Your Core By Callie Grant

Everyone has an inner place made by God for welcoming and meeting with Him. Inspired by Ephesians 3:14-19, Your Core appeals to the youngest readers with simple text and colorful scenes to convey a difficult concept to grasp—even for many adults.
This is an Absorb book, which connects studies about the facts of God with a child’s inner life. Children assimilate on a personal level who God is and how they are made to be with him, trust him and love him—the life of a believer.
What a simple, yet powerful storybook! Easy to read and understand for small children and the illustrations are so vibrant and eye catching. I've read it to my son several times and helps me answer questions he may have in a much simpler way. I love that there's more and more literature showing up for children teaching them about their spiritual life and values.

Answering Your Kids' Toughest Questions: By Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson

The Honest, Loving Answers Children Need to Hear

It's not easy to know what to say when a child asks about a dying grandma, or the reality of the devil, or some act of violence featured on the news. But ignoring the questions won't help. Elyse Fitzpatrick and her daughter Jessica Thompson carefully walk parents through these difficult conversations, one topic at a time. These experienced moms will come alongside readers, offering helpful hints and age-appropriate guidelines on how much to share and when. And most importantly, they teach how to answer children in a way that points back to the truth of God's amazing love.


I'm sure we could all use some direction when it comes to answering tough questions our children have regarding their faith, and come on, they are going to have them. Their answers are backed by scripture which is one reason I know I'll refer to this book for a long long time. It gives us insight in how to respond to children as young as 5. While there is no one book that has all the answers kids ask, this is a great one to add to your library. Definitely a 5 star!
