I just received a request from my niece. She wants Vol. 2 of Hymns for a Kids’s Heart for her Christmas gift this year. Last year I gave her family Vol. 1. She has three children under seven and they have used the book and CD for family devotions. The CD has become the favorite for long trips in the car and all family and friends are amazed that her children have memorized all these great hymns of the faith.

A few years ago her older sister called me before Christmas to request another volume of the Ella Lindvall Read-aloud Bible Stories. Her children requested these for bedtime stories.

I love being a “hit” with my Christmas gifts. In the CEP bookstore we have great music and book gifts for families and children that are difficult to find anywhere else.

If you want to give a gift that will bless the families in your life all year round, think about shopping in house or ordering online from

I highly recommend:

Hymns for a Kid’s Heart Vol. 1 (book with CD)

Hymns for a Kid’s Heart Vol. 2 (book with CD)

Christmas Carols for a Kid’s Heart (book with CD)

Read Aloud Bible Stories Vols. 1-4
