Wow!: The Good News in Four Words {Book Review}


Wow! The Good News in Four Words by Dandi Daley Mackall is a great hard-cover picture book! It is geared toward boys and girls ages 3-6 years old. It presents in a simplified way on how to come to know Jesus as their own personal Savior and Lord.

The main four words used are Wow, Uh-oh, Yes, and Ahh. Each word is broken down through the book. The word “Wow” for example demonstrates and explains the creation of the world, the word Uh-Oh shows how sin entered the world and how we became separated from God, you get the picture. The message is powerful and it’s the most simplified version of the gospel I’ve seen for children in this age range.

Slow Down Embracing the Everyday Moments of Motherhood {Book Review}

 

Slow Down Embracing the Everyday Moments of Motherhood by author and musician Nichole Nordeman is written by a mom for other moms. This book is suitable for new mothers as well as for moms that have been at it for awhile. It’s really a gentle nudge to not miss out on the everyday moments. Parenting is hard, life is busy, and if we blink time will go by so quickly that we find ourselves really missing out on those moments we can’t get back.

My Great Big God is a nice Bible story board-book offering for young children. There are twenty stories total taken from both the Old and New Testament of the Bible. The stories are easy to grasp for young children as they are written simply. The rhyming format also makes the stories easier to read for the and for kids to remember and pay attention to.

Each story features a title, scripture reference ( you can read the entire story from the Bible if you want to), a simplified retelling, and an important attribute of God to remember. A few examples of the attributes pointed out are “My Great Big God has a plan for me”, saves the day, gave us Jesus, makes big things happen, and so forth.

My 15-month-old loves the song If You’re Happy and You Know It, in fact, it was the first song she ever responded to with actions at a few months old. Anytime it’s sung she smiles and claps her hands. Now she says some of the words like clap, stomp, and yay (hooray) and responds in actions too.  When I discovered If You’re Happy and You Know It (A Sing-Along Book) I knew it would be a wonderful addition to her book collection!
