The joy of reading is very important to us to share with our kids, so we are always looking to find new books for them to read. We give them all kinds of books to enjoy and on that list, we always make sure to include some books to remind them to love others, be kind, learn about adventure, and so much more. Zonderkidz has so many different titles, including bibles, devotionals, and other great books about religion. I’m sharing some of the new fall titles from Zonderkidz that I think are great for gift giving.
So often, girls and women give in to the lies that how they look and how popular they are determines their worth. But as children of God, we can have the confidence that we are loved, protected, secure, whole, and valuable because God is our heavenly father.

Using the accurate, readable, and clear New International Version (NIV) text makes the Bible accessible and easy-to-read for kids. The NIV is the result of over 50 years of work by the Committee on Bible Translation, who oversee the efforts of many contributing scholars. Representing the spectrum of evangelicalism, the translators come from a wide range of denominations and various countries and continually review new research to ensure the NIV remains at the forefront of accessibility, relevance, and authority. Every NIV Bible that is purchased helps Biblica translate and give Bibles to people in need around the world.
These are some great books, my favorite was the bible. It was perfect for my teen daughter who needed an updated bible but also something that she could relate to while learning about the bible. The Arcade and the Dazzling Truth Detector is a great chapter book for our pre-teen. The other books are great books we’ll be gifting to our nieces for the holidays. Be sure to check out the Zonderkidz website for more great books for your kids.
