children’s books that celebrate the church calendar

Our church has been centering its worship around celebrating the Christian calendar year. It is a transforming study in that we are learning to see the focus of all of life pointing to the pattern of grace in history and in our daily lives. We can begin to train our children by reading to them and pointing them to books that teach this pattern. Let’s show our children the order of life and the love of Christ. Enjoy these books that follow the church calendar.
