Tony Hutter’s 5-book series, Spurgeon Stories For Children, is a favorite of ours! We bought them a few years ago and they have proved to be an excellent introduction to the ‘Prince of Preachers,’ Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
There are 52 stories in each book, and each one uses an interesting illustration from either Spurgeon’s personal life or one of his sermons to expound upon a Scripture verse.
The stories are very memorable, and just as enjoyable for children to hear (they hold the attention of our 4 year old), as they are to read. They would also make great gifts for elderly people who have difficulty holding larger books, but love to be reminded of these simple, precious truths!
(The kids knew I was writing up a recommendation for these books and one of our girls asked me to disclose that the content isn’t as childish as the covers look! )
Short and sweet, each chapter is only two pages, making them a wonderful way to close a meal, or a wonderful send off to bed.
Spurgeon Stories For Children is currently on sale for $10 a piece through Christian Book ($2 cheaper than Amazon)! You can find them here.
