6 Best Christian Chapter Books For Kids Update 05/2022

At summer, one of my favorite things is reading to my kids. I like to snuggle on the couch with my friends as we read the next chapter and talk about what we can learn from it. In the past, I have been looking for good Christian chapter books with a message of faith. There are some great, classic books out there. We know a few, and I’ve written about one of them below. I asked some friends and their kids to tell me which ones they liked and why. I’ve put together a great list, and I can’t wait to read some of them myself. Happy reading!

The Swamp Robber (Sugar Creek Gang, Book 1) By: Paul Hutchens

By Taylor Johnson, Taylor Johnson, Taylor Johnson, Taylor Johnson. Taylor Johnson, 8, and Taylor Johnson, 6. 5 to 10 (geared towards boys) A person can read from 7 to 12. (boys)

You can start by telling us a little about this book series. It’s a 36-book series about a young boy’s “gang” of friends who live in a small Indiana town in the 1950s. The books are written from the point of view of a young boy. The boys have a lot of fun and learn more about why they need Jesus and how important it is to share their faith with others.

What good things will your kids learn from this book?
Some of these books are about friendship and integrity and how to treat people with respect and love your enemies. They also show how Jesus can change a person’s life for the better and how to share your faith with others. It’s important to know if this book has any bad messages in it. If so, what are they.

Some of the adventures might be a little scary for younger kids, like when a bear attacks and a group of mean boys fight. One character’s father has alcoholism, so the book talks about this and also shows alcohol in a bad light. We used this topic as a way to teach our kids about alcohol and how we feel about it.

How has this book helped your children grow in their faith?
Children have heard the gospel many times through these books. I think they have grown in their desire to trust Jesus as their Savior and live for Him no matter what, just like the boys learn to do.

The best thing about this book series is what I like about it the most. A boy’s point of view and a way that kids can understand make these books great. In this book, the main character has real problems, questions, and learns a lot of important things. My kids and I have a lot of great conversations because we talk about these things.

I think it is very interesting.” Things that I didn’t expect start to happen. Often, things aren’t what they seem to be. I love how the cousins’ faith and desire to help others make them feel like they’re on a journey. I also love that kids don’t feel like they are being “taught.”

The Prince Warriors By: Priscilla Shirer

By Hannah Yau and Rachel, who are both 11 years old. 5-12: Read aloud

Individual reading: 8 to 12 years old. Tell us a little about this book series, and we’ll be more interested in it. When my 11-year-old daughter saw the characters and their many adventures into the world of Ahoratos, she fell in love. Each time a character arrives, they are met by a purple creature named Ruwach. Ruwach helps each warrior get the right amount of armor for the next part of their journey. If you have faith as small as a seed, nothing will be impossible for you. “The Book” also tells warriors what to do. Their missions take them to new places, where they save other warriors, get special items, and fight ents, olethrons, and forgers (all who battle on behalf of the evil Poneros). warriors learn how to use their armor better on each trip. They also learn to trust their guide and the words from “The Book.”

What good things will your kids learn from this book?
My daughter was excited to read about how to make “The Book,” and to learn about the armor. Then, at one point, she looked up, her eyes wide open. She said, “These are all things from the Bible!” It’s important to know if this book has any bad messages in it. If so, what are they. It doesn’t say anything bad, but you should know that the characters are attacked and chased by imaginary creatures from the realm, even in their own world. When you read this series, you’ll find stories about betrayal. You’ll also find stories about losing your faith, and stories about how humans feel.

How has this book helped your children grow in their faith?
My daughter, Rachel, says, “I learned more about the armor of God and how God helps us stay safe.” The best thing about this book series is what I like about it the most. During their time on Earth, they keep the lessons that they learn in mind. It all comes back home when they realize that there are a lot of other prince and princess warriors in their neighborhood. They have built up courage, faith in doing the right thing, and trust in each other and the source of their strength. What is the thing about this book series that you don’t like the most?
Rachel says the cover of the book isn’t very interesting, and it looks like it’s for boys.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (The Chronicles of Narnia) By: CS Lewis

This is a review by Caroline Melton, a mother of two boys who are 5 and 7 years old. Read aloud: Five and up. Nine and up for each person:
Tell us about this book. Among the stories of Narnia are The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe, which tells the story of two siblings who flee the war and move to England with a professor. They play hide and seek and find a wardrobe that leads them to Narnia, so they go there. Aslan, the great lion who will save them from the evil witch, is there.

