Oh, the ways we can help with our hands!
I’ve been a fan of Max Lucado for awhile but never owned one of his children’s books until now. It was no surprise when I fell in love right away with the book I was given to review by Max through Book Sneeze called One Hand, Two Hands.
100 Prayers God Loves to Hear, 100 Praise Songs is one of latest of many books by Stephen Elkins that we’ve been enjoying adding to our children’s home library. This book is filled with many colorful eye catching illustrations that are done by well known children’s book illustrator Tim O’Connor.
In this book, you’ll find 100 prayers, both well known and those you may have never heard before. Each prayer is introduced with a short story/devotional showing how each prayer can practically be applied each day. You’ll also find quotes and prayers from famous people and Bible characters as well as daily prayer reminders.
I like that for each daily devotion you can also incorporate either of the two full length music Cd’s included. When using this book you can sing, read, and discuss with heart to heart talk, which overall makes a great devotion time for your children.
Another great feature is that in the beginning of the book there is a section that highlights ten verses that speak about prayer. I think it would be great to memorize these over the span of doing the devotion with your kids! I say this book is a definite must to own for young kids!
Jesus taught with hands-on lessons and illustrations. The Hands-On Bible uses the same experience-based learning to communicate God’s Word in an active, understandable way. This new edition features updated tip-ins, a more portable size for kids, an attractive cover, and online parenting helps. With hundreds of fun, memorable activities and the full New Living Translation text, the Hands-On Bible is packed with activities and experiences that invite kids to crawl inside the Scriptures and “do” God’s Word!
The Hands-On Bible will bring joy and delight from both boys and girls. This is one cool Bible that I wish was around when I was growing up! This Bible is more than just a Bible as it includes a huge variety of activities, crafts, fun facts, science projects, and many more great things that are sure to get your child to engage! I love all the extra content added as I know it’ll impact kids to learn even more about the Word of God as they take each of the extra activities pertaining to the lesson to heart. Also, this Bible would be fantastic for family Bible time, as it can get the whole family to come together in learning about our God and savior!
To this date, I have found that the New Living Translation of the Word one of the easiest to read so I praise this Bible for sticking with this version for kids. This Bible is packed full of so much information from how to use the Bible, to understanding and living the truths told, key verses to apply and take to heart, Biblical character bios, dictionary/concordance, full color maps, and so much more! I can’t say enough about this Bible!
The Hands-On Bible is a a wonderful gift idea for any family that has children and it’s a perfect gift all around that I’m sure will greatly be appreciated by kids of all ages. With MYHANDSONBIBLE.COM the whole family can be involved with the Hands-On Bible. You can download free music, get family devotions, and much more.

Disclosure: I was sent the Hands on Bible for review purposes because of my membership with the Tyndale Blog network all thoughts and opinions are my own unless otherwise stated.
It’s not often that I’ll be so excited to go off and purchase a whole set of books but Kaaren Pixton has redefined the world of books for babies and parents alike with her fantastic variety of titles in the Indestructibles series!
I wish I had known about the books when my first child was much younger, she would have loved them and I wouldn’t have had to worry about her destroying any books. We all know that little babies love to gnaw and are a bit rough trying to master those fine motor skills. Books get left destroyed and not all at usable for your next child or grand kids! So it’s fantastic news that there are books now out that can take the wear and tear of young babies!
Indestructibles is honestly every parents answer for books even if they don’t know it yet! Their line of books are completely baby safe! They are water-proof, tear-resistant, and baby-durable! These books don’t have any words but do feature very stimulating illustrations of birds, bugs, and more. My two year old daughter actually loves when we look through them together and we make up our own little stories. So honestly people, these books are great for all ages, just let your imagination take you.
We plan on purchasing the rest in the series because we know without a doubt that baby number two is going to love them! These books are wonderful keepsakes and would make wonderfully unique baby shower gifts! I consider them a real steal for only around four to five dollars each!

The Bible Jumble for Kids is a fun puzzle book that features a total of two hundred Bible based and themed puzzles! There are six categories which include: traditional jumbles, mystery person jumbles, jumble detective, jumble criss-cross, find the jumbles and Bible passage jumbles.
If kids are a little lost or just can’t figure out one of the puzzles,there is a themed Bible verse reference at the top of the page. Also, all the answers are in the back of the book.
An example of jumble in the Mystery Person category is as follows: Mystery Person #20 “One Who Washed His Hands” verses Matthew 27:11-26. Clues include Jewish Religious Leader, Not Guilty, Something Unexpected, and To Let Go to name a few. And if you haven’t figured it out, the jumble is referring to Pilate.
I think this a great book for kids! You can easily bring it along on vacation for those long flights or the seemingly never ending times on the road! Though not limited to vacation times, your child can enjoy this Jumble book any day of the week and it could even be incorporated into a daily or weekly personal Bible study lesson.

My daughter is a big fan of this book! The illustrations are quite eye catching and the book is a very easy read as it has a fun rhyming style. My daughter enjoyed me reading this book and asks for it every night before bed. This book as simple as it may be illustrates a big lesson that whether plans don’t go as you wish that being together is what really matters in making wonderful memories together.
