportunity to talk about all the issues brought up by the stories – sharing your faith and building your relationship at the same time! Make this a holiday to count.
And if you’re looking for quantities for a group, let us know and we can sort something out for you.
Oh, and there’s a whole box of Christian books for families if you’re looking for a fabulous gift for a family who have several children 6+ but could no way afford to buy books for themselves… read more about that opportunity here.
Right, I must go – happy choosing! Let me know if you need any more help for a particular child on your heart. Always glad to help. 🙂
Every blessing for this precious time of advent,
P.S. You might also find loads of good deals at your local Christian bookshop, so do check there first – even if they haven’t got the books you want in stock, they can always order them for you.
