Need Reading Ideas?

I recently saw a great post with some reading ideas for parents that want to read more books about missions to their kids.  Many of us have this as a goal, but we don’t know where to start.  Hopefully this post will give you some ideas!

Check out this post on the IMB website for some great ideas:

A Reading List for Missional Parents Raising Globally Minded Kids 

One of the books they mention is Give Your Child the World: Raising Globally Minded Kids One Book at a Time.

I own this book and find it to be a great resource.  It gives descriptions and summaries of many different books based on the part of the world they are written about and the age of the child you will be getting the book for.  If you are teaching about a region or country, you can look for books from South America or Brazil, specifically.  Take this with you to your local library or request books online ahead of time. This can be a huge time-saver for homeschooling families or moms with small children! One bonus of this book is that the books are not all about missions… many are just about life in different countries and cultures.  This will broaden your child’s idea of what the world is like.

Don’t be overwhelmed with the idea of needing to read tons of books or follow a specific program!  Just start….get one book.  If your kids aren’t excited about the first one you try, keep trying.  You will eventually find a book that piques their interest!
