Sorry, Jack but after so many people jumped on this dad for daring to ask for a "Christian" based story. I finally add to add my 2 cents. Try to remember this dad only asked for a book title not how to raise his children. There could be a number of reasons why this particular genre was chose, none of which may be bad or ill advised.

The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis in the Chronicles of Narnia series.
Dr. Ben Carson (famed neurosurgeon )... his biography titled THINK BIG is super easy ready but extremely easy and sometimes humorous. He went from being the dunce of his class to the smartest in his class because his mother (who had 3rd grade education and could not read and had been deserted by her children's father and worked two jobs) decided her two boys whose report cards were bad, would be reading books and writing extra reports... Carson checked out a very simple book about a beaver, but from then on, he went from reading about animals, to astronomy to other interesting topics and went from being the dunce of his class where he was made fun of to the smartest in his class. He is also on youtube.

His book Think Big is very easy to read and children would even enjoy it because of his simple matter of fact writing style.

Why on earth are you spamming this book in a Children's Book forum? Or as a book appropriate for a 10 year old? You should be embarrassed.

Which of the books are you referring to as "spam"? They are both good books that my child enjoyed tremendously. We read them together. What is there to be embarrassed about? I really have no idea what your problem with these wonderful books are. .... strange....

RE: S. Wentz says:
I don't think a 10 year old is too young to try C.S. Lewis' Narnia Chronicles. While they're seen as more fantasy than Christian, Lewis himself was a very strong Christian and put a lot of allegory and morality lessons in the series. Just a thought. :) "

My son and I read the first book together at that age and he LOVED it! Its a great book for children as well as adults. Great suggestion!

There are children's versions of Ben Carson's biography. I've seen them in my local Christian bookshop.

ETA: But I haven't read any, so I couldn't make a recommendation except to say that his story is very inspiring.

So there are, I stand corrected.
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_n_6?rh=n%3A283155%2Ck%3ADr.+Ben+Carson+think+big%2Cn%3A%211000%2Cn%3A4&bbn=1000&keywords=Dr.+Ben+Carson+think+big&ie=UTF8&qid=1340437423&rnid=1000

While none of them are the book silky69 actually rec'd, it would be a good book for a 10yo looking for Christian inspiration.

I am sorry for unfairly accusing you silky69. I still don't think it's appropriate to rec it to a teen looking for fantasy, but that looks like a perfectly reasonable rec for here.

I guess a few people missed the poster's explanation that he lets his children read whatever they want, if appropriate. This request was for a specific project his son had to do.

For all we know the poster isn't even Christian and is indeed expanding his children's view to something other than their own perspective. Don't be so quick to censure others for censoring!

And I second the Chronicles of Narnia suggestion.

Never let children read the bible. It is full of dangerous things. Do what most parents and good Christians do and paraphrase---talk around the text. The rapes and murders are too, too much for a child. Fantasy book, yes; appropriate, no.

Try 'Six minutes past midnoght' it is not an overtly Christian book but it is a 'wholesome' adventure story!

While I'm not entire sure what grade level this would be at, Mark Twain wrote a book that is not well known called Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc. It is written from the perspective of a young boy who is Joan of Arc's friend and travels with her through her life. This is a surprising and funny read that is also very respectful.

Kindle version: Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc (Complete Volume) (Special Illustrated Edition)

It's because some "children's" fiction is sarcastic and rude. Many children's books I've read have been disrepectful and vampire books are actual considered children's reading, which is crazy. I purposely looked up Christian fiction as well so my children can fill their hearts and minds with goodness. It's interesting you use the word "narrow" because the Bible uses that exact word to describe the road to heaven. No shame at all in investing in our kid's eternal souls.
