Our resource recommendation this week is for the Lightkeepers book series
You can find them at any Christian book store or online here: https://www.thegoodbook.co.uk/children/lightkeepers/
What is it?
Easy to read books that tell the life stories of Christian’s who made a difference throughout history.
Who is it for?
These books are aimed at readers who are 7 – 12 years old.
What can I find there?
When we run our assemblies in schools, we often find that children love to hear stories of Christians in recent history. They capture their imagination in a very special way, so much so that we’ve still had children talk about them months afterwards. These books are full of those real life stories, of boys and girls who grew up to do amazing things for God.
Each book contains 10 biographies of boys or girls and focuses on a different area – such as using talents, making a difference or not giving in. These make them full of great role models and a helpful springboard into discussions about recent Christian history and what trusting God can look like in our modern lives. They are especially relatable for children as they tell each story from childhood and explore how each person grew into the adult they later became.
I love these books and read them myself as a young teenager. They introduced me to many Christian’s from history that I still look up to today and will read about for encouragement in my own faith journey. I hope that any child who reads this series will have a similar experience!
