Great books for any family or school library

Today, I have two children’s books to discuss. First a story about courage and faith and another about friendship.


Stories of Courage and Faith by Isabella Augustus presented two biblical stories which demonstrate courage and faith in the face of danger and uncertainty. First, The Courageous Three is the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego from the book of Daniel. These men stood up to King Nebuchadnezzar, the Babylonian king, where they refused to worship the gold statue of the king. As punishment the men were thrown in to a furnace. And when the men came out, they did not have a single mark on them. As they were saved by God for their courage and faith. The second story is David, the Shepherd Boy. As David was the only Israelite brave enough to fight Goliath, the giant of the Philistines. He would defeat him with a single stone and a slingshot. This book is a great way to introduce children to Biblical heroes. I recommend it for any school or family library. 


The Bunny and the Mysterious Butterfly by Carmel Rivello, illustrated by Toby Mikle is a story of Bella, the bunny. She lived in Farmer Sam’s garden. She loved her life but she was lonely. Then a magnificent butterfly came to her. Flutter came to bring her love, joy and friendship. Soon Bella has many friendship among the birds, bees, ladybugs and fairies. I enjoyed this book about friendship and how friends can open our world to so many beautiful things, including more friendships. I recommend this book for any school or family library.
