Shalom Readers

Shalom Readers Teaching Peace, Forgiveness and Justice through Reading

Adult leaders help children aged 4 through 14 select and read books from a list specially chosen to teach core Christian values from an Anabaptist understanding. If children read seven books and give reports on two of them, they may earn a gift book of their choice from the list.

The Bible teaches us much about peace, love and justice. We believe that Christ mandated a new perspective and practice in response to these issues. The Hebrew word for this is “Shalom”. We hope that by reading these books children will discover new ways of looking at the world as you learn about people in other lands and other times.
