When my kids were young, we read two books to them every night before bed. Now that they’re teenagers, they still talk about some of those stories, which proves to me that books are not only a great way to bond with our children, but a wonderful way to impress important messages upon our kids. Some of the books my kids still talk about are:
Alice in Bibleland
Dr. Seuss (pretty much all of them)
The Berenstain Bears
In a rcent interview, I was asked if I had a favorite children’s book. I answered that The Runaway Bunny is my absolute favorite and chokes me up every time I read it. It is a picture of how God loves and pursues me, even when I try to run or hide or ignore Him. He never gives up on the chase.
So what about you? What is your favorite children’s book? And what makes it so special?
