Picture books about faith are such a great way to teach our kids about the love of Jesus during the Easter season. My kids’ faces light up with excitement when they discover new books in their Easter baskets. Below are our favorite engaging stories that are sure to spark wonderful conversations about our Lord.
Through beautiful illustrations, this book tells the story of the Bible (in broad strokes, of course) from the Garden of Eden to the resurrection. Furthermore, this story explains the purpose and importance of salvation.
Arthur, as my children affectionally call this book, has been a favorite story in our house for many years. This book does a wonderful job of showing the characteristics of God in a fun and engaging way.
Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers is a series of small books with a big punch. These books explain the big ideas of the Christian faith in a way that is easy for children to understand.
“You can do hard things,” is a mantra often repeated in our home. That is the big lesson in this tale about a little lion who learns to be brave in order to save a friend.
Technically, this is not a picture book, as in it’s not telling one story. Yet, this science-based devotional is so good that I had to include it in this list.
This story wonderfully illustrates the beauty of diversity in the world and that Jesus came to Earth for everyone.
This book tells the story of a child with a disability through their sibling’s eye. Children learn we are all different but also the same. This story encourages wonderful conversations about compassion, diversity, and empathy.
I love the Little Bible Heroes series so much. Each book is a double story. You can read the first story, then flip the book over and read a completely new tale. Who doesn’t love a 2-for-1 book deal?
This rhyming picture book shows children God sees all and knows their hearts, and that fact is something to take comfort in.
Your family is sure to enjoy these picture books about faith as much as we do! Exposing my children to Jesus through books has fueled their understanding, curiosity, and love for the Lord in an exciting way. The questions and conversations we have had after reading these books have been incredible. And if your kids aren’t into reading books right now, have no fear! I have totally been there.
