I’d been looking for a reasonably simple footing in attempts to memorize Bible scripture. I feel that it’s important to have God’s words to turn toward at all times and to share with others off the top of my head. But let’s face it, with all the busy these days something so seemingly simple can be a real challenge.Often having a goal and not having a good way to get there can be very discouraging to the point of never starting.
New Year by Rich Lo is a book that I feel many children locating to a new school or country can relate too. In this story, we meet a young boy that has relocated from China to America. The story itself is based on the childhood experiences of the author/illustrator Rich Lo and his immigration to America. The differences to adjust are displayed throughout the tale in a way young children can understand.
Where Does Love Hide? by Mary Manz Simon is simple way to introduce younger children to acts associated with showing our love toward one another. The illustrations by Hannah Wood draw readers and listeners in keeping engagement from start to finish. The imagery features bright colors and smiling faces on every single page.
Too Blessed to be Stressed Inspiration for Every Day is a small daily dose that challenges one to look on the brighter side of life. Written in a way that speaks directly to the reader, it’s like the author becomes your best new pal who’s primary goal is affirming how much our Papa God loves us! The days can be dark but this little book will get one looking to the light and finding the joy in our everyday moments.
“Mommy, what’s joy? ,” my children ask me. Joy is many things as well as a wonderful emotion. Sometimes, I’ll admit, explaining a particular feeling can be difficult to word. All My Treasures: A book of Joy by Jo Witek gives children a visual into this emotion and it gives parents/caregivers a jumping board to discuss it further.
