This is going to be an ongoing list as I come across different books. 

Favorite books -
The Kingdom Series by Chuck Black  {my son absolutely loves these books, everything he could want in a book -- knights, kings, danger...}Chuck Black wrote these books to explain the Bible to his children...from Genesis to Revelation in his two series. 

Trailblazers books by Dave and Neta Jackson.  [from the website]
This award-winning series features action-packed historical fiction introducing young readers (ages 8-13) to great Christian heroes. Each page-turning book portrays a significant period in a hero or heroine's life and ministry as seen through the eyes of a young person 11 to 15 years old.
A page in the front of each book explains exactly what is fiction and which events and characters are historical, and a "More About" chapter at the end provides a brief biographical overview of the Christian hero's whole life along with resources for further reading.

So far Noah has read:   Shanghaied to China (Hudson Taylor)
                                 Escape from the Slave Traders (David Livingstone)
                                 Kidnapped by River Rats (William Booth)
up next...                    Danger in the Flying Trapeze (D.L.Moody)
