Every Day with Jesus: 365 Devotions for Kids by Pastor Dr. Charles Stanley is his first ever devotional for children. It is adapted from his book Every Day in His Presence, Every Day with Jesus and is coordinated with his devotional for adults. The coordination makes it so children and adults in the same family can discover the same theme and scripture on the same exact day. This coordination beautifully opens the door for conversation within the family unit. However, this book stands well on its own if you don’t have the one for adults.

With Love, From Me to You By Dr. Mary Manz Simon is an endearing tale for children that helps them to understand what love is and what it can look like. It’s the perfect book to pick up for both boys and girls ages 2- 6 years old during not just the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday season but year round.
In this book, we are introduced to a postman bear that travels here and there on a train. On, this train, we meet several different characters both young and old as the story unfolds. The postman sends good cheer by waving to someone that is alone, stopping to share kindness with someone that is sad, reminding someone who is angry that God loves them, and so forth.
I love learning about the ocean and all the creatures and plants that make it their home. I used to live on the Coast when I was a child and was quite taken with learning about all the wonderful things it gives back to people. I love that the sea is so vast with many undiscovered species we’ve yet to even lay our eyes upon. Life is more interesting when some things have left a mystery. Today, however, we are actually going to take a look at the many fish that have been discovered in Tam Warner Minton’s latest book “All Fish Faces“.
Benji & the 24 Pound Banana Squash is a fun book based on actual events that happened in author Alan Fox’s life when he was eight years old.

April showers bring May flowers, right? This popular proverb certainly rings true in most places in around the world, especially here for my family in Oregon. In getting excited about the Spring season and the month of April, we’ve been checking out books that celebrate everything fun the rains bring. These things include dancing in the rain, spring planting, and puddles! Speaking of puddles, we’ve been enjoying the book Puddle Jumpers – by Anne Margaret Lewis (author) and Nancy Cote (illustrator)!
I Am: 40 Reasons to Trust God is a book that I am happy to have added to my families collection of Bible story books. This book is like none I’ve come across before. It focuses on the many names of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit and spends an adequate amount of time explaining each through scripture found in both the Old and New Testament, a devotional, and ties it all together with a prayer. I can’t think of a better way to learn about the Greatness of God in all of his marvelousness but through his names! My children ages 7 and 5 years old have begun delving into a deeper understanding of who God!
