We are a family of book nuts. When it's time to clean house, the books even merit their own category on the chore list. We have also been forced to dedicate one of the rooms of our home as "the book room" in order to maintain some biblio sanity.
So, we've certainly seen our share of books that encourage in children an understanding of the sanctity and dignity of life...And those that don't!
Today, I'll share with you a couple of our top favorites in the former category...Just in time to shop for Easter:)
Be Good to Eddie Lee by Virginia Fleming introduces children to a boy with Down's Syndrome. It chronicles the reluctance of the neighborhood children to embrace his differences and treat him with patience and care...And their ultimate choice to treat him with the love and compassion that every person deserves.
Amazon categorizes this book for ages 4-8 but I have seen children of all ages touched by this story...And their understanding of what it means to be pro-life expanded. The illustrations are lovely. We received this book as a gift but found it for sale at Amazon.
Angel in the Waters by Regina Doman is the story of a tiny baby growing in his mother's womb. A beautiful and entirely age-appropriate account of a baby's journey from conception until birth. The illustrations by Ben Hatke are stunning and will delight your entire household.
You are able to see the entire book online at www.angelinthewaters.com but there is no replacement for being able to hold your child in your lap with this one! Seeing the contents will only make you want to purchase it all the more. It is available at Amazon as well as a number of Christian booksellers.
