My entire family really enjoys making slime. This odd but deeply satisfying concoction provides for hours of stress-free fun for those of all ages. When I heard about Adam Vandergrift’s book Slime Sorcery offering nearly 100 hundred slime recipes, I knew it needed to be added to our collection.

365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids is a “If I Could Ask God Anything” devotional by Kathryn Slattery. The main purpose is to answer questions pertaining to God and the Bible. The devotionals within aid in answering a child’s current question and even those they haven’t even thought to ask about yet in an easy to understand way.
God’s Big Plans for Me takes the 40 foundational principles written in the #1 New York Times bestseller The Purpose Driven Life by Pastor Rick Warren book and presents them in a format a child can understand. This book is more than just a collection of well-known Bible stories as it encourages readers and listeners to think and really dig deeper in their walk with God.
Monstrous Maud: Big Fright is geared toward middle-grade readers that follows many more books in this fun literary series. Monstrous Maud is an interesting character who walks to the beat of her own drum. Advertised as a great alternative to princess-themed books, I am pleased to introduce the series to my oldest whom tends to prefer the oddball, mysterious, quirky types of characters and stories to the sparkly fashion shopping boy crazy themed titles out there often promoted for girls around her age.
Night of the Living Cuddle Bunnies by Jonathan Rosen is a spooky book full of good humor. The story is about a 12-year-old boy named Devin Dexter whose cousin thinks Devin’s new neighbor is a warlock! No one believes them because well kids make up weird stories and come to odd conclusions pretty often. Strange things are amiss like the popular for Christmas stuffed bunny toys coming to life and behaving in dangerous ways!
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.
