Wonderful Find !

15 Jan

Christian Ed Books for KidsSo I stopped by my local library today and checked in the children’s section. They have a box by the children’s librarian’s door with free books and magazines they will eventually throw-away if no one grabs them. I’m all for giving unwanted children’s books a home!

Today I found 11 short paperback books published by The Westminster Press as part of their “Christian Faith and Life” series which is billed as a “program for church and home.” All of them appear to be from the 1950s and 60s and are illustrated in that classic 60s style art. I’m guessing the books are aimed at children in the 8 to 12 year-old age range. On top of everything else, they’re all in very good condition!

I have to say, after a brief skimming of a few of them, the theological concepts I found are clear and very well presented for children. Today’s churches could use these books!

I’ll try to share more of the contents with you as I have the chance to go through them.

    I dive into our library’s freebie box as well. Old books,especially kids books, are the best. It’s obvious you are a Book Booster. Check out my Book Booster page and consider joining the roll call of other book aficionados. No dues, but I am working on a secret handshake.
    Happy Pages,

      Thanks for stopping by! I’ll gladly join your Book Boosters if I can figure out how to put my name on the list. Afraid I’m a techno-dork. I’ll contact the Ministry of Silly Walks to see if Cleese may have something you can use!

      Blessings of the Day to you!
