I am looking for some good fictional Christian books for my son to read over the summer.  He is 8 1/2 and a good reader.  

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Would that mean that he's completed grade four?

The Narnia Series by C.S. Lewis would be perfect. Unfortunately Logos doesn't carry it (yet). By I'm still hoping.

Using adventure and community to challenge young people to continually say "yes" to God

Probably not. More likely third grade.

Bernstain Bears at Vyrso. There is something like 45 titles. In addition, you will find other children resources there.

"Left Behind"  The Kids series.    Excellent read for youngsters of his age.

I suggest that you consider the books on "A Christian Classical School Reading List: 3rd grade" list at http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/20905.A_Christian_Classical_School _Reading_List_3rd_grade

or consider some of the reading lists from Christian schools such as :

http://www.stillwaterchristianschool.org/cms/lib2/MT02001626/Centricity/Domain/82/Third%20Grade%20Summer%20Reading.pdf

http://www.ccssmyrna.org/editoruploads/files/3rd%20Summer%20Reading%2015-16.pdf

etc.

George Macdonald's The Princess and the Goblin, and The Princess and Curdie would be great! Lewis and Tolkien both pulled a lot of their ideas from his books!

I assume Jan means adapted as a children's book. I'm not sure if my memory is correct, but I believe I first read Ben Hur as a comic book.

When I was small I also read Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress adapted as a children's book.

Edit: I see that Vyrso offers an adaptation of the Pilgrim's Progress by Helen L. Taylor.

Sounds like a perfect volume... the edition with fresh illustrations is more money but well might be worth it.
