Little Pilgrim's Progress

The boys and I have been having a wonderful time reading Little Pilgrim's Progress. It is a retelling of John Bunyan's classic allegory about the Christian journey through life. It has been simplified for younger readers but contains wonderful literary language that completely captivates my children's attention. They ask me at least three or four times a day if we can read a few chapters of "Little Christian". I highly recommend this book!

If you look at the homeschooling links to the right, you will see a link to some coloring pages to go along with the reading of Pilgrim's Progress. They are beautifully done and are a great supplement. They are especially helpful for keeping little hands busy during the reading.

It always brings me joy to hear my boys begging to snuggle up on the couch to read together. I wonder what we will read next....?


  1. I pray my boys will be as excited when I started reading this story to them. Well, I actually will read them The Dangerous Journey first though!!I am happy for you that your boys are so excited.

  2. Just passing through via this page... Thank you for the link to the great coloring pages. Perfect.

  3. Thanks for the link to the coloring pages. I had used those pages several years ago with my older children and wanted to use them with my younger ones. I went searching and found you.:-)
