Thank you for viewing the Little Book, Big Story book list! I have ordered the books mostly by category, but you’ll find notes beside each title that give you a recommended age range for that book. You’ll also find a note about the book’s format, so you can tell at a glance if it’s a picture book (Pic), chapter book (Ch), anthology (Anth), magazine (Mag), or devotional (Dev).

I update this list roughly four times a year, and when I do, I announce the changes through my email newsletter. If you want to know when I post an update, you can subscribe to the newsletter here.

One other note: this is not a full catalog of every book featured on my site. What it is, rather, is a curated list of my favorite titles, the ones I recommend again and again and love reading aloud to my people.
