I want to thank Christian Focus Publications for providing me with a copy of Who Will Save You?: John Knox in return for my honest opinion.
Catherine Mackenzie’s Little Lights series is a delightful collection of Christian biographies for children aged 4-7. I began reading these to my boys when they were around 2 and 3 years old, and we used the earlier books in the series to practice reading when they were first learning.
One aspect of the stories that helped with reading was that they are told simply and engagingly, beginning in the childhood of each Christian hero, and moving through their life. Each spread is unique in that the left-hand side of the page is for the parent to read to the child (or for young readers to practice their skills), and the right-hand side of the page there is a simple sentence for the very earliest readers to read.
If you have children under the age of eight, I highly recommend the entire Little Lights series.
