Many of the stories in Scripture that children can relate to feature young protagonists. This is one of the many reasons that kids enjoy reading the accounts of the birth of the baby Jesus, Moses being found in a basket, and Joseph and his brothers. Children also relate to and enjoy stories that feature a battle between good and evil, such as the stories of Joshua bringing down the walls of Jericho, the tale of David and Goliath and Jonah and the whale.

Younger readers also enjoy reading stories that explain phenomena in the natural world. For that reason, children can relate to the tales of Noah and the first rainbow, and Adam, Eve and the creation of the world. Lesser-known stories that are relatable for kids are the accounts of Samson and many of the parables of Jesus, such as the account of the lost sheep and the story of the good Samaritan.
