Hope for Each Day 365 Devotions for Kids By Billy Graham is a devotional that feels one with happiness just by looking at the cover. The cheerful sunshine and the colors chosen are kid-friendly from the illustrations on the inside and out to the sunny yellow colored ribbon place keeper. The hardcover format makes this a good choice for the ages of 6-10 years old that it is intended for. Kids can sometimes be a little rough, it’s nice to know that this book should last for the 365 days it’s intended for.
The format is favorable to children. It starts in January and continues to the last day of December. If you don’t start this book, in the beginning, it’s not a problem to start at the current date. There are the dates but not yearly weekday dates to keep up with. That makes this devotional usable again and again. I firmly believe in passing devotionals like this on to others such as another sibling or another child looking to grow in their faith of God.
Each devotion the date, a title, a scripture reference verse, and a reading. There is no questions or prayer prompts. Children can read the devotional in a few minutes and contemplate it throughout their day and perhaps if they are into journaling, write their thoughts elsewhere.
In the back of the book, content includes reading plans for “30 days to Jesus” and “90 days through the bible”. Where to read is listed and a completion box to check off when it’s done. I adore this extra included content. It helps children to know even if they read a devotion it’s also to be reading directly from the word of God.
Both my 6-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter have enjoyed me reading this devotional to them during the morning hours. They understand it very well and it gives them something to think about through the day.
Whether reading this together or giving it to a child to read on their own, I feel this book is an excellent choice. whether purchased in hardcover or Kindle format.
