In honor of Compassion Sunday, a collection of international/mission themed books were pulled out. The children's library has some fine world atlases appropriate for young readers. Along with simple rhyming books about different languages and children around the world, there were also some books published by Unisef, Heifer International and WEC. These books are wonderful introductions to different cultures, the children who live in other countries and the ways in which we as Christians can pray for and support them. A terrific addition to this theme was a book donated by the Balonek family called The Golden Chariot, True Stories of God at Work by Kids from Around the World. Curious children could also read some inspirational biographies about the missionaries Eric Liddell, Henry Hudson and Amy Charmichael.
