The necessity of theologically sound books

Theologically sound books are a must for me. I love reading books that present the truth of God’s Word in a way that honors Him and stays true to the text. We sometimes forget that our children also need theologically sound books or if we know we need them, we might not know where to start or which authors to trust.

I loved reading to my little children when they were growing up. I wanted them to have books that were fun to read, engaged their imagination, and we read those regularly. But I also wanted them to read about God, learn to trust Him and His Word, and have books that presented the truth about creation, the flood, and other biblical truths without worrying that they might be led astray. Theologically sound books were a must for me as a mother. This was true, not just for my younger children but also for my older children and youths.

If you are searching for these sorts of books, you are in the right place. You can find most of the books that I am recommending here along with some other ones. If you are searching for theologically sound books for older children, check out this page. Below I’ll list some of the favorites, the ones we used when my children were little.
