Title:  A Child’s First Book About Marriage: God’s Way is Always Best

Author: Jani Ortlund

Publisher: CF4Kids; Revised edition edition (April 6, 2018)

Publication Date: May 21, 2018

Format: Board book

Length: 44 pages


A Child’s First Book about Marriage is written by Jani Ortland and explains marriage to very young children. Think preschool to second grade. Jani explains marriage vows and why vows are important to keep. She also describes the joys of marriage and touches on the sadness when marriages break up.

She discusses people who want to do things their own way instead of God’s way and emphasizes the importance of kindness and at the same time, reminds children that God’s way is always best.

I like the end of the book where she suggests different ways to use the book.


Rating (1 to 5):


Suggested Audience:

Preschool – 4th grade

Christian Impact:

If you have young children, here’s a good way to get the marriage discussion started.
