This set of 9 stories for boys, all reprints from the 19th century, are some of our richest, most challenging books for boys ages 8 to 14. Also very suitable to read aloud with younger children or for family reading.

- The Young Christian
- The Two Wealthy Farmers
- The Widow’s Son

Some of these will soon become some of your son’s favorite and most memorable stories.
Continuing in the tradition of the well-known Grace & Truth Books Children’s Character Building Collection, these volumes tell stories of young men facing challenging dilemmas in life through which they learn to grow in Christian character. They are also highly gospel-centered stories, which means that they don’t merely promote a life of good behavior, and certainly not any hope of growing up thinking that we are saved by our good works. Rather, they encourage a boy to turn in faith and repentance to Jesus Christ early in life, and run to Him for salvation and then for continual forgiveness of sin.
Originally published by the American Tract Society in the 1800s, and then during the 1970s through 1990s by the faithful ministry of Triangle Press in Montana, these stories have now been republished their highest quality editions ever.
Be sure to also see our Children’s Heritage Series Girl’s Collection, a set of eight stories for girls with similar themes and goals – to encourage our children to come to Christ early in life and then to walk faithfully with Him, resisting the world and its temptations.
The stories in the Children’s Heritage Series Boy’s Collection are well-suited to be read by boys 10-14 years of age, or for read-aloud to boys 7-9 years of age.
