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!

The Legend of the Easter Robin by Dandi Mackall–Book Review

_240_360_Book.1809.coverWhen Tressa discovers a robin building her nest outside one of her grandmother’s windows, she becomes very enthralled with it. She watches as the robin builds a nest and eventually lays some eggs in the nest, but then a frost comes. Tressa worries about the family of robins and whether or not the eggs will make it through the cold, as well as whether other animals will get to the eggs. Tressa’s grandmother tells her the story of the legend of the robin and how it got it’s red breast as they prepare for Easter.

This was a wonderful story that reminds us of the true meaning of Easter through the story of the robin. It uses the symbolism of the red breast as a visual reminder that we can use every time we see a robin. I had never heard this story and I loved it! I plan to give this to my girls as an Easter present, but I know they will love it was well. It was beautifully illustrated by Richard Cowdrey.

The Rainbow Egg by Linda K. Hendricks, M.D. –Book Review

Rainbow EggHope the chicken lives in the woods, but when she lays an egg and has no nest for it, she realizes she must find a nest for her egg. Her search leads her to the Rainbows who want an egg desperately, but cannot lay an egg no matter how they try. Follow Hope’s journey and see what happens when her egg hatches.

I think this was a beautiful story with great illustrations for kids. It would be the perfect story for a child who had been adopted. It shows the love that the mom had for the baby, but that she knew it would be better for the baby if it grew up with the other family who had a nest (home) and had desperately wanted a baby, but couldn’t have one. It’s a unique story, I’ve never read a book like this for children.

God’s Good News Storybook by Billy Graham–Book Review

_240_360_Book_1723_coverWe are given the opportunity to teach our children about God and His Word. This book has Bible stories from both the Old and the New Testament with accompanying devotional thoughts from Billy Graham. It includes the stories of Creation, Noah, David, Jesus, etc. to include 60 stories in all.

This book is a fantastic devotional for your little ones! It is well written and beautifully illustrated! I can’t wait to start it with my children (I’m using it as a Christmas gift, so I haven’t read it to them yet.) I loved the devotional thoughts from Rev. Billy Graham and the illustrations were so beautiful I know my children will love them too! I believe that teaching my children about God and all He’s done for us is the most important task I’ve been assigned to. I highly recommend this for parents to read to their children!

Song of the Stars by Sally Lloyd-Jones–Book Review

_240_360_Book_1728_coverThe entire creation is abuzz with the news that the Creator is here. The animals are shouting it, the grass, the insects, the rocks, and everything else is shouting with excitement that their Creator is here.

Are you looking for a book that tells the Christmas story for little ones from a different perspective? Then look no further, this is the book you’ve been waiting for. Beautifully written and illustrated, this book tells the story of Christ’s birth from the perspective of all of Creation, not just from our perspective as humans. I’m sure the donkey and the sheep were just as excited about Jesus birth as Mary and Joseph were. I’m sure they probably knew that Jesus was their Creator. Think about it, it’s exciting when a baby is born now, can you imagine the excitement when the Messiah, the Savior of the world, was born? I absolutely love this book, and am adding it to my collection of Christmas books for my children!