What good things did your kids learn from this book?
People who believe in Aslan are like Christ, because he gives up his life to save them from the white witch and her crew. Are there any bad messages in this book series? If so, what are they?
A few parts of the story are scary, but all of the messages point to good things and salvation. Among the siblings, Edmund gets a lot of bad attitudes and people call him names.

In what ways have your children grown in their faith as a result of reading these books?
Since Christ is the son of God, they see what he has done for them. The best thing about this book series is what I like about it the most. The message of how Jesus’ blood can help you get to heaven. He gave his life for them, but he came back to life the same way that Christ came back to us. Aslan even gave up his own life for Edmond, the naughty brother who went after the white witch and was tricked by her.

What is the thing about this book series that you don’t like the most?
The siblings have a bad relationship with their brother Edmond, who wants to do bad things instead of good things and is tricked. It’s a big part of the book because Aslan gives up his own life for Edmund, too.

Elsie Dinsmore By: Martha Finley

Reviewed by Rachel Schaeffer, whose two daughters are 9 and 19 years old. 5-12: Read aloud (geared towards girls) 8 to 12 (girls)

You can start by telling us a little about this book series. Volume One starts with young Elsie Dinsmore at the age of 8 and has a lot of different people, both men and women, young and old. The show goes through all of their lives together, ending with Elsie as a grandmother. As you read, you learn about all of the different characters, the “character” each one has, and how that “character” shapes their whole lives. In what ways have your children grown in their faith as a result of reading these books?
Despite the fact that these books can be read by themselves, I think they are best read aloud because of two reasons. The vocabulary, at least for us, took some explaining and paraphrasing to get used to. It’s also worth noting that Elsie’s example of how to be a Christ-like person, as she interacts with other characters and responds to many different types of situations, is an invaluable tool for parents who want to teach their kids about the Bible. Stopping to talk about what is going on with each other has opened the door to real life coaching. It’s always a “message” for our kids when we read and talk together.

The best thing about this book series is what I like about it the most. Children, preteens, teens, and parents can all relate to Elsie’s humanity, even though she is a rich heiress who lived a very comfortable life during the Civil War. Elsie’s insecurities, fears and pain can be very relatable to people today. Elsie’s personal relationship with and reliance on Christ, as well as her devotion to reading and meditating on the truth in God’s Word, show everyone how to deal with these common problems in life in the right way, too. This gives both hope and conviction to the people who read it, because it shows how a life lived well with Christ-like character can be a success.

Christian Heroes: Then & NowBy: Janet Benge, YWAM

Review by Raegan Laird, who is 14, 7-12 As a group, we read: 9-13

Tell us a little about this book series, and we’ll be more interested in it. There is a book called Christian Heroes: Than and Now that talks about great missionaries who show their faith as they go around the world telling people about the Gospel! Because they believe in God, even when things seem impossible, they trust Him to help them and do what He tells them to do. People will want to have more faith after watching this show. It’s full of dangerous situations that will make people want to believe in God more.

Through this book, how has your faith grown. People who read this book didn’t just believe in God, they believe in God. I saw how people prayed to God when they were on the brink of starvation and death. Even though some of the missionaries died, their service and death saved whole groups of people from death. Yes, I believe that Jesus died for me. Most of the time, though, we don’t live that way. God did more than die for us. In the lives of these missionaries, I was able to see that God was alive through them, too. Are there any negative messages to be aware of? If so, what are they, and how can you tell if they’re there?

I didn’t find any bad lessons in these books. The best thing about this book series is what I like about it the most. I like that these books teach you a lot about history, but they don’t sound like boring history books. You can put yourself in the shoes of the missionaries and the situations they are in as you read them.
