By Pike and Dyke: A Tale of the Rise of the Dutch Republic by G.A. Henty.

Unknown to many of our own generation and that of our children is the heroic Dutch fight to keep Protestantism from being uprooted by the Spanish. Few have been taught of the persistent efforts of the Prince of Orange or of the huge obstacles he faced as leader of the Dutch Protestants.

Shepherding A Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp.

Many parents are looking for godly material to help them in the raising of their children. Sadly too many books on this subject contain a mix of secular psychology and unbiblical methods within their pages. This volume provides refreshing material for thirsty parents. Its content is Biblical and practical. The book is divided into two parts: Foundations for Biblical Child Rearing and Shepherding Through the Stages in Childhood. From the outset the author reminds the reader of the importance of helping our children focus on the heart and what flows out of it. Parents cannot be satisfied simply with outward conformity.
