3) The Big Red Tractor and the Little Village
Top Christian Books for Preschoolers // #3
There once was a village where the inhabitants loved a big, red tractor. This mighty machine helped them produce enough vegetables and grains to feed them through the year. The problem was, though, that it was tough to operate and broke down a lot. Despite the villagers all helping to move the tractor together, they couldn’t produce much. The villagers resigned themselves to this fate until Farmer Dave found an old book in an old attic. Farmer Dave believed the book could change their world, but the villagers were skeptical. Could it?
Francis Chan’s contemporary parable The Big Red Tractor and His Little Village shows readers a timeless truth: with God all things are possible. This is a delightful and unforgettable book for preschoolers.The Big Red Tractor and the Little Village
4) Do You Want a Friend?

Once there was a seven year old little boy whose family moved to a new neighborhood. He has a hard time finding friends and first, but then the story opens up. He finds a friend who comforts him when he is sick, makes him happy when he is sad, forgives him when he is naughty and saves him from dangerous situations. This friend is, of course, Jesus.
Do You Want a Friend?, which is Noël Piper’s sequel to Most of All, Jesus Loves You!, is a wonderful choice to teach the special preschooler in your life about God’s eternal friendship.Do You Want a Friend?

Top Christian Books for Preschoolers // #5
Sammy the sheep lived happily under the care of his kind shepherd. Unfortunately, a sheep from a nearby flock did not. Her shepherd was unkind. Thankfully, Sammy’s shepherd bought this sad little sheep and named her Precious. Sammy told Precious all the amazing things about their shepherd, but poor Precious did not believe him. In time her mistrust and doubts faded and she saw how kind the shepherd truly was to his flock.
This delightful tale comes from veteran children’s writer Susan Hunt and is based on Psalm 23. It’s a wonderful addition to the library of any preschool aged child.Sammy and His Shepherd
6) Fool Moon Rising
Top Christian Books for Preschoolers // #6
Fool Moon Rising is a rhyming, jubilant story by Kristi and T. Lively Fluharty. It recounts a crime of epic magnitude: the moon, blinded by pride, fails to see the source of his light (the sun). The conceited moon brags about his talent of shining, ability to change shapes and power to influence the tide. However, one day, overpowered by a beam of sunshine, the moon repents, becomes humble and shows gratitude to the sun.
This book takes tough concepts – like humility and pride – and presents them in a way that is easy for children to understand. Even the youngest readers learn that our talents come from God.Fool Moon Rising
7) Shoebox Sam
Top Christian Books for Preschoolers // #7
Mary Brigid Barrett crafts a beautiful tale in Shoebox Sam to help preschoolers learn the importance of giving, sharing, loving and caring.
The rhyming story tells of a pair of pink slippers that catches the eye of a little girl. “Those are the most beautiful shoes I’ve seen in all my life,” she says. The young girl meets a cobbler named Shoebox Sam and he teaches her all sorts of lessons, like “New shoes walk tight, but old shoes walk light.” A delightful book that preaches without children even realizing it.Shoebox Sam

Top Christian Books for Preschoolers // #9
What is gospel? Even adults can have trouble answering that question. But in Mandy Groce’s picture book What Is the Gospel? children learn it’s the good news from God, even though we’ve all disobeyed him. Groce uses simple words and illustrations to teach children that even though nobody deserves God’s goodness, he will reached down and rescue them regardless. A nice addition to a preschooler’s library.What Is the Gospel?
10) The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name
Top Christian Books for Preschoolers // #10
A beautifully illustrated book by Sally Lloyd-Jones and Jago, The Jesus Storybook Bible won the Moonbeam Award Gold Medal in the religion category. It shares the Story beneath all the stories in the Bible: at the center of the Story is a baby upon whom the world will depend. Because of this baby, every story from Noah to Moses to King David, tells his name. This baby is like the missing piece in a puzzle and as the Story unfolds, children piece together the puzzle. A highly interactive and creative book, The Jesus Storybook Bible is a must have for preschoolers who enjoy adventure and discovery.
11) What is the Church? (Colour Books)

What is the church? Is it a building? No, as Bill Bell and Mandy Groce tell us in What is the Church? the church is a people. This simply illustrated and told story shows children that although the activities of the church are important, it is the people within the church that matter most. An excellent choice for preschoolers to help them understand why going to church and participating in church activities is so important.
