Celia Banks launches another “Bible Storytime” tour throughout the West and Midwest United States. This time the tour will feature Celia storytelling from one of her four children’s books at some of the largest Mega Churches in the country. These audiences will consists mostly of children from ages 4 to 9.

This tour appropriately comes at a time when children’s publishing has topped the general trade publishing charts. According to Richard Robinson Scholastic’s President and CEO, this trend is “leading families, readers into the bookstores.” “We are honored to be touring on the heels of a national trend in publishing that focuses on our genre of books. This will hopefully allow us to share the wholesome values our books inspire to more people,” says Banks.

Although, the holiday storytelling generally focus on Issy’s Gift, Banks’ story of giving, she has allowed the host church to choose which book she will read from the “God’s Word is Just for Me” series. This series of books have been enjoyed and shared by a diverse audience from popular religious leaders including Marilyn Hickey, to the Haitian children’s Choir that visited Kentucky during the 2010 Equestrian Games.
