I recently starting reading to my three youngest children before bed. I always enjoyed reading to my kids and included that in our homeschool days, but somewhere along the busy and craziness that comes with our life I stopped reading to my children.
Determined to start again, I've been on the "hunt" for some great reads so I can sit with my children, especially my youngest, and read stories to them.
We found that the best time to snuggle up with a good book is after baths, before bedtime.
Fitting nicely into our routine and along the lines of what I like to read to my kids is -
About The Book -
Thomas and his father escape to their backyard tree house most evenings to watch the night sky through a telescope. Thomas is dazzled by what he sees of God’s creation, but he has questions. “Dad, how do we know God is out there?” he asks one night. “I know the Bible says He’s there. But how do we really know that’s true?” Together, Thomas and his father begin to examine the cosmological evidence for God’s existence. This is the first in an exciting new series of picture books designed to introduce kids to important questions of the Christian faith in terms even pre-readers can understand. Read this aloud with your family, and you’ll come away knowing that “the heavens declare the glory of God and the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” (Psalm 19:1).
Written by Melissa Cain Travis and published by Apologia, this very sweet, hard cover, beautifully illustrated book is a great add to our personal library to be read again and again.
I appreciate the topic as it really gets the questions flowing with my own children.
I love the conversations between Thomas and his father. It really helped my children understand, in fact I might have my older children read it as well!
This book is geared toward younger children, but I feel the topic is so good having your older children read it might be a good idea!
