God Gave Us Family by Lisa Tawn Bergren–Book Review

 

A family of foxes are on their way to a family reunion. Their little fox has all sorts of questions about family. While on their trip, the fox family discusses each family and how each family is different, but God gave each person the perfect family for that specific person.

 

I love these books. I love how the author explains how God gave each person the family that was perfect for them, not just immediate family, but also extended family. I love how at the beginning the little fox is not happy with his family, and finds some of his cousins annoying, but by the end, he realizes he would not change his family for anything. It is beautifully illustrated, and I know my kids are going to enjoy it. If you haven’t read any of these books by Lisa Tawn Bergren, I highly recommend them, every one I’ve read has been excellent!

I Am Devotional by Diane Stortz–Book Review

 

Our God has many names that show different aspects of His character. As we learn about each name we learn to trust Him more, and ultimately love Him more and become closer to Him. As an adult I love learning about the names of God.

 

I love the idea of teaching the names of God to my children. Before I got this devotional I received a free printable in my email that had some of the names of God, the meanings and verses to learn along with them, and started that with my children. They enjoyed that so much I decided to get the devotional to go along with it. I love the way this devotional is on the level of my children, and it helps them understand it. It starts out with a Bible verse, then has a little devotional about each name and the application of it. Then it ends with a little prayer to emphasize the application and has a set of discussion questions sometimes with a little extra study in another Bible passage. My kids love it too! They have learned a lot through this particular devotional. Definitely a great devotional for your kids!

Do you Believe in Wishes by Janki Mehta–Book Review

This book is an early reader and is supposed to encourage reading, as well as teach children to be kind, honest and well behaved. It is all about a little fairy who grants wishes to good little children. There are two stories in this particular book. The first story shows a little girl who lost her ring in a beautiful garden, and Fairy Ella shows her a few rings that aren’t hers to see if the little girl is honest, and if she is, she gets a wish granted. The second story follows Ella as she searches a town for a child who is being good, and if they are a good boy or girl she will grant them a wish.

This was a cute book. My kids loved the beautiful pictures. They look just like the cover, like they’re hand drawn/painted, and very pretty. They loved the stories with the little fairy. My children love books and this one was no exception. For little children who love fairy tales and make believe this is a perfect story book with beautiful pictures! It’s hard for me to judge exactly what reading level to put this on since it’s recommended as an early reader. I would say maybe late first grade or second grade. Since I’m not an expert here’s a sample sentence from the book to give you an idea for your child:

“While resting she heard something, it was a sound of laughter.”

Click here to get yours today!

This activity book is perfect for children of all ages. If you want it for your own children or just for activity/coloring pages for using in your Sunday School class. I was very impressed with the variety of activities in this book. I mean typically you get a book like this and it’s a lot of coloring pages with pretty much the same types of activities throughout the book, but as you can see from my pictures below, there are beautiful coloring pages, secret code activities, word searches, dot-to-dots, acrostics, and there are many, many more. According to the back of the book there are more than 200 coloring pages, and more than 150 activity pages in this book.

I know my kids are going to love doing the activities in this book. I love it because it reinforces the Bible stories I’ve been teaching them about. Another feature I was impressed with was that this book is arranged in chronological order with references to where you can find the story for each coloring page/activity page in the Bible. I highly recommend this book for parents and teachers alike, it will be an amazing resource for anybody who is teaching kids, their own or just in general. I will say that any verses that are quoted in this book are in the Christian Standard Bible version. I personally use the King James Version so I will just change those when I use them to my preferred version, but I wanted to let others know in case that’s a deciding factor for you.

Really Woolly Easter Blessings by Bonnie Rickner Jensen–Book Review

 

Spring is a time where things come back to life, and new life is just beginning. This rhyming devotional for children shows the Really Woolly characters learning not only about spring, but about the Easter story. Your kids will love it!

 

I love getting new devotionals for my kids. I love to teach my kids about God and His love for us. These rhyming devotionals are especially nice for smaller children. The illustrations in this book were beautiful and perfectly suited for your kids. Each devotional starts with a Bible verse, then is written in a cute rhyming fashion. At the end is a prayer starter for you and your kids as you pray together. I am going to give mine to my kids on Easter, but I know they’re going to love it! Be sure to grab your copy today (available February 21)!

Lights in a Dark World

_240_360_Book.1731.coverThe most important part of Christmas is not toys or Santa Clause, but the birth of our Savior. This book takes Christmas story and brings it to life in a new way. It brings out things you might not think of such as all the noises of the stable keeping the little baby Jesus awake at night.

I really enjoyed this book. I know my children will love it when I read it to them at Christmas time. The illustrations were absolutely beautiful. The one thing I didn’t like about it was how it included the wise men at the stable with Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus, when they didn’t come until Jesus was a little older and they were living in a house in Bethlehem (Matthew 2:11). Overall, it’s a great book for your kids that tells the most important story of all!
