Christian Children’s Books on Audio

I (Janet Wilson) have been recording A New Me for Torch Trust… sorry it’s not a very good photo, but it wasn’t easy taking a selfie with the book and microphone! We are hoping to bring all Dernier books out in audio versions at some point – in the meantime, we are glad children with sight loss can enjoy all our stories in large print, Braille and audio through Torch Trust. Contact us if you’d like more details. Janet Wilson recording A New Me for Dernier Publishing

Light of the World

A bit more of a personal post today. Janet here, founder of Dernier Publishing – thanks for being here!

I helped at our church Glow Party yesterday evening. We gave a Christian children’s book to each of the children who came (about 35, I think). Most were children from the local community, who came dressed up as witches, ghouls and the like. It was good to share the light with them in games, music and stories! Please pray for good seeds to be sown, in their lives, and also in the lives of their parents. Thank you!

Another encouragement as I was giving out the books: one of our own church girls said she’d really enjoyed reading the Beech Bank Girls and The Only Way. Always rejoice when I hear something like that! You just never know how much a Christian book can touch lives. Why not buy a book today and be a blessing to someone?

Today is All Saints Day, and we thank God for all the people who have gone before us, brought us the Word of God in our language, preached and taught the truth, and in some cases given up their earthly lives so we can hear and believe. Now we must do the same for the next generation. 🙂

Christian Books for Young People Going to Christian Bookshops

We are grateful to Christian bookshops all over the UK for stocking our books. Here are some orders ready to go – perhaps they will end up being Christmas presents!

Books to Uganda

Author Clive Lewis took some Dernier books to Uganda recently (The City Kid, I Want to Be an Airline Pilot, Living in Hope and Under the Tamarind Tree). Clive gave the books to Dickens Zziwa, National Director of Scripture Union. SU do a great job taking the good news of Jesus to young people all over Uganda, so the books will be well used. Delighted to see our books reaching places we can not go! Working together in the Kingdom of God is a huge privilege. If you pray, you are part of it, too – how awesome is that? (With thanks to Florence Lewis for the lovely photos.)Dickens Zziwa and Clive Lewis!)

Dyslexia friendly books

A New Me is dyslexia friendly – see how easy it is to read? We would like to update all our books, eventually, to this style, to make them as accessible as we can to as many readers as possible. Most of our books are also available to large print and Braille in the UK. Please contact us for more details. 🙂

One easy way to build up your relationship with your children

One way you can develop a rich relationship with your children is to read stories together. Mums and Dads, get involved! Talk about the issues the characters face… in this way you can get to understand what your children are thinking/feeling, and you get a chance to share your own wisdom.

Mum reading with children

This book (Living in Hope), tells the story of Sam, who is falsely accused of stealing, and Frida, who is tricked into becoming a domestic servant… when the children get her home, they throw a ‘prodigal’ party. Inspirational, educational, and great fun!

Living in Hope, and the other two books in the series, are available as paperbacks or as an ebook (available worldwide on the Amazon kindle store). Click on the links for more info, or to buy this lovely book for yourself.

Kindle ebooks

All our books (except for the brand new one, A New Me) are available as ebooks on Amazon’s kindle store. So now you can read any book you like anywhere you like in the world. 🙂 Why not read the stories to your children –  and be inspired yourself while you read. 🙂 Just search for the title on Amazon and you will find it!
