I have recommended kids’ missions books before.

Now I have another new (September 2019) one that is crammed full of facts about other countries.

The book is done by Compassion International along with Tyndale and is a great resource for ministry kids or personal kids.

The book is a journey through many (but no where near all) countries and each of those countries has sections on such topics as heath, schooling, church, food, family, etc. Colorful illustrations show kids the country’s flag, what their houses look like, what their churches are like, etc.IMG_3231.jpeg

In each section (divided by continent) there is also a mini-book that focuses on the life of one child.IMG_3232

The back of the book has a collage of real photos from the countries and at the end is a prayer passport.


I could see a family reading about a different country each night at the dinner table … and then praying about the people in that country.IMG_3232.jpeg

I could see a kids’ ministry group take one country a month and focus on learning about that country. The group could eat food from the country, play a game, do further research, and then pray for the kids who live there.

This book is well done and I would give it a five out of five. (I do apologize for the quality of photos. I actually took these in the Wheaton Bible Church library with my phone and it was difficult to find a place without shadows or direct lighting,)
