ESV Children’s Bible – Lutheran Edition (Includes the full Bible text, plus several pictures, key doctrinal summaries, and Luther’s Small Catechism)
ESV Deluxe Reference Bible – Concordia Edition (Includes Luther’s Small Catechism)
The Lutheran Study Bible (ESV)
Treasury of Daily Prayer (Has the Daily Lectionary readings all printed out in one book, with brief orders for devotions and additional readings from the Church Fathers)
Lutheran Service Book (Has most of the same hymns as Christian Worship, but fewer gender neutral translations. It also features richer orders of service and, in my opinion, better devotional material.)
My First Hymnal (a collection of 51 hymns especially suitable for children, accompanied by colorful illustrations for the church year)
Concordia: The Lutheran Confessions (especially for reading the Athanasian Creed, Large Catechism and Augsburg Confession at home)
