Jesus said “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it” (Luke 18:15-17). Why are children so important to Jesus? It’s not simply that they represent the next generation of leaders; it’s because their capacity to understand and subscribe to a faith in the unseen God is so much greater than those who passively believe. We’ve assembled a list of top books that will certainly benefit you in your work with children, and we hope too, that your work with children will continue to benefit you and your faith as you press on to know Christ and make him known.
