30 Great Devotional Books For Your Kids

Looking for some great devotional books for your kid’s library? 

As a Christian parent, teaching our kids about God is a matter of duty. It is commanded and expected.

Moms often ask me for devotional recommendations for their kids, so today I thought I’d put them all in one spot.  Hopefully this will help as you try to build your own library! We’ve read and used each of these books with our kids.

An asterisk near it means that there were things that we didn’t totally agree with in the book, but that it is still a wonderful resource. Just use discretion, as always.

Read Aloud for Young Children:

This book by Kenneth Taylor is now out of print. You can get used copies via Amazon for under $1.  This was our ALL TIME favorite book when the kids were toddlers. The pictures are beautifully inspiring! (great art is always a good thing!) The book is the perfect little size for chubby little hands. The newer updates are not nearly as nice. If you can find this used, grab it! :) There is also an Old Testament Version


Read aloud to all ages:

**Training Hearts, Teaching Minds teaches the Shorter Catechism in a family read aloud format. We did not agree with all applications, but it was excellent.   

Books I read at the breakfast table:


Girls especially enjoyed:

Pre-Teen, Teen, Mother/Daughter Books:


Boys especially enjoy:

Pre-teen to Teen guys:

The Book I always kept beside my Bible in the early days:

Hope this is a helpful list for you!

    I’ve got several of the same ones in my library. They’ve all been read and will be again by the little ones coming up! Keys for Kids is also a great devotional. It’s put out by Children’s Bible Hour.

  2. Deb says:

    I would definitely PRE read the Lies Young Women Believe and make sure it is age and situation appropriate. JMHO, but Nancy Leigh DeMoss, did not love that book if I am remembering correctly.

    • Sarah Beals says:

      Agreed. Check to be sure it is age appropriate. Our girls read it in high school and we really appreciated NLD Biblical approach to common girl struggles. It was handled tastefully.

    • Deb says:

      I meant to say LOVE NLD, not but……seems like it starts off with some extreme examples if I am remembering the right book.
