Manna Publications offers a small library of children's books which are free to download and very easy to print on small printers or photocopiers download the PDF of printing instructions and produce as many as you need. You may print them out for your own children at home, or for use in Sunday Schools or Bible clubs. Especially children who seldom have access to books they can enjoy and take home. Many are used in third world countries where the opportunity to also supply the crayons gives even greater enjoyment.
The advantage of these books, are that a teacher can tell the story, then let the children each color a booklet that they get to take home. It will help them to retell the story to others, and thus reinforce it into their own minds and hearts.

Timothy - is the young man in the Bible who was taught by his mother and grandmother to know the Scriptures and to love the Lord. He ended up serving as a missionary and pastor. Timothy is a great example for Christian children who want to grow in faith and obedience. This book will help children consider serving in ministry when they grow up.
Samuel - was a special boy, born in answer to his mother's prayers. In turn she gave him back to God to serve Him in the temple. He learned to listen to God, who called and spoke to him at night. This story will teach children to listen for God when He calls to them personally.
