Love Made | Quina Aragon

When reading a picture book about the creation of the world, one doesn’t expect to make it a third of the way through the book before God actually creates anything. But Quina Aragon’s book Love […]

30 Prophecies: One Story | Paul Reynolds

While we’re living lives close to home—perhaps homeschooling kids we hadn’t planned on homeschooling or filling time with toddlers but without libraries—please feel free to comment below or email me (thea@littlebookbigstory.com). I would love to […]

Jesus and the Really Big Surprise | Randall Goodgame

Psalm 23 | Barry Moser

Of all the psalms, this one feels most familiar. This is the one I recite to myself when I can’t fall asleep, the one I’ve taught my daughters to recite to themselves when they can’t […]

Golly’s Folly | Eleazar & Rebekah Ruiz

Some of the best parts of Scripture feature unsavory elements. Adultery, for example. Prostitution. Murder. And because those passages tend toward the unsavory, they don’t often get shared with children. Maybe that’s as it should […]
