Union Presbyterian Seminary’s fine children’s literature resource has been renamed Storypath: Connecting children’s Literature With Our Faith Story, and it has a new web address: http://storypath.upsem.edu/. Here you can find book reviews, lists of recommended books, and lesson plans. You can search for a book by title, by age group, by scripture passage, and by theme. Click on “lectionary links” and you will find books that correlate with upcoming scripture passages in the Revised Common Lectionary.
Storypath began in October 2009. It grew out of a seminary class entitled Using Children’s and Adolescents’ Literature in the Church. Many of the reviews are by students in the class, which is offered periodically, and the contributors also include professors Pamela Mitchell-Legg, and Rebecca Davis, and graduates and friends of Union Seminary. The site continues to grow. Click here for a sample list of books. This one is on the topic of adoption.
Good children’s books are good for God’s people of all ages. Many thanks to Union and to all the contributors for Storypath. It is a treasure.
