Connecting Children’s Books to the Lectionary

Children’s Literature: A Resource for Ministry

For years Union Presbyterian Seminary and the William Smith Morton Library in Richmond, Virginia has hosted a blog called Story Path for connecting children’s literature with themes of faith and spirituality. It is a treasure trove of ‘reviews’ of children’s books and how they can be used in a faith formation setting – at home, church and school.

On Friday, August 27, 2010 Story Path shared, “I am delighted to announce that beginning Monday, August 30, the post each Monday will be about books that might help illustrate themes in the lectionary passages for the upcoming Sunday.  So, for instance, on August 30, the books will relate to the lectionary passages that will be read on September 5.  The post will include a short summary of the book and a brief paragraph about some connections that can be made between that book and the lectionary passage.  We will not include a book for the Psalms, but we will be offering a bibliography of books related to the Psalms and prayer in a future post.”

This is a wonderful resource! Learn more about what books fit with the lessons for September 5 here.
