The latest Themelios edition has some book recommendations for kids.  The focus is teaching good theology to kids, especially in an age when the market for publishing books to children is smorgasbord of fluff or superficiality.  The point is that kids can understand theology in imaginative ways and in ways that give them the big picture.  God wouldn’t have prescribed to parents to teach them all that He told Moses in Deuteronomy 6 if he didn’t think kids would be able to grasp it.  Think about that and check out these book recommendations here
