Summer Reading by Katie Lancaster

Summer Books – for kids

Did you know: Academic theologians and pastors work weekly to pair children’s literature with scripture?  In collaboration with the William Smith Morton Library at Union Presbyterian Seminary, Storypath connects children’s literature with our faith story.  I’ve been using Storypath as a resource for many years, and I thought you might be interested – whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle.

As you head out for summer vacations, consider using this site to find well reviewed books that can guide and nurture your children through picture and story books, or inspire your young readers through early teens.

How might favorite classic picture books, like The Very Hungry Caterpillar, become ways to explore God?

Could early readers begin to wonder about caring for God’s creation by reading The Curious Garden?

Or, how might one of my favorites, The City of Ember,  offer older elementary youth a chance to understand the spiritual themes of light and darkness?
