Recommended Biographies about Missionaries for Children
I wanted to recommend a few resources that we have found really helpful and enjoyable for our girls as they have begun reading over the last few years. (all links are to Monergism.com, a great online resource for finding good Christian books for all ages.) The following books are available in sets or individually and are available via amazon for the kindle as well. I'm linking to the sets because they are the better price.
