12 Prize Giving Books that Children Will Love

Posted by Anna Bunn  ·  Be the first to comment

Celebrating the children who attend our churches, schools and clubs is the primary reason for Prize-Giving events – but it can also be the perfect opportunity to provide fun, relevant and engaging books that encourage children to grow in faith.

For many of us it’s a once a year occasion. So finding the right book or gift is important but sometimes difficult – especially when children are new to the group or when you’re buying for two or more children in the same family. 

These are just a few recommendations that we’ve found make popular gifts and are loved by children and parents alike.  They cover a range of ages and budgets with prices starting from under £1 per book.  There are thousands of great books available but we hope this gives you a good place to start.

No Two Groups Are The Same

If there is a book that you have found really helpful or you feel deserves a mention, we’d love to hear from you. So please, do make your comment below.
