The Children’s Heritage Series
The Boy’s Collection
This set of 9 stories for boys are some of our richest, most challenging books for boys ages 8 to 14. Every one of them is a reprint from the 19th century. The Children’s Heritage Series Boy’s Collection are also very suitable to read aloud with younger children or for family reading.
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. This means, they don’t merely promote a life of good behavior or hopes of being saved by our good works. Rather, they encourage a boy to turn in faith and repentance to Jesus Christ early in life. Then, to live a life in pursuit of godliness while continually looking to grace for teh forgiveness of sin.
They were originally published by the American Tract Society in the 1800s. From 1970-1990s, the faithful ministry of Triangle Press in Montana kept them in print. But now, these stories have been republished in their highest quality editions ever.
The Children’s Heritage Series Boy’s Collection includes:
- Gerrit and His Dog
- A Faithful Boy’s Influence
- Grace to the Humble
- The Young Christian
- The Two Wealthy Farmers
- The Widow’s Son
- The Negro Servant and the Black Prince
- Rescue at the Eleventh Hour
- Kanousky, the Indian Boy and David Brainerd, the Indian’s Missionary
Some of these will soon become some of your son’s favorite and most memorable stories.
Be sure to also see our Children’s Heritage Series Girl’s Collection. It’s a parallel 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.
