Little Pilgrim’s Progress
From John Bunyan’s Classic
This is the very best simplified edition of The Pilgrim’s Progress ever produced, with small children in mind (for ages 6 to 12). Read to me: ages 6-8. Read on my own: ages 9-12.
Over 60 years ago, Helen Taylor took up the labor of love to simplify the vocabulary of Bunyan’s classic work, while keeping the story line intact. This is by far the best, and most faithful-to-the-original simplified version of Bunyan’s classic that we know of. Let your youngest children discover the riches of God’s grace along with the rest of the family as they can follow Pilgrim’s journey.
If you’re not familiar with the story, it is a gripping adventure and profound allegory of the Christian journey through life. Fresh illustrations for today’s children enliven the story of Pilgrim’s voyage to the Celestial City.

A Reader Review:
I started reading the book Little Pilgrim’s Progress when I was a lot younger. In fact, you could say it was far back enough that my parents had to read it to me! Honestly, it was one of my favorite books of all time. For a reason unknown, eventually the paperback volume was left on a shelf, unfinished. It wasn’t until many years later that I finally picked it out, dusted it off, and started again from scratch.
Little Pilgrim’s Progress is a beautifully written book, and although the theme could steer some away, it has everything you’d want in today’s fiction or fantasy. Being one of the most compelling and imaginative books I’ve read, the pages are full of morals and fantastic hidden meanings. It’s filled with unreal scenarios and wonderful characters, although the main aspect of Christianity is just so perfectly placed. It’s easily one of the novels that you can get completely lost in.
