It’s never too early to introduce the next generation to some of the heroes of faith. In this book, children will meet 52 Christian men and women (one for each week of the year) from all walks of life who wanted to live for their friend Jesus. There are missionaries, martyrs, writers, reformers, politicians, and poets. Their stories are exciting and inspiring and will show children that any of Jesus’ friends can do remarkable things for him – even them!

‘Ranging from the accomplished scientist and inventor George Washington Carver to the famous Bible translator John Wycliff, ‘Everyone a Child Should Know’ introduces our youngest children to the men and women of history whose lives exemplified 1 Corinthians 10:31, “whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” Clare Heath-White has done a marvelous job retelling their stories and the colorful illustrations of Jenny Brake are simply delightful.’ ~ Marty Machowski Pastor and author of The Gospel Story Bible, Long Story Short, and The Ology.
