Suggested Books for Young Friends

We have not had opportunity to review each of these books in detail, but they have been recommended by Friends.  If you read some of these, Please let us know your reaction to each book.

We have several copies of the Holy Bible, New International Readers Version (intended for readers aged 6 - 10) in the meeting house.  We hold Bible Study on First Day, from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM.  Young Friends regularly take part in this Bible Study.
