Thanks to a wonderful friend and blogging mentor, Mama Hall we have recently discovered Master Books. It’s a Christian publisher and they offer so many great books for children. I’m so glad to have the opportunity to introduce you to them, and to Josiah’s FAVORITE book.
Josiah is 3. He LOVES dinosaurs! He loves seeing dinosaurs. He loves talking about dinosaurs. He spends the majority of his time awake “being” a dinosaur. And he loves to read about dinosaurs. Although it is awesome to see your child’s own interests and personality come out a love for dinosaurs brings with it certain challenges. Mainly that the majority of dinosaur books, movies, media, etc. contain lies. It didn’t seem so bad at first, after all Josiah’s young and doesn’t read. So I would skip over parts of books I knew were not true according to the Bible. Or change words.
But I want him to be able to know the truth. And to be honest I didn't even know the truth about dinosaurs. Then we discovered Dinosaurs For Kids by Ken Ham. It is such a relief for Josiah to point to a part of the book asking me what it says and to be able to read it to him without any concern that I may be teaching him lies (or as Ken Ham so kindly puts it “fiction”).
We read each night as a part of our bedtime routine. We start with the Bible, and then move on to a book or two he picks, then end with Good Night Moon. Since we received Dinosaurs For Kids he ALWAYS asks for it. We are learning so much!
I highly recommend this book! It is Josiah’s favorite and he takes it with him everywhere. He wants to show it to all his friends and tells me things throughout the day he has learned. My favorite thing about this book is that I am teaching Biblical history alongside scientific history. Since there is only one true history it only makes sense to teach it as a whole.
