Finding high quality Christian resources has definitely been the most challenging 'curriculum' area to fill for me. I'm picky, picky about how God is portrayed in story and art. Many stories are dumbed-down to the point of changing the story or losing the message of salvation and grace. Poorly illustrated books (i.e. The Super Hero Bible and others) can paint a false picture of what it means to be human, who God is, resort to sappy sentimentalism, or try to force the Bible narrative into a false pop-culture framework (the WWF) or proven mass market (i.e. the Eric Carle 'christian' knock-offs).
That said, here are the materials we find hold truth and beauty (and, yes, fun
We read age appropriate (our girls are almost 5 and almost 2) stories from The Children's Bible in 365 Stories off the Lion Press for our family 'bedtime' story. Quite short, so we can scan them in a few seconds beforehand, and lovely, true, watercolor illustrations. Dh and I plan on also using the Egermeier's Story Bible when dd1 is older, about 7.
We pray together before meals and snacks. The classic "Come Lord Jesus/ be our guest/ May these gifts/ to us be blest" or sing Johnny Appleseed's prayer or the Lord's prayer. We also read and learn prayers from Martha Alexander's Poems and Prayers for the Very Young.
There are lovely picture books, too, for storytime. Anything by Brian Wildsmith (I love his Easter, A Christmas Story, and St. Francis). Fiona French's stained-glass illustrations of passages from the King James are captivating, especially Paradise and Bethlehem. Wildsmith's The True Cross and Angela Elwell Hunt's The Tale of the Three Trees are both legends of the origins of the cross wood. Let's see... Noah's Ark by Peter Spier, Walking in God's World by Lucille E. Hein, We Three Kings illustrated by Olga Zharkova, and for toddlers the First Prayer series board books from Brimax (Thank You God, etc...).
Dh and I sing hymns and spirituals for lullabyes. And since dh is a guitar player, he's collecting anthologies of folksongs (like Ruth Crawford Seeger's), which often include Christian songs, and old family or children's hymn books (we found a wonderful old collection at our antiquarian bookseller's, but it is rare and out-of-print
), which he plays 3-5 times a week. Dd1 often sings along.
And, of course, we talk about God and creation through the course of the day.
I would love to hear what books and things others are using.
